We get asked quite frequently to appraise artwork, or give a value of a piece that was discovered in an attic, a collection inherited from a loved one, or a rare find from an estate sale. Unfortunately we only have experience in determining the value of artwork by living artists that we currently represent, or have worked with in the past. If you would like to determine the value of a piece of artwork, here are some resources to check out.
A comprehensive site offering the latest news on the events, trends, and people that shape the global art market.

The Local Pawn Shop/Antique Store/Auction House
Pawn Shops and Antique stores often have artwork for sale and might know more about particular artists from the area. Or they might just have a running average for what artwork sells for in their shop. This is also your best bet if you’d like to get rid of the piece quickly (but don’t expect to get much for the piece of artwork). Here are some area shops that might be able to help you out:
Keystone Auctioneers – (570) 329-1005
Roan Auctions – (570) 494-0170
Nolan Auctions – (570) 326-7036
