Collector items to benefit Crocker

By From page B8 | October 26, 2012

SACRAMENTO — The Crocker Art Museum will hold its annual Art and Antiques Show and Sale starting Friday, Oct, 26 to Sunday, Oct. 28.

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.

Forty-five regional and national dealers will showcase one-of-a-kind wares and exceptional heirlooms at this year’s show.

“This show brings together a broad array of top-notch collectors and experts,” said Chip O’Neill of the Art Service Group, an all-volunteer organization formed in 1963 to support the Crocker Art Museum. “It’s a very different experience than buying antiques online. If you don’t see what you’re looking for, the dealer will often be able to help you find it.”

Experienced specialists will 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, proceeds from the sale will benefit the Crocker Art Museum.

The show will take place from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, and on Sunday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Scottish Rite Center, at H Street and Carlson Drive, across from the main entrance to California State University, Sacramento.

Parking is free of charge. General admission is $7.
