THE GOOD, THE BAD andTHE UGLY
of Appraising



Sometimes we have to work with UNSIGHTLY or just plain odd items.

These are the items left over from the estate sale that did not find a buyer, and you don't know what to do with them.

Well, we've got the solution.
Bring your favorite odd or quirky item to our FAE table at the ISA Conference.

We're going to find them new owners.
All works will be put in a silent auction, with proceeds helping to fund FAE scholarships in 2017.
We look forward to receiving your items!

2016 Scholarship Recipient Rachel Hoffman has this to say about her experience:

Thank You, FAE for Inviting Me Up
by Rachel Hoffman, ISA AM

"Receiving a scholarship from the Foundation for Appraisal Education (FAE) was one of my biggest highlights of 2016. Becoming an appraiser on paper through the ISA has been my lifelong dream, and I had always looked up to appraisers but didn't think that I could be one until one night at 2 AM, I got out of bed and registered for the core course through the ISA. This was a major turning point for me and started what would be some of the most valuable and cherished experiences of my life. Not only did I learn an incredible amount during my first course, but I also met some of my most treasured friends. I was instantly hooked. Being around people with the same vision and goals and becoming part of a community of people with so many varied talents and areas of expertise was useful for my professional development but most importantly, it helped me grow personally. Through my appraisal education, I started to find myself for the first time as an adult. The FAE scholarship contributed to making it possible for me to continue to achieve my goals and helped build in me a sense of confidence that a dedicated person can achieve success. Continuing education is invaluable, and I can't speak enough on the importance of it...

...By the time I finished the program, I had met many other professionals and dedicated students who will serve me as role models. We were a diverse bunch who drew strength from one another. I'm proud of the relationships and network I formed, and I learned to see many things through a new perspective. And my appreciation of great works of art has grown exponentially. I value the importance of becoming a lifelong learner."

The FAE also partners with The Decorative Arts Trust and The Winterthur Museum to offer the Wendell Garrett Scholarship and a scholarship to our 2017 FAE Seminar.

Decorative Arts Trust Scholarship
The Decorative Arts Trust, a non-profit organization in Media, PA (www.decorativeartstrust.org) is offering a $500 Scholarship to the 2017 FAE Seminar in September. (Details announced soon.)

The Decorative Arts Trust mission is to promote and foster the appreciation and study of the decorative arts, with a particular focus on providing opportunities for young professionals and graduate students.

In line with their mission, they are offering this scholarship specifically for those appraisers who have five years or less experience as a professional appraiser.


Programs at Winterthur--Wendell Garrett Scholarships

The Foundation for Appraisal Education honors Wendell Garrett (1929-2012) who provided significant contributions to the education of appraisers at the Winterthur Museum. Wendell was a member of the Winterthur Program in Early American Culture Class of 1957. He was also the editor of The Magazine Antiques, a senior VP at Sotheby's, and one of the original Antiques Roadshow appraisers. His historical perspective of all things antique was world renown.

The following Wendell Garrett scholarships are available (2016-2018) to graduate students and professionals with less than five year's experience in the field, without a requirement for association with the appraisal field and may be found on Winterthur's site.
•Winterthur Institute (2016-2018) - $1,000 per year.
