The Journal of Advanced Appraisal Studies is the leading scholarly publication in the fine art and antiques appraisal community. I'm very pleased to have an article I wrote included for publication in the 2016 edition of the Journal forthcoming later this month.
Titled "An Introduction to Appraising Mid-Century Modern Furniture," it is written for a target audience of professional appraisers unfamiliar with Mid-Century Modern and 20th Century Design with the aim of providing them with a useful guide to help determine whether they have competency to complete an appraisal assignment on their own or whether they should consult with a Mid-Century Modern specialist such as myself.
This week I had the opportunity to visit the excellent exhibition "Pathmakers: Women in Art, Craft, and Design, Midcentury and Today" at the Nation Museum of Women in the Arts, which closes today. Organized and originally installed at the Museum of Arts and Design in New York City, the exhibition was curated by Jennifer Scanlan and Ezra Shales.
The museum described the exhibition as presenting "dynamic women designers and artists from the mid-20th century and today making groundbreaking commercial and industrial designs, maintaining craft traditions, and incorporating new aesthetics into fine art.
