Art and antiques to benefit Crocker

By From page B13 | October 25, 2013

Since 1971, the Art and Antiques Show and Sale has been a local treasure where visitors can find collector items, from vintage jewelry to antique furniture and more, while supporting the exhibition and education programs of the Crocker Art Museum. Regional and national dealers will showcase one-of-a-kind wares and exceptional heirlooms at this year’s event on Friday through Sunday, Oct. 25 – 27 at the Scottish Rite Center, H Street and Carlson Drive in Sacramento.

Bringing together a broad array of top-notch collectors and vendors, the event offers shoppers the unique experience to interact and consult with experts as they browse through antiques.

Experienced specialists will also be on hand to answer appraisal and conservation questions. A silent auction and benefit drawing will run the entire weekend, and Ambrosia Café will make lunch available for purchase.

Run entirely by volunteers from the Art Service Group, an all-volunteer organization formed in 1963 to support the Crocker, will donate all the proceeds from the sale to the museum.

The Art and Antique Show and Sale will take place Oct. 25 and 26 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and on Oct. 27 from 10 a.m. to 4.

Parking is free of charge. General admission is $8.
