Art for Tibet is a hybrid auction that combines an in-gallery silent auction with an online auction. You don't need to be at the gallery to support Tibet and bring home a fantastic work of art!


Online bidding will be open until Thursday May 15th at 12:00 PM EST. At that time, the online auction will freeze and bidding will resume in person at Tibet House at 6:00pm. The highest online bids will serve as the opening bid amount at the gallery. Bidding at the gallery will end promptly at 8pm. If the reserve price is met on an auction lot, it will be sold to the highest bidder that night. All unsold artwork, and artwork which does not receive any in-person bids at the gallery, will go back online for an additional bidding period which will run until Tuesday May 27th at 6:00 PM EST.

If you are bidding online and cannot be in New York to guarantee you are able to place your highest possible bid at the last moment, we do offer a free concierge bidding service so that you don't lose out on your favorite piece. If you would like to use this service, please download this form and return it us by email by May 15th, 2014 at 12:00pm EST.


You must register for a bidder ID number in order to place a bid. There are two ways to do this. You can register online, which will allow you to place online bids AND in-person bids, or you can register in person at the event on May 15th, which will allow you to bid in-person only. In both cases, registration is free.
