This May, Yelp Elites gathered for a one-of-a-kind art collecting experience with the incredible staff of Cowan’s Auctions. Cowan’s Auctions is a premier art auction house selling Fine Art, Decorative Art, American Indian Art, Antique Firearms, Historical Americana and Fine Jewelry and Timepieces.
Cowan’s Auctions holds major consignment auctions throughout the year, most supported by a full color catalog that is sent to buyers throughout the United States and Canada. Cowan’s major auctions are broadcast live on the internet, and attract bidders from around the globe.Have you ever wanted to start an art collection or buy art but don’t feel you have the skills? We get it, buying art can be intimidating. But Cowan’s is dedicated to making art accessible to all. Yelp Elites mixed and mingled as Cowan’s Business Manager Carrie Pinney used real fine and decorative art to teach tips and tricks to confidently participate in an art auction. As Yelp Elite Kim K. gushed, “I loved all of the tips and intend on keeping a black light with me when I go to an auction! I laugh, but it’s true and such a great tip! I feel so much more informed about art in general and I like to think of myself of an art enthusiast. Thank you for the great experience!”Yelp Elites left the evening feeling inspired to start art collecting and positively participate in art auctions. As Yelp Elite Sherri G. explained, “Categories of collecting were explained in detail and [the staff gave] great hints, suggestions and advice in a down-to-earth, easy to understand manner. Who knew a black light could be used to uncover cracks and repairs in sculptures, paintings and more. The facility was nice but in no way intimidating. Carrie and staff explained Cowan’s approach to auctions and even gave some great advice on attending future auctions.”Check out the outstanding reviews and photos here.
