It is Art & Treasures Weekend

By Larissa Masny, Gallery Buzz Editor

treasuresIt is Art & Treasures weekend here at the Memorial Art Gallery! Art & Treasures is a fundraiser for the museum, sponsored by The Gallery Council.

Tonight is the Art & Treasures Preview Party. For $25, you can have the first opportunity to browse and buy all the donated art and treasures-antiques, artwork, jewelry, china, porcelain, silver, crystal, fine linens and small furniture items. As a party guest, you’ll also enjoy gourmet desserts, coffees and teas, served by Max at the Gallery. 7–9 pm tonight. For tickets, call 585-276-8910.

Friday & Saturday is the Art & Treasures Sale, which features free admission. You’ll be able to stop by the Cutler Union building of the Memorial Art Gallery and see which items you’d like to buy. A win-win situation- all sales benefit the Memorial Art Gallery, and you’re home will have beautiful new items. Tomorrow 11 am-7:30 pm and Saturday, 9 am-2 pm. Free admission.

Similar to the very popular TV show, Antiques Road Show, we’ll have antique appraisers here to evaluate that mysterious old item Aunt Sally gave you years ago. And, you won’t have to be on TV! 11 am-1 pm Saturday. $25 for up to two items (cash or check only, payable at the event). Each appraiser can see 20 to 25 people. Numbers will be given out on a first-come basis.

Good luck treasure hunting!
