It’s a very nice gift, indeed: A Red Deer woman was told a charcoal and tempera artwork called The Pottery Workers, which was left to her by her aunt, could fetch $40,000 to $60,000 at auction. David Freeman, an appraiser with the British Artiques Road Show at Parkland Mall on Thursday confirmed what the owner already knew. Cathy, right, who declined to give her last name for security reasons, had been researching the artist, Alfredo Ramos Martinez, who is considered the father of modern Mexican art, for several years. And she’d already discovered some of his larger oil paintings on panel have sold for more than a $1 million. Cathy said she has no plans to sell her smaller drawing, which was done on paper, saying she’s always loved the figurative work. It also reminds her of her aunt. More than 300 people had made appointments to have various items appraised on Thursday. The British Artiques Roadshow continues in Red Deer through Saturday. Cathy’s sister Anne, left, also had some items for the staff at the Artiques Roadshow to appraise.
