Art as trendy, every other piece highly valued (5)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

rated

Here is my best explanation:

'highly valued' is the definition.

(I've seen this before)

'art as trendy every other piece' is the subsidiary indication.

'every other piece' indicates alternate letters.

'art'+'as'+'trendy'='artastrendy'

The alternating letters of 'artastrendy' are 'rated'.

This clue was last seen in The Times

(Other definitions for rated that I've seen before include "Assessed; merited", "Graded by trade", "Adjudged", "Scolded, estimated", "Had a high opinion of", "Stormed", "Considered", "Trade (anag.)", "Reckoned" and "Assessed, valued".)
