The Sales Process
The artist will likely be a part of the sales process and often sales leads are generated by artists and their gallerists. If there are two similar bidding parties, the artist and/or gallery may well be consulted as to which collection would best benefit the artist's interests. Ultimately, the decision will be made by APT as the organization must protect the mutuality of the program and ensure that the other artists in the trust see the greatest return from the sale. It is our goal to place work with public collections that are beneficial to the artist’s profile. It is important that APT is advised of any important events that might enhance the value and timing of a sale.
If APT proposes to sell more than a certain number of the artist's accepted artworks within a determined period of time, the artist will be notified.< Back to FAQS
