Dusty family treasures and neglected antiques will be valued on Saturday morning at the Bendigo Art Gallery.

The Friends of the Gallery are hosting well-respected Australian valuer Warren Joel from 10am to 2.30pm.

The event acts as a fundraiser for subsidiary group Friends of the Gallery.

The group buy items for the gallery to use with advice from gallery directors.

Long-time member of Friends of the Gallery Dorothy Graham said last year's event was a success and they hoped for the same attendance this year.

She said Warren Joel is a great asset to the event.

"People bring very interesting and beautiful treasures along," she said.

Ms Graham said some people had high price expectations for their items.

"Some get a surprise to discover things are worth more than they thought," she said.

The event is $10 per item with a limit of two items per person.
