Fort Lauderdale Art Salons
Please join us for another extraordinary Venetian Arts Society (VAS) Art Salon Social as we explore the origins, provenance, and value of Art & Antiques. A portion of the proceeds from this exciting event will benefit The Stonewall National Museum & Archives of Fort Lauderdale.
VAS will present experts in the field or art and antiques from Decorative Arts & Fine Antiques, Frederick Fine Art, and Abingdon Auction Gallery to provide information and appraisals on your art and antiques. We invite our members and guests from the community to bring your items for a verbal auction market value. Participants will have an option to consign and sell at auction if their items meet their minimum consignment requirements.
