Leslie Hindman Auctioneers Opens Denver Facility

Chicago, Illinois - February 2012 - Leslie Hindman Auctioneers, one of the nation’s leading fine art auction firms, announces the February opening of a new auction facility in Denver, Colorado. The office is located in Denver’s Golden Triangle, 960 Cherokee Street, situated just blocks away from the Denver Art Museum and the new Clyfford Still Museum. Leslie Hindman Auctioneers has been in expansion mode over the past two years opening salerooms in Naples, Palm Beach, Milwaukee, Denver and coming soon to New Orleans.

“The current market is creating the perfect environment for the expansion of our firm,” says Leslie Hindman, CEO/President of the firm bearing her name.  “People are interested in selling their valuable personal property in an effort to raise capital or retire debt.  Additionally, the influence of the global art market and strong prices realized have resulted in consecutive record years for our company.”  “We are delighted to better serve our clients in the West and Southwest, both buyers and sellers, by being available and in closer proximity” says Jim Sharp, Director of Regional Offices.

The Anne S. and Robert E. Clay Collection of Native American Art is scheduled to go on the block at Leslie Hindman Auctioneers’ Denver saleroom on March 11, 2012. The sale will include over 300 lots of Pueblo pottery, Navajo rugs and Southwestern jewelry.   Mr. and Mrs. Clay were active members of the Douglas Society at the Denver Art Museum.  Over the years the Clays made donations from their collection to the Denver Art Museum, The Wheelwright Museum in Santa Fe and made loans to other institutions in the area.

The Denver office representatives, Maron Hindman and Annie McLagan, both worked previously with Leslie Hindman Auctioneers in Chicago.  Ms. McLagan was a Director of Salvage One in 1984-1995, then the largest antique architectural salvage company in America and owned by Leslie Hindman.  Ms. McLagan relocated to Denver with her family.  She has been involved as the representative for Leslie Hindman Auctioneers since then.  Maron Hindman was the Director of Marketing at Leslie Hindman Auctioneers in Chicago from 1988-1996 before relocating to Denver in 2010.

The Denver facility will be fully supported by Hindman’s specialists in each department including: Fine Art, Jewelry and Timepieces, Books and Manuscripts, Asian Works of Art, Furniture and Decorative Arts and Vintage Couture and Accessories. The saleroom will hold three auctions a year and regular appraisal appointments. To view information on the forthcoming auction and appraisal schedule, please visit
