Refund Policy
Cancellation and Refund:

Tickets are typically non-refundable, with the following exceptions: if we canceled the event, there is an event change (artist, date, venue, painting) and for some emergencies.

Tickets may be transferred into another event with available seating as long as the start of the event is more than 48 hours away. 

If you cancel/transfer within 48 hours of the start of an event, you incur a late cancellation fee.

If you’re unable to attend this event for any reason, we suggest you send a friend in your place (but we really hope to see you there!). The name on the ticket doesn't need to be changed, the guest attending will just need to give the name on the ticket at check in and will be all set to participate!

Emergencies:

We do understand that life can make things really difficult. We will make some exceptions to the above cancellation period for National Weather Service-issued weather advisories or medical emergencies. We do ask for as much notice as you can manage in these situations.
