The Art Bargain Sale and Silent Auction allows all of the 500 member artists to exhibit and sell their artworks unframed providing art lovers the opportunity to purchase an established artist's work at a very competitive price.

The Art Bargain Sale rules involve a special Silent Auction where the artist will place a reserve price on the artwork and over a 30 minute period people can bid by placing their higher bid on the work.  At the end of the 30 minute period the highest bidder will be able to purchase the work and take it home.  

The first Art Bargain Sale and Silent Auction was held in 1947 at the Victorian Artists' Society..  

Eileen Mackley AM, President of the Victorian Artists' Society said traditionally there has been a large attendance at the opening night as art buyers looked to maximise their opportunities whilst the full range of artworks are available.
