Stephan Welz & Company, in association with Sotheby’s, is South Africa’s leading auction house of Fine & Decorative Arts. In late February 2009, Chairman Mark Kretschmer and Senior Paintings Specialists Ian Hunter and Imre Lamprecht will be hosting three free valuation sessions in Australia to introduce themselves to the market and present a unique opportunity to capitalise on the global explosion of South African Art prices on auction. This opportunity is specifically geared to take advantage of the high prices achieved on auction in South Africa itself. If you have family or friends in Australia with art that might be suitable for auction, it could be well worthwhile forwarding this website (www.swelco.co.za) to them.
Three venues have been selected for the free valuation sessions in Sydney, Melbourne and Perth. The following details have been confirmed. Appointments are essential.
Sydney 24 February (9am – 5pm) – Sotheby’s, 118-122 Queen St., Woollahra 2025
Melbourne 27/28 February (9am – 5pm) – Sotheby’s, 926 High St., Armadale 3143
Perth 4 March (10am – 5pm) – Perth Galleries, 92 Stirling Highway, North Fremantle 6159
