Participants will meet at the de Young for a private tour of the collection currently on exhibition. Once finished, we will go to the cafÉ for a no-host lunch and lecture on glass: short history, primary glass types, methodologies, markets and values, by fellow appraiser, art advisor, and expert on contemporary glass, MicaËla van Zwoll.

Finally, participants will have the exclusive opportunity to visit the Saxe residence to view more of the private collection.

Over the last two decades, George and Dorothy Saxe of Menlo Park 
and San Francisco have formed one of the premiercollections of contemporary craft in the United States. The Saxe Collection, containing works in glass, ceramic, wood, fiber, and metal, is distinguished by both its high quality and its depth, with many major artists represented by works from different periods in their careers. Prominent Bay Area and West Coast artists represented include Robert Arneson, Dale Chihuly, Viola Frey, Sam Maloof, Manuel Neri, Peter Voulkos, and
Beatrice Wood.
