Buying Art

  • Bidders must be members of Windycon. As a handy side effect, we’ll give you a card to record the pieces that you’ve bid on for your reference (it’s called the back of your badge).
  • Bidders may write their bids on pieces in the Art Show until 6:00 PM Saturday night. Beware there are no Sunday sales of auction pieces. Bids must be in whole dollars. No Bitcoins, we’re old fashioned.
  • Bidders must start with the minimum bid or higher. If you bid lower than the minimum bid printed on the bid sheet, your bid will be disqualified It will be crossed off and not count for sending the art piece to auction.
  • Clearly print your badge name, badge number, and bid amount in the space provided. If it is difficult for you to do so, please ask for assistance. If your writing is ineligible we will have to disqualify the bids.
  • Pieces with 1 or 2 bids, as of closing on Saturday are considered sold to the highest bidder. Remember, no Sunday sales of auction pieces.
  • Pieces with 3 or more bids as of closing will be sold at the live auction on Saturday night. The bidding will start at the highest bid amount.
  • There will be no Sunday bidding on pieces in the Art Show.
  • Pieces in the Print Shop may be purchased at any time when the Print Shop is open. Buyers may take these items at the time of purchase.

Picking Up Purchased Art

If you are the high bidder, you must pick up and pay for your purchase using cash, checks, travelers checks, Visa, or MasterCard Sunday.

Art may be picked up Sunday before 2:00 PM. If you do not pick up your art Windycon will place a hold on your Registration name for the following year. If you are not able to pick up the art on Sunday, please see an art show staff member to make arrangements, we will work with you.
