South Florida Appraisal Event
Time & Location
About the Event
Event sponsored by the A.E. Backus Museum, Florida Art Appraisals, LLC is pleased to offer the South Florida area an opportunity to obtain professional fine art appraisals. Florida Art Appraisals, LLC offers professional, written appraisals which comply with the national Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP). USPAP standards, established by the national appraisal associations in conjunction with insurance companies and the Internal Revenue Service set the bar for quality, unbiased evaluation of your artwork. Kathleen Fredrick, president of Florida Art Appraisals, LLC will be in the Hibiscus Gallery at Pinecrest Gardens (Formerly Parrot Jungle) performing on-site evaluations of your artwork on
Saturday, February 29th from 10:00 AM – 3:00 PM.
Those who preregister online before 10AM on Saturday, February 29th will receive a $50 discount on their first appraisal.
Please bring your actual artwork from your collection with you. A photograph of the piece is not substantial enough to satisfy the needs of the appraisal process. Those seeking an appraisal will receive a comprehensive written appraisal and evaluation of their artwork approximately 30 days after their initial consultation. Payment is expected at the time of appraisal consultation. Standard appraisals start at $300. However, fees may vary based upon the extent of research time required. Most standard appraisals do not require additional research, however if it is needed, the client will be consulted prior to additional work and fees being assessed. All fees must be paid in full before a completed appraisal will be released. Clients can expect their completed appraisals via email with a hard copy to follow via USPS.
If you prefer to schedule your appraisal from the comfort of your home, we are happy to accommodate you for an additional fee.
Available in the South Florida area by appointment only on February 27th and 28th as well as March 1st.

Appraisals will be completed at Pinecrest Gardens in The Hibiscus Gallery which is located adjacent to the covered porte-cochere at the Garden’s entry. Clients should pull up and unload their paintings prior to parking. While your paintings are being appraised, enjoy a walk through the magnificent botanical garden or enjoy a cappuccino at the café next door.
