ELAH Virtual Art Auction

The ELAH Virtual Art Auction event will be held on Instagram on December 3rd (starting at 10 a.m.) and December 4th (ending at 10 p.m.)! 

Here are the Details:

-You may submit up to three (3) pieces. 

-Pieces that sell best would probably be no more than $175 and no less than $10. 

-ELAH will take a 30% commission on all artwork sold. So if your piece ends with a bid of $100, you will receive $70 and ELAH $30. 

-You must create and decide on your artwork(s) starting bid! 

-You will be responsible for shipping out the artwork (please keep this in mind when choosing your artworks). If you would like 100% of the proceeds to come to ELAH, we can ship out the artwork!
