2023-2024 Lecture Series

2023-2024 Lecture Series

The Appraisers Association is committed to ongoing education for appraisers and arts professionals and each season organizes a six-part slide lecture series in New York City, given by specialists in the fine and decorative arts and focusing on specific areas in depth. Within the context of the talk, the expert provides historical background, an overview of the field, establishes current values and market trends, addresses problems of copies and forgeries and considers a variety of additional relevant issues. A reception with refreshments will follow the lecture that will be in the historic National Arts Club, a National Landmark building and the former home of Governor Samuel Tilden.
