Welcome to the Artlurker Online Silent Auction, an experimental online variation on the theme of the silent variation of the classic English auction. Each day this week (Monday through Friday) we will be auctioning off a work by a different Miami based artist. A special lot is reserved for a bonus auction on Saturday.
To participate, simply enter your email for our eyes only in the comments section and leave a comment detailing the amount you wish to bid. At the end of the auction, the highest, most recent bidder wins. Serious bids only please.
The comments box will automatically approve your comments facilitating smooth bidding.
Each comment will have a time signature that will decide the winner.
Today’s lot will close at 8pm Central Time
(our server is in Texas – please refer to time signature on comment to be sure your bid is valid)
This being the first auction we are going to experiment with closing times. 8pm was conceived so bidders will have a comfortable amount of time to return home from work and place bids before the lot is closed. Suggestions regarding these times are welcome.
Please note that each lot will have a suggested opening bid and that we are trying to raise money to ensure the upkeep of the site. Thanks to the artists for donating their beautiful works and thanks in advance to our readers for their support. A PDF detailing the week’s lots will soon be available to download. Please check back regularly.
All lots come with free local delivery within one business day of payment. Payments can be made by mailing in a check to our offices at 8550 NE 4th Ave., Miami FL 33138 or by depositing funds into our PayPal account, mail at artlurker dot com.
