Buyer Be There
We've been known to marathon reality shows like Storage Wars, Pawn Stars, and American Pickers because it's fascinating to see what people are willing to spend big money on: Hot Wheels wrapped in plastic, golf clubs, and weird old swords. It's more fascinating yet when these bidders hawkishly home in on items, dollar signs in their eyes, because they already know how much moolah that random Felix The Cat knick-knack is worth.
For Antiques Roadshow art appraiser Alasdair Nichol, there's a little more nuance involved. During his free talk, "Adventures in the Arts Market," he'll impart tales from his experiences at the PBS standby and discuss his approach to appraising artwork in the current market. Pick up a few pro tips at Phoenix Art Museum, 1625 North Central Avenue, at 7 p.m. Wednesday, March 20.
