American Saddlebred Museum of Art Holds Antique and Rare Book Auction

The American Saddlebred Museum is making plans for its inaugural is scheduled during the Lexington Junior League Horse Show Saturday, July 17, 2004, at the Tattersalls Sales Pavilion. The Museum is not asking for donations, but rather for the consignment and sale of items of interest to the industry. The auction is open to artwork in any medium, as well as rare books, unique antiques and historic artifacts. The Museum will publish a four-color catalog for this sale.

During the last five years, the Museum has auctioned several works of art, most of which had a historic theme, and the response was overwhelming. This industry has never had an auction venue where artists, collectors and enthusiasts could go to purchase and sell Saddlebred artwork in all mediums. The goal of the Museum is to be a marketplace for the industry’s artists as well as a viable outlet for collectors who want or need to move a piece of art. The Museum also wants to present an opportunity to raise and promote artistic awareness within the industry.

If you need more information or would like to receive a consignment contract or a catalog, please contact Tolley Graves at the American Saddlebred Museum at 859-259-2746.
