2016 Equine Art, Antique and Rare Book Auction Currently Accepting Submissions

Mar 30th, 2016 | By | Category: News

LEXINGTON, KY – The American Saddlebred Museum’s 2016 Equine Art, Antique and Rare Book Consignment Auction is seeking equine artwork of any breed, in any medium, by any artist, as well as rare books, unique antiques and historic artifacts. Due to the popularity of George Ford Morris artwork, the auction has expanded to include any sporting subject matter by Morris, including, but not limited to, dogs, cats, poultry, cattle as well as advertising posters and programs. Remember, this is a consignment auction – the Museum is not asking you to donate your items, but rather to consign and sell – however, suitable donations are never refused!

The 2016 auction will be held during the Lexington Junior League Horse Show on Saturday July 9, 2016 at 12:00 Noon at the American Saddlebred Museum’s Showplace for Saddlebreds at the Kentucky Horse Park. A preview party will precede from 11:00 am to 12:00 Noon. Along with the regular onsite auction, online bidding will be offered at liveauctioneers.com, an online auction site with a niche in equine artwork. Results from all past auctions can be viewed on our website, www.asbmuseum.org. The deadline for submissions is March 25, 2016.

The Museum publishes a quality four-color catalogue for this sale that is distributed online and by mail thousands of interested buyers. The auction is also marketed in the industry’s trade publications, by liveauctioneers.com and via social media. If you have any items you would like to offer for sale, need more information or would like to receive a consignment contract, conditions of sale or an auction catalogue, please contact the Museum at museum@asbmuseum.org or by phone at 859-259-2746.
