11 July, 2019 | Aspire Art Auctions recently announced the launch of a new platform, in addition to its four main Live auctions in the year, titled Online&Live Curated Gallery Auctions.
Online&Live Curated Gallery Auctions will comprise a combined online and live auction four times a year, taking place between Aspire’s Johannesburg or Cape Town galleries. The sales will open one week prior to the live auction event where the bidding will commence online.
Auction lots will also be on display and viewable at the corresponding Aspire gallery. To add to the ease of the process, absentee and telephone bidding functionality is also available.
“We have developed a platform that will make doing business with Aspire even more convenient and refined for our clients and will integrate the existing Timed Online technology with our established Live sales platform. This will provide our clients with a platform where they can bid in their preferred method, at their convenience, while maintaining our standards of quality and selectivity,” explains Ruarc Peffers, Aspire’s managing director.
The first sale to be themed under the Online&Live Curated Gallery Auctions concept will take place at Aspire’s Johannesburg gallery on 30 July 2019.
