Certified Appraiser, Jennifer Stoots
Friday 6:30-8:30pm Lecture
Saturday 12:30-5:30pm Private Consultation & Market Analysis

$10 general public | $5 PCNW Members | Students FREE with ID and RSVP

The Antiques Road Show has imparted appraisers with an air of omniscience. The reality behind valuing artwork and collectibles is a far more involved process that includes market research, analysis and, often, problem solving. Certified photography appraiser Jennifer Stoots will pull back the curtain on the art of appraising in a discussion of the different types of appraisals and what they’re used for, how a single artwork can have multiple values depending on the purpose of the valuation, and what the IRS is looking for.

Private consultations & market analysis report (up to 3 photographs) SESSIONS:  Saturday April 9, 2016*
TIME:           30 min. increments, scheduled between 12:30 & 5:30 p.m.
COST:          $150 (Cost covers the 1hr of research & report writing plus the 30 minute private session on April 9.  This offering is at a reduced hourly rate for PCNW.)

*Scheduling of the private consultation and your selection of photographers &/or photographs to be analyzed must be submitted to PCNW by Friday March 26, to allow ample time for research and preparation of market analysis report prior to the private session on April 9.

The Market Analysis report delivered during the private session will provide an overview of the market for the artist/photographer’s work in the marketplace and will include:

  • Recent realized auction prices for same or similar works you’ve chosen
  • Auction houses that have sold the photographs by the artist(s) in the past
  • Current retail pricing (if available)
  • List of photography and/or antique dealers that are currently selling same or similar material
  • General outline of commissions and fees to be expected when consigning artwork for resale

The resulting report and private session will be a general market assessment for same or similar work by the photographers you select prior to the session.  (The report delivered and discussed will not be an appraisal, which also involves inspection of the artwork, market research for the specific piece(s) in a collection, value assessment for a specific purposes (e.g., insurance or donation), and preparation of an appraisal report.  To read more, please visit here.)
