Desperate Artwives Online Auction 2017

Read more ...


Desperate Artwives is excited to present its very first Online Art Auction. The aim of the auction is to support and promote the work of contemporary women artists who are mothers. Maintaining an artistic practice after becoming a mother is a constantly evolving process often fraught with difficulties and Desperate Artwives have sought to support artists in this journey since its inception in 2011.
The online art auction will provide a platform for artists to sell work in a proactive way. It will also help to raise funds for the DAW project, which is currently a completely self-funded organisation. Money raised will go towards our upcoming project "Homework" which will be announced in the New Year.

We are immensely grateful to all the wonderful artists who have agreed to participate in our online art auction this year, and to those who have encouraged us in this new venture. We very much hope to make it an annual event.

Thank you all in advance for your interest and support in this year's Desperate Artwives Online Auction!

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.
