No tickets to ‘Roadshow’? The Barn has you covered

Friday, Nov. 10, 9 a.m.-noon, The Woman’s Art Cultural Center, 6980 Cambridge Ave., Mariemont

You never know what interesting – or valuable – artifacts may be tucked away in your attic. Want to find out?

Three representatives from Cowan’s Auctions will evaluate artwork and other items during the second “Art Roadshow at The Barn with Cowan’s Auction.”

Each session will take about 10 minutes. The Cowan specialists will examine each item, explain what they are looking for and how they determine the value. In many cases, they will be able to provide a history of the artist.

The specialists will then provide an estimated purchase price at auction. This value is helpful for estate planning, but cannot be used for insurance, tax or other legal purposes.

New to the event is an expert in jewelry and coins. In addition, acceptable items include paintings, vases, pottery, porcelain, folk art, small furniture, quilts, photographs, silver, glassware, small wood pieces, sketches, sculptures and photographs of furniture. Participants must be able to comfortably carry their items to the designated area in the room.

Cowan’s Auctions is providing the evaluations as a community service.

Items should be registered in advance. Fee is $25, with a limit of one item per person. Observing is free.

To register: 513-272-3700 or thebarn.cincyregister.com/cowan
