Teaching the Chant, Extending a Legacy

Back in 1997, Jeff Jeffers was a student at the Missouri Auction School. Now the CEO and principal auctioneer of Selkirk Auctioneers and Appraisers in St. Louis’ Central West End, is also an instructor at the school. He said he enjoys watching the transformation students make in just a day or two. "This is not difficult. It’s uncomfortable, there’s no doubt about that, but it’s not difficult if you understand that repetition is the mother of all skill," he said. Maria Altman of KWMU, the St. Louis NPR Affiliate, visited the gallery to capture the story of the Missouri Auction School, with Jeff and the students in action. Listen to the story here.

Distinctive Fine Art Focus with New Director at Selkirk's May 21 Auction

Sarah Cunningham’s first auction as the newly-installed Fine Art Specialist and Gallery Director of Selkirk Auctioneers & Appraisers is an apt reflection of her passion and focus. Cunningham arrived in St. Louis, home of Selkirk, in July 2015 after a broad base of work in sales and acquisitions, fine art appraisal, consulting, curating, and collection management based in Boston, Massachusetts - where she operated Walker-Cunningham Fine Art. The May 21 Selkirk auction has a distinctive fine art focus, with over 560 lots of paintings, prints and bronzes. Among the notable items is a fresh-to-market painting, held in a family collection for over 50 years: Evening Prayers, a 1909 oil on canvas

Selkirk welcomes media inquiries regarding pre-auction stories, post-auction highlights, photography, and interviews with our specialists and principals regarding any and all aspects of the fine art, antiques and collectibles market.
