Around 3,000 randomly selected people had tickets to the filming; they were allowed to bring two objects each for appraisal by antiques experts.
Of those appraisals, only the most intriguing are featured on the TV show.
The segments will air in three separate episodes on Jan. 28, Feb. 4 and Feb. 11 on WEDU PBS.
For fans who can’t wait for the premiere, WEDU PBS and The Ringling will hold an advanced screening of the first hour of the Sarasota episodes on Jan. 15 at the Historic Asolo Theatre.
Seasoned “Antiques Roadshow” appraiser Stuart Whitehurst will lead a discussion afterward.
Tickets for the screening are free, but seats are limited; they can be reserved at ringling.org.
Details: 7 p.m. Jan. 15. Historic Asolo Theatre, 5401 Bay Shore Road, Sarasota. Reserve tickets at ringling.org/events/antiques-roadshow-sarasota-preview-screening. Tickets are limited to two per person.
