The American Folk Art Museum is presenting an extensive Educational Series to enhance the visitor’s perception and enjoyment of the objects on view at The American Antiques Show. The Educational Series is offered to the public as an extension of the museum’s mission to spread the knowledge and appreciation of folk art. Attendees will learn firsthand from museum experts about material displayed by the top dealers in their field. Tickets for all programs can be purchased here.

  FRIDAY, JANUARY 21
Looking Without Labels: The Slippery Slope of Categories
Panel Discussion
10–11 AM at TAAS

Free; open to the public

Panelists: Chuck Close, artist; Maria Ann Conelli, executive director, American Folk Art Museum; Tim Hill, owner, Hill Gallery; Beverly Schreiber Jacoby, president, BSJ Fine Art; Leigh Keno, president, Keno Auctions; Dorothy Lichtenstein, president, Roy Lichtenstein Foundation; Alberto Magnan and Dara Metz, co-owners, Magnan Metz

Moderator: Elizabeth E. Jacoby, vice president, BSJ Fine Art

Why does the way we describe an object have such an effect on how we perceive its significance, its collectability, or its value? By questioning traditions—or, more casually, habits of descriptive terminology—can we empower the object to see things with fresh eyes?

The panelists will discuss these questions across various media and styles to help collectors gain a fuller understanding of the way semantics and nuances can dramatically impact the way we appreciate or dismiss works of art.
