Shipping Artwork from the Conference

A commercial packing and shipping service will be on site after the auction on Saturday evening. GAS assumes no responsibility for the shipping of purchases or for those items not picked up immediately after the Auction, Goblet Grab, or Student Exhibition. Once you have made arrangements with a shipping vendor, GAS cannot, by shipping regulations, intervene on your behalf with the shipper. You must resolve any concerns regarding artwork damaged or lost during shipping by contacting the shipping vendor directly.

The Fine Print

GAS promises to handle all Auction, Goblet Grab, and Student Exhibition items with the utmost respect and care, and to update you on the status of your donation, but GAS, SeaGate Convention Centre, and the Park Inn are not responsible for breakage, theft, or loss.

Unsold works of art that are not reclaimed by their donor at the end of the Auction, Goblet Grab, or Student Exhibition events become the unrestricted property of GAS. GAS shall be entitled in our absolute discretion to exercise disposal of the work as we deem appropriate after this time.

All purchases are final and must be paid for and removed from the premises during the evening of the event. Purchased items that are not removed at the end of the Auction, Goblet Grab, and Student Exhibition events will be shipped at the purchaser’s expense.

No exchanges or refunds allowed.
