  • All bidding will be done using mobile devices, so come fully charged and make sure to include your cell phone number when buying tickets & registering to bid. Should you need assistance, we will have volunteers available to answer questions and facilitate bidding.
  • With mobile bidding through GiveSmart, you will receive a text message to begin bidding. There is no need to download an app.

You can place bids on the piece or pieces that you are interested in and you will receive a text message only when you have been outbid prompting you to up your bid. Have to have a work? You can buy a work outright at Retail + 20% at any time during the evening (this opportunity is available to our VIPs first starting at 6:00pm) Or you can like your favorite items and watch them without the fear of commitment and then swoop in with the winning bid at just the right moment.

Is My Artwork Purchase Tax Deductible?
Yes, but only the amount paid above the fair market value of the artwork noted on your receipt can be considered a charitable donation, so bid up those artworks. It's for a worthy cause after all.

 

Do I Have to be Present to Win?
NO, you do not have to be present to win. In fact, that's one of the best things about mobile bidding. You can keep actively bidding while offsite, or "set it and forget it" by setting a maximum bid amount. You will be notified via text message if you are the winning bidder and your credit card on file will be charged. Please plan to pick up your artwork at the Auction Venue on Sunday, February 23 between noon and 5pm. If you live out of state, we will arrange shipping with you.

And if you are unable to join us on Saturday night, you can still participate in the Auction by bidding online. All you need to do is register through this website. Look for the Register button in the top right of the web page. And you will be able to bid on works during the Auction.

Disclaimer: All artworks are sold as-is and all sales are final.

 

Parking + Ride Share + Public Transit

  • The venue's preferred parking deck is located at 150 Carnegie Way, Atlanta GA, 30303. Credit cards are accepted. There are also numerous paid parking lots in the immediate area some of which accept credit cards, others only cash.
  • We encourage you to use an alternative form of transportation such as ride share services from Lyft or Uber. The address for ride share drop off location is 157 Carnegie Way. This will drop you off at the entrance to the event.
  • The event venue is also located very near MARTA. Exit at the Peachtree Center Station, the venue is a short, one block walk to the corner of Carnegie Way and Ellis St. And the Atlanta Streetcar runs immediately adjacent to the venue.

 

Mobility Accommodations
The party is accessed via an escalator. Should you need use of the venue's elevator, please inform the security officer at the Auction entrance at Carnegie Way and he/she will have Southern Exchange staff meet you at the elevator. The elevator is original to the building and requires operation by venue staff.

 

How Do I Get the Work Home?

Once paid for, you may hand-carry your artwork out of the building. We will have packing assistance on site. You will be asked to show proof of purchase prior to exiting the event venue.


You may return to 200 Peachtree St on Sunday, February 23 between noon and 5pm to pick-up your artwork. We will have packing assistance on site. Please enter through the Carnegie Way street level entrance.


Should you need assistance with the delivery and/or installation of your artwork. We will have shipping assistance on site. Please note that delivery and installation services may require an additional fee to be negotiated directly with the shipper.
The cost of shipping work from the Art Papers office is not included in the sale price and will be billed separately.


Parking for Artwork Pick up


It will be necessary to park your automobile for artwork pick up. The parking deck at 150 Carnegie Way is the closest deck. If you have multiple works to carry out or oversized work, we will have volunteers to assist you with transporting your work. We will ask you to bring your car around to the event entrance at 157 Carnegie Way for easy loading. Please be sure to pull up closer to the loading dock because the streetcar makes a tight turn at the corner of the venue.
