Out of the Attic: Art & Appraisal Days @ Trinity

If you’ve been waiting for the Antiques Roadshow to come to Buffalo, then you might be interested in the “local version” that is scheduled to take place at Trinity Church on October 24th (Friday) & 25th (Saturday). On these days, appraisal experts will be able to give you some verbal guidance when it comes to what your treasures are worth. Bring your textiles, jewelry, art, rugs, pottery, porcelain and glass… and be sure to leave your antique firearms and weapons behind because there will be no experts there to value their worth. 

If you want to get in to the action a tad early, then consider attending the “beat-the-crowd party” on Friday from 6:30 – 9PM. The exclusive pre-party will feature wine and hors d’oeuvres, along with local dealers who will appraise your personal treasures*. 

Saturday will also feature free lectures: 

12-1PM – “Alexander Levy in Buffalo” Speakers: Scott Propeak, Chief Curator Burchfield Penny Art Center and Dr. Albert Michaels, Collector

2-3PM – “So you want to be an art collector?”  Speaker: Anna Kaplan, Director of BT&C Gallery

General admission: The doors open at 10AM on Saturday. Tickets are $20 and include up to 3 appraisals.  Additional appraisals will be $5 per item.  Tickets will be sold up until 3PM with the doors closing at 4PM. Docent tours of Trinity’s famous windows are scheduled at 11AM, 1 PM and 3PM.

*Pre-party tickets are $30 per person/$40 couple and include up to 3 appraisals; additional appraisals will be $5 per item. There will also be a silent art auction from 6:30-8:30. 

A special “Soup Café” will be open on Saturday.  Tickets are available at Trinity Church, 371 Delaware Avenue, Buffalo, NY 14202 and will be available at the door both Friday and Saturday.
