Rules of Sale

Fixed-Price Intent-to-Purchase Draw

The Masters of the American West Art Exhibition and Sale opens on Saturday, February 10, 2018. Each All-Day ticket holder or sponsor will receive a ballot book(s) consisting of one intent-to-purchase slip for each piece of art. Each ballot book has a number that is registered to the purchaser of that book. 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 Item # of the slip and the number on the box must match.

Miniatures ballots are in a separate section of the ballot book. These ballots are blue and the item # begins with M.

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. The name on the ballot must match the name of the person claiming the sales receipt. Once confirmed, the Gallery Assistant will write SOLD next to the purchaser’s name.
