International Society of Appraisers Conference

I recently returned from Nashville, TN, where the annual conference of the International Society of Appraisers (ISA) was held this year.  It’s a wonderful learning experience every year. We heard from the IRS Art Advisory Panel Chair, Joe Bothwell; from Leigh Keno on Integrity in the Marketplace and from other great speakers. I was so fortunate and honored to speak to the group on Appraisers Working with Adjusters and Insurance Companies.

In addition to seminars on topics such as Civil War Memorabilia, Folk Art, Southern Pottery, Period Furniture and more, we were able to take in the Heart of Country antiques show, which was held at the same conference center. It’s always great for appraisers to attend shows to get a handle on the market. We can talk with dealers and find out what’s happening in their markets back home and see for ourselves what the public is buying and at what price.

The ISA always does a wonderful job of setting up specialty tours for our group. This year we went to the Hermitage, Belle Meade Plantation and Cheekwood Mansion. While the public can tour these places, the ISA arranges for our group to go “behind the glass” and get close up looks at the art and antiques on display.  We are always treated so kindly by the staff who provide the information for us on the tours.

Now it’s time for me to get back to the regular daily work of appraisal — inspecting art and antiques and preparing reports for my clients.
