1. You need to register as a bidder by sending an email to with the subject header “Silent Auction Bidder.” Include in the body of the email: your full name, address, and a phone number to reach you in case we have a question about your bid.
2. We will send a link to the Silent Auction bidders who sign up. You may share the link with others, but they must still register as a bidder before we can accept their bids. We also link from the NY Artists Unlimited home page to the Silent Auction page.
3. You can email a bid to us at and please include the Lot # and Item Name in your subject header. If yours is the high bid of the day, it will be posted with your initials as “high bidder.”
4. The daily bids will be posted as we receive them throughout the day, with a minimum of once every hour. Just remember that we cannot be online all the time during the day, and the first update of the day is 9:00 am and the last is 9:00 pm, so some bids will be delayed in getting posted. You can see if your bid was accepted and if your initials are listed as the “highest bidder.”

You are also cordially invited to the festival July 20-August 9. Contact or 212-242-6036.
