This year’s annual International Society of Appraisers (ISA) conference was held in Fort Worth, Texas, from April 15-18, and was a resounding success. After a few whirlwind days visiting museums and viewing esteemed collections, Susan had the opportunity to speak on a panel alongside Josefa Gonzalez Mariscal on the topic of collecting international art in a global market. Susan’s talk was an excellent opportunity to share knowledge about the demands and intricacies of this particular sector, covering a range of topics including how to deal with exchange rates to cultural property designations and art repatriation. During the closing reception of the four day conference, Susan was presented with the Special Merit Award by her colleagues in the ISA in recognition of her outstanding leadership skills and commitment to advancing the field of appraisals.
Susan is excited to continue sharing her knowledge and is looking forward to teaching the Asian Art III: Foundation Course in Asian Ceramics for Appraisers which will be offered in San Francisco from August 3-5, 2016. The two day course will provide an overview of Asian ceramics with a particular focus on Chinese works of art, addressing pertinent information about the appraisal and valuation of this in-demand market.
