When do Miniatures go on sale?

Miniature paintings go on sale on Saturday, February 27, 2021, at 1:00 p.m. PST, at which time you will be allowed to add items to your cart and enter credit card information on our website.

IMPORTANT: You do NOT need to create an account beforehand to purchase online.

Miniature paintings are sold only online on a first-come, first-served basis. From February 27 to March 13, 2021, these will be sold with a 25% Buy-It-Now premium. The 25% premium is a tax-deductible donation benefiting the Autry.

NOTE: On March 14, 2021, any Miniature paintings that are still available go back to their original retail price.

How do I purchase a Miniature?

You may purchase Miniatures on our website: TheAutry.org/Masters. Credit card payments are accepted online. Please have your credit card billing information and shipping address information handy so you can complete the check-out process quickly.

IMPORTANT: You do NOT need to create an account beforehand to purchase online.

If you are interested in artwork other than a Miniature painting, please see “Major Works: Fixed-Price Intent-to-Purchase Random Drawing” 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 shipping expenses and to coordinate delivery or pickup of the artwork.

When can I expect my painting?

All artwork remains on exhibit at the Autry through the run of the show. Distribution of artwork will commence on April 12, 2021. An Autry representative will contact you to arrange pickup or shipping.

Can Miniatures be purchased after March 13?

Definitely! Please visit TheAutry.org/Masters to see what’s available. All available artwork remains for sale through Sunday, April 11, 2021.

MAJOR WORKS: FIXED-PRICE INTENT-TO-PURCHASE RANDOM DRAWING

Do I need to purchase a ticket to participate in the random drawing?

No. There is no ticket or registration fee to participate in the random drawing. You only need to complete a ballot, available at TheAutry.org/Masters.

Completed ballots must be submitted online by March 11, 2021, at 5:00 p.m. PST. There is no advantage to submitting a ballot early; just be sure to list all the artworks you wish to purchase. You will not be able to change a ballot once it has been submitted.

What does “fixed-price intent-to-purchase” mean?

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

By entering your name into the random drawing, you intend to purchase the artwork at the listed price if your name is selected.

How will the random drawing be conducted?

Because we are not able to do an in-person drawing, your ballot will be entered into a computer program designed specifically for this use, and winners will be determined randomly.

When will the winners of the random drawing be announced?

Winners will be announced on Saturday, March 13, at 4:00 p.m. PST. Results will be posted on our website and at a virtual live event via Zoom. When you submit a ballot online you will automatically receive an invitation to the Zoom event.

May I enter my name more than once for a particular piece of art?

Only one ballot per email address is allowed.

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 for purchasing all artworks for which your name is drawn, and all sales are final.

The ballot has spaces for six artwork selections. May I enter the same piece of art six times?

No. The artwork selections on the ballot must all be different. Listing the same piece of art more than once on your ballot will void your ballot.

Are there other expenses?

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

When can I expect my artwork?

The art distribution process begins on April 12, 2021. An Autry representative will contact you to arrange pickup or shipping.

How do I pay for artwork?

An Autry representative will contact you for payment. We accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover. Sales tax will be added where applicable.

BRONZES ON EXHIBIT & ADDITIONAL CASTINGS

For bronze sculptures, the first name drawn purchases the piece on exhibit in the Autry gallery. This means that this piece will either be shipped from the Autry to the buyer or picked up at the Autry by the buyer.

After the exhibit piece is sold, additional castings will be sent to subsequent winning buyers directly from the sculptor.

Can artwork be purchased after March 13?

Definitely! Please visit TheAutry.org/Masters to see what’s available. All available artwork remains for sale through Sunday, April 11, 2021.
