Online Auction

 

What It's About...

The worldwide renaissance in botanical art is flourishing!

More than ever, thousands of people are creating and appreciating this stunning art form that celebrates our connection with the natural world.

Our Annual Online Art Auction is opening on March 26th through April 27th. This is an excellent opportunity to share and sell your botanical art to a wider audience while also supporting ASBA. We ask that you consider donating a piece of your botanical art to this important event. This will be our fourth annual ASBA online auction hosted by Bidding For Good. Here is is the link to the auction home page which will go live on March 26, 2018: https://www.biddingforgood.com/asba/2018

Members of ASBA can offer original art, gicleé prints (5 maximum), art materials or equipment, and classes. Any item must have a minimum value of $100. The ASBA website, ASBA’s journal The Botanical Artist, ArtPlantae.com and ASBA’s monthly emailed Highlights will promote the auction. Participants in the auction will receive a promotional statement for posting on their website, blog, Facebook, Twitter or other social media designed for public awareness.

 

Auctioning your art

Proceeds from original art sold through the auction will be divided 50/50 between the artist and ASBA. Two-dimensional botanical art only; no photography and no digitally generated work will be accepted. When choosing a piece for auction, please consider that the quality reflect ASBA standards. After the work is sold, you, the artist, will be put in direct contact with the winner of the auctioned item and you will be responsible for shipping the artwork to the winner. ASBA will remit payment to the artist after the auction is completed, they have received payment from Bidding for Good and the winner has received the art.

 

AUCTIONING GICLEÉ PRINTS

An ASBA member may contribute up to 5 different or same gicleé prints for auction. All proceeds from these sales will go to ASBA. After the work is sold, you, the artist, will be put in direct contact with the winner of your auction item and you will be responsible for shipping the prints safely to the winner. So please factor an approximate shipping cost into your opening bid.

 

OTHER CONTRIBUTIONS

Other contributions such as books, art classes, art supplies or art wearables can be donated by either yourselves or vendors. These are considered contributions to ASBA and proceeds will go directly to ASBA. It will be the contributor’s responsibility to finalize arrangements with the winner of the auction item and ship to the winner.
