Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What is a sealed bid auction and how does it work?

A: Paintings will be listed with a reserve bid, the minimum accepted bid. When you find a painting that speaks to you, you can place a private, sealed bid on that painting. Bids will be accepted from now until 11:59 pm on June 30, 2018. Winning bidders will be contacted the following week.

Q: What else should I know about this event?

A: The sale of the paintings is being done as a fundraiser for the Sturgeon Lake Sailing Club, Sturgeon Point Golf Club, and Sturgeon Point Union Church. For every painting sold at the reserve price $100 will go to the three benefiting organizations, proceeds beyond the reserve price will also go to the three organizations.

Each painting sold comes with a book including many of the paintings in the cottages collection.

Q: I fell in love with a painting, how do I place a bid?

A: If you've found a painting that you would like to place a bid on, you can use our form below. We will also be accepting bids during the opening night party June 30 from 6pm to midnight as part of Fenelon Falls Midnight Madness. Please include the painting name or code from the painting slideshow, and ensure that your bid meets the minimum listed reserve bid. The winning bidders will be contacted the following week via the contact information included with their bid.
