Dear bidders, followers, staff and patrons,
In accordance with the governor's statewide order prohibiting face-to-face business from 5:00 PM on March 25 onward, we are implementing the following precautions:
-Bidders who won lots in the March auction will still be allowed to pick up items from our front entryway. We ask that you call us ahead of time to let us know that you will be coming, so that we can have your items ready for you in the vestibule. If payment needs to be made, we ask that you leave your preferred payment method in the vestibule, so that one of our staff can retrieve it and process your payment with a minimum of face-to-face contact.
-Our shipping operations will continue throughout the shutdown, and we request that all bidders make arrangements to have their items shipped, if possible, to keep the number of people arriving at the gallery to a minimum.
-Our April auction will be held on the 24th and 25th as planned; however, baring any further developments bids will be accepted online, over the phone, and through absentee bidding only. No in-person preview or bidding will take place. We will continue to comply with all guidelines set by the state.
Thank you for your patience and continued patronage.
