Bid by Proxy

2020 Small Works, Great Wonders Proxy Bidding Information and Rules of Sale

The National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum offers proxy bidding for those unable to attend the Small Works, Great Wonders Art Sale on Friday, November 13, 2020, but would like to make a purchase.

Each year we assist several individuals with proxy bidding. If you wish to bid on one piece, list that artwork and the pertinent information on the proxy form. If you decide to bid on two or more pieces of art, list all items on the proxy form. In this case, you must indicate whether you want both, or if you get #1 that you do not want #2, and so forth.

For instance, if you want to rank the items:

  1. Wash Day           John Moyers             $Price
  2. Crow Knows      Bert Seabourn           $Price

IT IS UNDERSTOOD THAT IF MORE THAN ONE ARTWORK IS LISTED AND YOU ARE DRAWN ON ALL, YOU ARE OBLIGATED TO PURCHASE ALL ARTWORKS UNLESS YOU OTHERWISE INSTRUCT IN WRITING. IT IS ALSO UNDERSTOOD IF YOU ARE BIDDING ON SCULPTURE WITH ADDITIONAL CASTINGS AND NOT DRAWN FOR THE PIECE ON DISPLAY, YOU ARE OBLIGATED TO PURCHASE THE ADDITIONAL CASTING UNLESS YOU OTHERWISE INSTRUCT IN WRITING.

You may fax your proxy form to Trent Riley at (405) 478-4714 or email to triley@nationalcowboymuseum.org. A printable proxy form is available here. You may also submit a proxy form by visiting nationalcowboymuseum.org/proxybid. Bids must be submitted by 7:00 p.m. on November 13, 2020.
