Kaminski Auctions Announces Spring Fine Art Weekend

The noted Massachusetts antiques and fine art auction house Kaminski Auctions, will launch a unique new event as part of their Spring Fine Art Weekend, March 31-April 1, in the Grand Ballroom at the Sheraton Colonial Hotel. On Saturday, March 31, the company hosts its regular Print and Fine Arts Auction, and on Sunday, April 1, for the first time ever the company will present a one-day only fine art salon offering hundreds of original prints and drawings from the legendary Haley & Steele collection, including antique maps, botanicals, Currier & Ives, Audubons. Additional offerings include contemporary art, fine sculpture, unique decoratives and more. Not an auction, this unique Print and Fine Arts Salon offers buyers a chance to browse and select works of their choice at 50% less than retail, with original prints starting as low as $100. The Sheraton Colonial Hotel is located off of Exit 42 on Route 95 North, on the Lynnfield/Wakefield line. For more information visit www.KaminskiAuctions.com or call 978-927-2223.

Kaminski’s auctions are always an exciting arena for bidding on fine art, whether in-person or live online through eBay Live Auctions. The Print and Fine Arts Auction on Saturday will comprise more than 300 lots. Highlights include an important oil on canvas “Portrait of a Woman” by noted French Expressionist painter Jules Pascin (1885-1930); “Servia off the Coast of Belgium,” an oil on canvas by John Frederick Loos; and an oil on canvas “Landscape with Rider on Horseback” by Needham-born Alvan Fisher (1792-1863), along with fine prints such as Frank W. Benson’s etching “The Gunner’s Blind”.

On Sunday, the elegant Print and Fine Arts Salon will welcome buyers with refreshments and live music by the well-known Boston-based Bobby Keyes and Lucky Stereo. The Salon event is free and open to the public, one day only, Sunday, April 1 from 1:00pm to 6:00pm, with a special “Early Buyers’ Preview” from Noon to 1pm at $5 per person.

To further encourage attendance at the Salon by new collectors, interior decorators, or those who are simply curious about collecting art, fine art experts including Kaminski Fine Art Director John Raimo, Frank Kaminski, and former Haley & Steele expert, Erik Brockett, will be on hand throughout the afternoon to answer questions.

“The Salon idea came about while we were discussing ways to introduce more people to art and antique collecting,” notes Frank Kaminski. “Today, everyone knows about things like eBay and Antiques Roadshow, but many people have never attended a live fine art or antiques event. We’re excited at the chance to combine our regular auction with the Salon event in the same weekend.”

Over the past two decades, Kaminski Auctions has emerged as a leading Massachusetts art and antiques auction house. In recent months, Kaminski has experienced dramatic new growth, launched a second location in San Diego, California, and announced the creation of a new Americana Department.
