There is nothing like the excitement of a good auction, especially a quality art auction, where the bidders can be as interesting as the art itself.

Plus, Tips For First Time Bidders:
Whether you are a first-time art buyer or a seasoned collector, the process of bidding in a live auction is somewhat of an art, itself. Bidding can also be compared to ordering a drink in a busy bar. The same rules apply: don’t be rude, loud or obnoxious. Stay calm and patient. Know your order beforehand and have payment ready, or in the auction’s case, know the lot you are going to bid on and how much you are willing to spend. Also, be clear about your intention to bid. Try not to stretch or wave your paddle at your husband across the room. Ultimately, you will be successful if you just use common sense.
