Fixed-Price Intent-to-Purchase Draw
The Masters of the American West Art Exhibition and Sale opens Saturday, February 11, 2017. Each sponsor and all persons purchasing tickets will receive a ballot book(s) consisting of one intent-to-purchase slip for each piece of art. For each artwork you wish to purchase, write your name on the intent-to-purchase slip that matches the number on the ballot box next to the artwork, and insert the slip into that box. The art Item # (e.g., Item #101) is in the upper-right-hand corner of the intent-to-purchase slip. The Item # of the slip and the number on the box must match.
At the designated times (see below) ballots will be randomly drawn and the names posted. The purchaser confirms the sale by claiming and signing the sales receipt from the assigned Gallery Assistant. Once confirmed, the Gallery Assistant will write SOLD next to the artwork.
PLEASE NOTE: All art purchases must be paid in full the night of the sale. Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover are accepted. Cash or check are also accepted and generate more support for the museum.
