DCA Annual Meeting 2023

DCA Annual Meeting with Guest Speaker Alex Eblen, Senior Specialist and Vice President, Sotheby’s 

Tuesday, May 23, 2023 at the DCA
5:30pm reception with wine/light bites
6:15pm program 

In anticipation of one of the most exciting auctions that Sotheby’s has mounted in years, Alex Eblen will explain the fascinating world of auctions and provide an insider’s view of what it is like to consign, bid, and purchase. 

His specialty is colored gems – including rubies, emeralds, sapphires, and diamonds – which will be featured in the June 8 “Sotheby’s Magnificent Jewels” auction.

Founded in 1744, Sotheby’s is the oldest and largest internationally recognized firm of fine art auctioneers in the world. While intimidating to some, jewelry auctions offer the opportunity to admire, study, and collect jewelry and gems that can be surprisingly reasonable to quite opulent. 

Alex Eblen’s presentation will be preceded by several minutes of DCA business, including a vote on the proposed board of directors slate for 2023-2024. 

5:30pm reception with wine/light bites
6:15pm program

Free to DCA members, $25 public. Pl
