Barton Civic Society – Fakes and Forgeries: The Art World’s Biggest Headache

September 3 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm | Cost: See below

Organized by: Barton Civic Society

Event Navigation

It is estimated that as much as sixty per cent of art on the current market is fake. Marilyn Roberts returns to take a light-hearted look at how some of the world’s leading auction houses, galleries and museums have been fooled by forgers working from home, such as the infamous Garden Shed Gang of Bolton.

Talks take place at the Wilderspin National School Museum in the Joseph Wright Hall (ground floor), Queen Street [DN18 5QP].  There is car parking and facilities for disabled visitors.
