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!


All artwork will be available for online bidding starting Monday May 12th at 12:00 PM EST. Online bidding will be open until Thursday May 15th at 3:00 PM EST. At that time, the highest online bids will be entered onto bid sheets at the gallery and will serve as the opening bid amount for the silent auction. Bidding at the gallery will start at 6pm on May 15th and end promptly at 8pm. If the Reserve price is met on an auction lot, it will be sold to the highest bidder. If the Reserve (or opening bid) is not met, the piece will be placed back online for one additional week of bidding.

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. Download the concierge Bid Form.


You must register for a Bider 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 December 1st, which will allow you to bid in-person only. In both cases, registration is free.
