BID

Visual Arts Scotland is delighted to announce BID, a 24-hour online auction created in collaboration with artist John Ayscough to raise funds for the the Emergency Art Workers Support Fund (EAWSF).

The auction will run for 24 hours only: opening at 6pm on Friday 1st May and closing at 6pm on Saturday 2nd May. After the auction has closed, winning bidders will be sent an invoice for delivery from the artist's studio/home to the bidder's address. We will aim to use Royal Mail services, however you can let us know if you have any specific requirements. Worldwide delivery is available. Some delivery services are affected by lockdown restrictions, so we may experience some delays.

EAWSF is a temporary relief fund organised by Visual Arts Scotland that aims to support creative practitioners affected by COVID-19, facing an immediate loss of income as a result. We are delighted that 34 recipients benefited from our first round of funding, all thanks to our sponsers, funders and donations. Through BID, we hope to raise more funds for a much-needed second round.

We are extremely grateful for donations of unbelievable work to this auction from an incredible selection of artists such as Calum Innes, David Shrigley, Claire Barclay, Martin Boyce, Paul Keir, Christine Borland, David Nash, Andrew Cranston, Susie Leiper, John Beagles, Robbie Bushe, Barry McGlashan, Mary Morrison, Elaine Speirs and many more.

Any questions about the art, artists, or EAWSF are wholeheartedly welcomed. We are passionate about representing these artists and this incredibly important cause, so get in touch via contact form on this page, or email info@visualartsscotland.org.

Enjoy!

When bidding on an auction item, if you enter more than the minimum increment for an item then your bid will be used for proxy bidding. This is how it works:
1. You enter the absolute maximum that you are willing to bid for an item.
2. jumblebee places a bid on your behalf, using the minimum amount required to make you the highest bidder, i.e. current bid price plus bid increment OR the reserve price, if there is one and it can be covered by your proxy bid.
3. jumblebee continues to bid on your behalf, whenever you are outbid by another member's bid, until your maximum bid is exceeded or the auction is won.
4. jumblebee will notify you by email if your maximum bid is outbid by another member and provided the auction is still running, you will then have a chance to enter a new maximum bid if you wish.
For example:
The current bid on an auction item is £100. The minimum increment is £10. You enter a bid of £150 (your maximum bid).
Using your bid, but increasing only by the minimum increment, jumblebee sets the current bid to £110.
Another person bids £130 but they are immediately outbid by jumblebee bidding on your behalf and the current bid goes up to £140.
The auction finishes and you have won the auction item at a price of £140.
