Annual Meeting - State of the Arts: The Art & Antiques Market - Where Are We Now?
Wednesday, May 13, 2020, 6:00 PM - 8:15 PM EST
Category: Events

In the not so distant past, a home filled with antiques was synonymous with refined taste; the signifier of an educated collector. Today, the baton has not passed to the next generation, and children are “opting-out” of becoming custodians of their parent’s treasures. Even the red-hot art market had grown just a little tepid, and the heavenly prices paid by Chinese collectors have (mostly) come back down to earth.  What’s happening?

Reid Dunavant, SVP for Doyle Auctioneers & Appraisers, and contributor to PBS’ Antiques Roadshow, will provide an industry insider’s view of the state of art market today.  Stories from around the auction block will shed light on financial and estate planning considerations for any clients who are downsizing, inheriting, or divesting in the current auction market.  The auction industry is the largest contributor of pricing data today, where the sheer volume of daily transactions in every collecting category occurs with the most frequency, both online and on the auction floor.  Mr. Dunavant will discuss the stable sectors, the global influences, the winners, and the losers that make up the state of the arts today.  Approved for 1 hour CE credit.
