A Multidisciplinary Series

One of the most challenging aspects of appraising a damaged artwork for the independent appraiser is establishing the loss of value without the benefit of another colleague to act as your sounding board. This series will serve as an open forum for you to make sure you’ve covered all your bases when defending your argument for loss.

Hosted by Jennifer Garland Ross, AAA, and Emily Thompson, AAA, each afternoon will focus on one specific period and medium, with a special guest appraiser working in that discipline. Each afternoon will start with a visit to a conservator’s studio to see some of the typical damages that come through their doors and hear their considerations and processes for conservation. Then the group will return to the offices of the Appraisers Association to discuss various case studies and the different approaches to valuation that an appraiser must deliberate before finalizing a report. Send us your case studies before the date so we can have relevant and real-time discussion. We will treat everything with the utmost discretion.

Attendees may register either for the series of three, or for one session.
