Education

 
2012 MESDA Textile Seminar hosted by Beverley and Jeffrey Evans in Mt. Crawford
Continuing education is an important element of collecting, evaluating, and understanding decorative arts. Because of this Jeffrey S. Evans & Associates is proud to host and/or sponsor a variety of yearly educational events. These include a Virginia Decorative Arts Seminar held each June and a Fall Lecture Series each November. In addition, we are honored to support and work closely with numerous national institutions including the Museum of the Shenandoah Valley, the Museum of Early Southern Decorative Arts (MESDA), and Colonial Williamsburg
 
Research is also a vital part of collecting. Our staff spends countless hours diligently researching many of the objects we sell. Our Reference Bibliography section provides a listing of books, journals, and articles that our staff use and often note in our catalogue entries. You will find all of these resources very worthwhile.
 
The current and past seminars we have produced and/or hosted are attended by collectors and professionals from across the United States and Canada. In addition, our staff regularly attends and presents at antiques seminars including MESDA, Colonial Williamsburg, and Winterthur.
 
Many of our past auction catalogues and selected reference books may be purchased directly from us. In fact why not purchase one of our Jeffrey S. Evans Tote Bags to hold them all in. Merchandise purchased in person at our gallery, or shipped within the state of Virginia is subject to 5.3% sales tax. We ship Monday through Friday (except major holidays). Shipping is done either through UPS or USPS. A packing fee may apply to larger orders. You may pay though our secure online form with a MasterCard® or VISA® or with a check or money order. Please use our order form, which you may fax or mail to us. Before mailing your check or money order, please telephone or email to inquire about the cost of delivery for your order.
