Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

FAQ for the Fixed-Price Intent-to-Purchase Draw on Saturday, February 25, 2023

I cannot attend the event on February 25, can I participate in the sale as an Absentee?

Yes, see the Absentee Buyers section below.

Can I purchase more than one ticket to increase the odds of my name being drawn?

Yes. One ticket includes one ballot book.

What does “fixed price” mean?

The price listed is the price the buyer will pay. Unlike an auction, there is no bidding in a fixed-price draw.

How does the draw work?

Each ticket buyer is assigned a ballot book with a unique Buyer Number. The book consists of one ballot for each piece of art. For each artwork a buyer wishes to purchase, write your name on the corresponding ballot, and deposit the ballot into ballot box with the artwork. At the designated times ballots will be randomly drawn and the names posted. Please see the complete Rules of Sale for more details.

If I put my name in for several pieces, am I responsible for buying all of them if my name is drawn?

Yes. Please make your selections carefully. You are responsible to purchase all artwork for which your name is drawn, and all sales are final.

How do I pay for the artwork?

All purchases must be paid in full the night of the sale unless you have registered as an absentee buyer. Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover are accepted.  Sales tax will be added, when applicable. Cash and checks are also accepted and generate more support for the museum. Absentee buyers see the section below.

Are there other expenses?

Maybe. Sales tax may apply. Shipping, if required, is paid for by the buyer. An Autry representative will contact you about the shipping expense and to coordinate the delivery of artwork.

When can I expect my artwork?

All artwork remains on exhibit through March 26, 2023. The art shipping process begins on April 10, 2023.  An Autry representative will contact you to coordinate delivery.
