ASA reports on the Webinar
RESTON, VA (November #, 2014) – The American Society of Appraisers (ASA) is pleased to announce the hosting of an upcoming webinar titled WEBPP113-Americana Market (including Folk Art): Turning the Page on Values to air on Friday, December 12, 2014 from 1:00-3:00pm ET.

The financial crisis of 2007-2008 is considered by many economists to have been the worst financial crisis since the Great Depression of the 1930’s. This economic downturn had a direct impact on Antiques and Decorative Arts. Join Susan Golashovsky, ASA, a Doylestown appraiser as she speaks about the Americana market then and now.

This webinar will focus on looking at both pre-and post-crash sales numbers and provenance information plus quotes and sources for current market conditions. Participants will examine the overall market plus specific objects, and will cover over thirty object examples, which fall within the broad spectrum of Americana--everything from furniture to folk art watercolors. Upon completion of this webinar, participants will be able to develop a better value narrative through a deeper understanding of the market changes and recognition of how databases can be deceiving.

This course is for all personal property appraisers who wish to broaden their knowledge and scholarly skill sets in the area of personal property.

The instructor of this course, Susan Golashovsky, ASA, holds four personal property specialties and is one of only a handful of ASA appraisers with that distinction both nationally and internationally. She currently serves as ASA’s International Secretary/Treasurer of the Boards of Governors. Ms. Golashovsky is a former member of Doylestown, PA Toastmasters; past Vice President of Bucks County Antiques Dealer’s Association; was schooled in appraisal theory at George Washington University and attended Winterthur Museum’s Winter Institute to study American Material Culture.

There are two continuing education (CE) credits offered for this course. Tuition is $79 for members and $99 for non-members. ISA and AAA members are eligible for a discounted ASA member rate by using campaign code ASAWEBPP113$ when registering!!
