Due to COVID-19 restrictions, DVSA implemented a modified format for this edition – bidding for all artwork is online. Bidders can remain at home and do all their viewing and bidding online.
Online bidding for the Featured Artworks ends at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, September 26.Online bidding on all other auction artwork and Dream Auction items closes at 9:00 p.m. on Saturday, September 26.
Other highlights of the weekend include the Dream Auction, featuring great value gift packages from local businesses and our Discovery sale, showcasing a wide selection of highly affordable pottery and matted works, books, art supplies and equipment. This sale will be open throughout the preview week. No cash accepted – credit and debit cards only.
Bidding is all online. Organizers highly recommended patrons bring along mobile devices for bidding while in the school (free wifi will be available) or for taking photos of works and their item numbers so patrons can bid when back at home. A pen and pad also works well to record the item numbers of favourites and bid later from home.
