Each work carries an estimated market value obtained from sources that Projet HOPE believes to be reliable, but no representation or warranty as to be the actual resale value of any work being auctioned is made or implied. The estimated value is intended as a guide to assist you in your bidding.
All bids are per item as numbered & specified, unless otherwise announced by the auctioneer at the time of sale. If your bid is successful, you will be asked to pay for your purchase immediately.

In the event of any dispute between bidders, a missed bid, or in the event of doubt as to the validity of a bid, the auctioneer will have, at his discretion, the final authority either to determine the successful bidder or to re-offer and resell the work in dispute. If any dispute arises after the auction, the Project HOPE record of the auction proceedings shall be conclusive.
Purchasers may pick up works at anytime upon proof of payment prior to the conclusion of the auction evening. Projet HOPE is not responsible for acts and omissions of carriers or packers of purchases.

The idea of ARTSIDAwas founded in 2006 by founder, Chris Elliott who was looking for an opportunity to assist AIDS Community Care Montreal in further asserting their role in the HIV/AIDS community.
What began as a small fundraising effort to promote local artists and HIV/AIDS awareness soon took on more dynamic promotions when Joe Average, Tom Bianchi, Sharon Stone & Dr. Susan Aglukark Endorsements, artwork and support immediately followed amazing artists and humanitarians donated works immediately and without hesitation.
