Dear Clients, Friends and Fans of Susan Seddon Boulet,
We request anyone wishing to make an offer read all of the information below. We understand that these paragraphs of terms and conditions can be dry and boring, but we would like to insure those making offers completely understand the process by which we have sold Susan's art online since 2000. A good understanding of the process will eliminate any potential misunderstandings.
A Background On These Pieces (October 2023)
Turning Point has been the principal gallery representing and selling original works by Susan Seddon Boulet since 1993. We continue to work diligently and cooperatively with her family, friends and estate to further enhance and honor Susan's legacy. This is Turning Point's 28th annual sale of original work by Susan Seddon Boulet and the 24th held worldwide in an auction format over the internet.
The original works in this sale come from collections in the US.
All of the pieces have been re-matted using acid-free mats and or fillets, separators and backings; all of the glass has been replaced with or Museum, conservation Tru-Vue UV protective glass or conservation clear Tru-Vue UV protective glass. All of the work has been re-framed as noted.
Some of the works shown may have the notation "- Title unknown" after the title given. The reason... many of the titles of Susan's early works, (1970 - 1980), are unknown. As a way to facilitate identification and historical records on the many individual unknown titles, we, after careful thought, have given each piece a title followed by the notation "- Title unknown". Those pieces without this notation were titled by Susan.
