Art Sales

ArtFair supplies art directly through its own stock. Additionally, partner galleries and individuals advertise their inventories through the ArtFair website. Individual merchants contacted through ArtFair provide their own order processing and customer service. The art for sale on ArtFair is priced excluding packing, shipping, customs charges and insurance costs. ArtFair is not responsible for international duties or taxes. All duties and taxes in relationship to your order are the responsibility or the purchaser. When an enquiry has been made, the seller will contact the enquirer to discuss any extra charges that may be payable. Buyers are requested to fully remove the art work from its packing and inspect it immediately upon receipt. Any complaints must be sent directly to the seller. Prepayment required via bank transfer. In the event of shipping damage, please save all packing materials and photograph the artwork at time of signature. Always report damage to the seller immediately via email.

Note that if frames are included, they are included solely as a courtesy and are sold as is. A buyer may not reject a transaction purely on the grounds of a damaged frame. All artwork sales are subject to prior sale. Items for sale can be withdrawn from sale at any time before payment is made. The merchant or ArtFair also reserves the right to cancel or refuse orders for items or services offered at an incorrect price on ArtFair.
