FAU's Dorothy F. Schmidt College of Arts and Letters will host “On the Road: Sotheby’s Appraisal Day at FAU” on Saturday, March 1, from 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. in the Live Oak Pavilion, FAU Student Union, 777 Glades Road, Boca Raton campus.
International art experts Tom Denzler, Cynthia Volk, and Jan Willem van Haaren of Sotheby’s New York will be on hand to provide verbal appraisals of estimated value for American and European paintings, drawings, sculpture, prints, Asian items, decorative arts and European furniture. Noted Florida art, antique, and jewelry experts Russ Kodner, Craig Patrick, and Kevin Taylor of Kodner Galleries in Dania Beach; Albert Levy of A.B. Levy’s in Palm Beach; and Rico Baca of Palm Beach Modern Auctions in West Palm Beach will be available for verbal appraisals of estimated value for art, American folk art, antiques, decorative arts, jewelry, and vintage items.
“This is an exciting opportunity for anyone interested in finding out the value of a piece of art, jewelry or furniture they may have inherited or purchased,” said David Miller, a member of FAU’s Dorothy F. Schmidt College of Arts and Letters Advisory Board, and appraisal expert. “It is rare for such an occasion to meet with an esteemed Sotheby’s authority. They and our renowned Florida-based specialists have generously offered their time and expertise for a great cause— supporting student scholarships at FAU. They are also offering their services at a considerable discount.”
All appraisals are verbal only, and are $45 per item. Photographs of larger pieces of furniture are acceptable in place of having the item on site at FAU. All proceeds from the event will benefit the FAU student scholarship fund.
