From painted hides to carved sculptures to blown glass, the world of American Indian Fine art constitutes much more than meets-the-eye. With the array of intricate detail applied by such artists as Oscar Howe, Merina Lujan (Pop Chalee) and Preston Singletary and the abstract techniques developed by George Morrison and his contemporaries, how can one begin to place a price on these distinctly unique, yet equally wonderful, works of art?

Corinne Cain is here to help answer this question. For only $45 (applies to both members and non-members of the American Society of Appraisers), you can download and enjoy an hour-long, 78-slide Powerpoint and webinar (note:  audio is only available live) presented by veteran art appraiser Corinne Cain, touching on the basics of the appraisal of American Indian Fine Art. Having personally trained several other appraisers and co-authoring the American Society of Appraisers AI appraisal exam, Corinne Cain’s appraisal abilities have been widely recognized both within the American Society of Appraisers and elsewhere.

Some of the many topics Corinne will be discussing include:

• The origin of AI Fine Arts (painted buffalo, deerskin hides, ceremonial shirts, etc.)

• How these developed into contemporary forms of AI art such as painting, drawing and sculpture (referencing specific, non-AI influences).

Styles and biographies of prominent, AI artists including visual examples of their work.

AI Fine Art Market Levels including websites for corresponding galleries and organizations

Museums hosting significant AI Fine Art collections

• Extensive, Annotated Bibliographies (available for download) including both general AI Fine Art information as well as books/articles on specific artists

The webinar will take place on July 21, 2011 from 3-4 PM EST. Sign-up today through the American Society of Appraisers’ website: http://www.appraisers.org/Education/ViewClass.aspx?ClassID=272
