Behind the Scenes at Antiques Roadshow in Boston

The beloved PBS television series Antiques Roadshow premiered in 1995 in Boston, and this June the show returned to its home city.

Skinner appraisers have been part of the show from the beginning, and for the June 9 filming, eleven antiques and fine art appraisers from Skinner shared their expertise with Boston area hopefuls who waited in line for hours for the possibility of a few minutes of fame and fortune.

Steel, Stones, and Smoke: Art Appraisers Tour Art Basel Miami Beach

Last week, I had the opportunity to travel to Florida for one of the year’s most spectacular art shows: Art Basel Miami Beach. I spent the first part of the trip with fellow art appraiser Kathy Wong, and then my husband and 7-year-old son joined me as traveling companions. In addition to spotting famous and emerging artists (Julian Schnabel, Orlan, the controversial Mr. Brainwash, and Marina Abramovic, to name a few), we snapped photos of many pieces of art that struck us as beautiful, original, shocking, or thought-provoking. You can view the full gallery on the American & European Works of Art Facebook page.
