Treasure Market, Art and Antiques Resale Event, Set for Spring, 2007

Catered Kick-off on Friday is Followed by Two Days Open Free to All

Stanford, California, September 19, 2005—The Membership Board of Governors of the Cantor Arts Center at Stanford University announces Treasure Market 2007, to be held in the Spring of 2007. This popular biennial resale event takes place on the tented grounds of the Cantor Arts Center and offers art from around the world, antiques, china, collectible books, crystal, silver, linens, furs, jewelry.

“We celebrate our 25th sale with Treasure Market 2007,” said Joan Hong who is co-chairing the event with Susan Dennis.  “This 50-year tradition began with the efforts of museum volunteers who instituted in 1958 a unique shopping experience that brought together a community of Stanford and Center supporters which continues to this day.” People donate some amazing pieces when they are downsizing their estates, remodeling or refurbishing their homes, or refreshing their collections and are looking for a new home for a piece of art. Our Treasure Market volunteers seek donations all year from art dealers and private collectors so we can offer discerning buyers a real marketplace of treasures.

"Treasure Market is a wonderful way for people to begin collecting valuable art at affordable prices," commented Paula Kirkeby, owner of Smith Anderson Editions in Palo Alto.

Treasure Market kicks off with a Friday Opening Night Party with wine and hors d'oeuvres. Ticket information will be available in 2006.
