TRIBAL ART EXPERT JOHN BUXTON SPEAKS ON THE LEGACY OF ART COLLECTOR ALLAN STONE AT RAGO ON OCTOBER 17

This presentation will highlight not only the Allan Stone collection of Tribal Art being offered on October 19, but also the energy and excitement of the art world in New York City in the 1960’s. The 60’s were a decade of great political and social change, causing a surge of introspection and sense of exploration reflected broadly across the arts of the era. It was during this time that Allan Stone became a major force in the art world, owing to his enthusiasm for, and early entry into, the realm of both contemporary and ethnographic art.

John Buxton has been in the antiques and appraisal business for more than 40 years. He is a Certified Appraiser of Personal Property and former National Board Member with the International Society of Appraiser with expertise in African, Pre-Columbian, Oceanic, and American Indian art. Buxton has also served as an appraiser on Antiques Roadshow since its inception in 1997. Buxton owns Shango Galleries based in Dallas, Texas and has been an active auction cataloger of ethnographic art since 2015.

The auction house opens on Wednesday, October 17 at noon. A wine and cheese reception begins at 5 pm. The presentation will begin at 6 pm.

Guests are invited to R.S.V.P. to raac@ragoarts.com or 609-397-9374 ext. 119.
