1. Discovery: data disclosure from the seller to BFA
2. BFA research: market analysis and estimation development
3. Initial consultation: sharing of the assessment with the seller/nonprofit

To list artwork on the AUCTION a lister must be a 501c3 grassroots organization.

This section of the BFA site is exclusively nonprofit curated. Donors for the AUCTION can contact the nonprofit directly FEATURED NONPROFITS to discuss collaboration potential.

Bond Fine Art will put a placeholder graphic where your organization’s logo picture would go within your auction listing pages, until you upload one. You can upload your logo by clicking on your username at the top right cover of the auction website, when click “Upload” on the right side of your profile page.

The nonprofit holds donated artwork unless it needs to ship for special service work or auction house submission.

In general, meaningful transaction artwork stays with the owner (seller donor, nonprofit, artist or gallery sponsor) until a sale has occurred unless shipment for special services or to an auction house is required.

It is the owner’s responsibility to have ‘wall to wall’ insurance coverage for valuable artwork.

BFA seldom, if ever, holds or ships artwork and does not carry insurance coverage.

The FAQ section is routinely updated. If there is a question the answer to which would be of general benefit, please CONTACT and it will be added.
