The American Saddlebred Museum is accepting consignments to be considered for inclusion in the 2012 Equine Art, Antique and Rare Book Auction. The auction will be held on Saturday, July 14th at the Museum’s Showplace for Saddlebreds in conjunction with the Lexington Junior League Horse Show. Deadline for submission of consignments is March 26, 2012.

The auction is open to artwork in any medium, as well as rare books, unique antiques and historic artifacts. If you buy, sell, collect or create paintings, pastels, sculpture, charcoals, prints, carvings, etchings, antiques, rare books or historic artifacts, you’ll want to take note of this sales/marketing opportunity.

In addition to Saddlebreds, coaching, Standardbred, Morgan, Draft, Hackney, Thoroughbred and hunting and jumping themes have become popular at the venue. Other items of interest are rare books, collectibles, equine-themed painted furniture, jewelry and historic artifacts and photographs.
