Appraisal Day for ‘Outsider Art’ at the Bruce Museum

More About Appraisal Day for ‘Outsider Art’ at the Bruce Museum

Appraisers from Rago Arts and Auction to offer complimentary evaluations to the public on Saturday, June 15, 10:00 am – 4:00 pm

Following a highly successful appraisal event for heirloom jewelry and other collectible accessories at the Bruce Museum in February, a team of expert appraisers from Rago Arts and Auction Center returns to the Bruce on Saturday, June 15, 10:00 am – 4:00 pm.

The search this time around is for paintings, prints, photographs and “outsider art,” as well as unusual curiosities such as scientific/botanical models and spiritual/mystical art and objects.

“While fine art evaluations are well understood, people may not be familiar with the term ‘outsider art,’” says Jennifer Pitman, Rago’s senior account manager for Connecticut and Westchester. The category generally refers to self-taught or naïve art makers who are unconnected with the mainstream art world or institutions and who create works of personal expression apart from any conventional practice or style.

“It’s a hot market, to be sure,” says Pitman.

The appraisals are open to Museum members and the public free of charge, though reservations are required. To make an appointment for an appraisal, contact Jennifer Pitman at 917-745-2730 or jenny@ragoarts.com. Rago will donate a portion of its commission on property consigned from the Appraisal Day event to the Bruce Museum
