EXCEPTIONAL ART AT AFFORDABLE PRICES VIRTUAL TOURS ARRANGEMENTS MADE TO VISIT THE ARTIST'S STUDIO OR GALLERY
Cameo Appearances opened in the East Village of New York City in 1994. It was thecollaboration of auctioneer Buster (Herb) Atkins and photographer Lynne Burns. Cameo Appearances sold retro furniture, antiques, kitsch, housewares and— some really good art. The artists were a diverse group from New York and Cape Cod. Everyone loved the art.
The store and gallery had three shows a year. TheElvis show brought the most publicity, but it was the New York, New York show that sold out! Cameo Appearances closed on December 31, 1999 so that Lynne and Herb could give their auctions in New Jersey their full attention. Now that Concepts 1 Auctions has come into its own, it is time to turn back to Cameo Appearances.
