Do I have to pay tax?

Tax will be applied to all works shipped within the state of California. Please consult your accountant if you have any additional questions about sales tax.
How will I receive my artwork?

Clients are welcome to collect their purchases from our headquarters in person after payment has been made. Alternatively, if you are not located nearby, Revolver Auctions has an extensive network of certified fine art packers and shippers that offer our clients very competitive prices. We are happy to refer our clients to them.

A key feature of Revolver Auctions is its integration with the operations of Revolver Gallery. This means that art buyers can arrange private purchases in addition to or in alternative to purchasing works through our auctions. Private purchases remove the guesswork element inherent in the auction format (eliminating concerns such as “Will I get outbid for this item?” and “Will other interested parties increase my final purchase price?”), and transactions happen privately at the pace with which the buyer, consigner, and gallery are comfortable.
