Each year, the FAE selects a destination city and a diverse group of presenters on topics that provide both antiques, furnishings and decorative arts and fine art appraisers with learning opportunities and professional development credits. The seminar is open to ISA, AAA and ASA appraisers and professionals, as well as individuals interested in the field of topics presented. The registration fee is $395 for both days or $200 for one day. To register, visit the seminar page at foundationforappraisaleducation.org.
This year's theme – 300 Years of Southern Style – is designed to deepen knowledge of Southern decorative and fine arts, furnishings and antiques. Programs will cover topics ranging from French wallpaper trends in early Southern homes to the trends in Southern art from Clementine Hunter to Blue Dog to the Contemporary art scene. Seminars will also feature a talk on the best practices to strengthen one's business and the importance of engagement agreements.
To raise funds for scholarships the FAE also holds an annual benefit auction at John Moran Auctioneers of Los Angeles. The Foundation is currently accepting donations of quality items (valued at $500 or more) for next year's FAE fundraising auction. If you have an item you would like to donate, please contact our Fundraising Coordinator, Wendy Gerdau, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
FAE accepts memorials and gifts from groups and individuals, as well as corporate donations and sponsorships. The group is headquartered at 225 West Wacker Drive, Suite 650, Chicago, IL. To learn more, please visit www.foundationforappraisaleducation.org.
