You don’t need one of Rick Harrison’s buddies to appraise your art and antiques — that’s what the Winnipeg Art Gallery will attempt to do.

The WAG will host an Appraisal Weekend with Bonhams auction house from November 15-16, examining items from the public, such as paintings and antiques.

Bonhams is one of the world’s oldest and largest auctioneers of fine art and antiques. Its experts will look over jewellery, paintings, prints, sculptures, porcelain, silver, pottery, glassware, books, maps, furniture, and other antiques. Items not eligible for appraisal are coins, bank notes, stamps, toys, musical instruments, or militaria.

The cost to have an item appraised is $20 with a limit of four pieces per person. Registration is required and those interested should contact the WAG to make a reservation.

Doors will be open both Saturday and Sunday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. with tea and coffee available.
