Three Floors of Antiques

Artists Jim and Kathy Burnett painted, exhibited, studied and taught art locally for more than 40 years. Both earned a Master’s of Art Degree from the University of Missouri Kansas City. In addition, both were avid collectors of antiques, attending auctions when the rule of thumb was, as Kathy puts it, “one dollar per gallon for antique stoneware crocks was the going price.” That was a long time ago. With Jim’s passing, Kathy is now trading her 4500 square foot home for a 25-foot RV. She didn’t take much with her. This will be a very full sale almost entirely antique and collectible.

24th Annual Spring Fine Art Auction

Featuring the Jan Weiner Collection

April 23rd 2022

Jan Weiner's award-winning Dallas interior design firm began advising clients on fine art acquisitions in the 1960s. By the late 70s she was hanging one-man shows and group exhibitions on the walls of her Topeka home, and the rest - as they say - is history. In the 30 years that followed Jan represented more than a hundred contemporary artists of local, regional and national reputation through her galleries in Topeka and Kansas City. Along the way, she amassed a huge archive of correspondence and mementos from the artists she served and grew close to, while also building a formidable collection of their paintings, prints, mixed media and studio ceramics.

  • Modern, Abstract and Non-representational Works by Local and National Artists, 1960 - 2010
  • Legacy Prints and Paintings by American and European Artists, 1860 - 1950
  • Important 20th Century American Studio Pottery
