FINE ART APPRAISALS
Arthur T. Garrity of Hingham, a professional auctioneer and fine art appraiser, offers verbal appraisals at our Gallery. Etchings, prints or original oil or watercolor paintings may be submitted for review for a
small fee: $15 per one appraisal, $25 for two appraisals, $33 for three
appraisals. The proceeds are donated to local non-profit organizations.
Hours for these appraisals are from 10:00 AM to 3:00 PM, usually every
other month on a Saturday. There is a limit of three items per person
per visit. We try to make appointments for people in order to avoid long
PORTRAIT & FIGURE SKETCHING FROM LIFE
Series of live painting sessions with local artists which involve portrait and figure sketching for public take place approximately every other month, always on a Saturday from 11am to 2pm. Visitors are encouraged to chat with the artists, view the exhibited work, and pose for a quick sketch or painting, with an option, but no obligation, to purchase the result. The cost of the work starts at $100. Sketches are done in pencil, watercolor or oil paint.
Painters Who Love to Paint, “PAINT THE SQUARE" !
New England artists participate in “Paint the Square” in Hingham, a two-day "plein-air" painting experience. Each artist paints impressions of the Hingham Square, and can paint up to two pieces that are auctioned at a silent auction held on a Saturday evening at our Gallery.
SMALL PAINTING SHOW
Over 30 regional painters participate in our popular “Small Painting Show", always around Christmas time. Each invited artist submits up to two small paintings of local scenes, landscapes and still-lives no larger than11 inches by 14 inches. There is always up to 100 to choose from. Our goal is to offer "affordable" gifts for the holidays.
LECTURE SERIES for art investors/collectors
Beginning and seasoned art collectors / investors are invited to the series of yearlong lectures. Our first lecture "The Beginning Collector / Collection Development" was held on Saturday, November 22, 2003. We talked about how to identify and choose what makes a good investment, what types of artwork are increasing in value, and how to successfully develop an art collection based on individuals taste or theme. This lecture was conducted at our Gallery by Hingham resident Arthur T. Garrity Jr., a professional auctioneer and fine art appraiser, know nationally for his historical art expertise and appraisal work.
We are also interested in hearing from you concerning activities that the Gallery might become engaged. In an effort to keep fine art in the front of the public's eye, new ideas and approaches are helpful.
