Have you ever pondered the mystery of paintings conservation or wondered how to care for the framed works of art in your own institution’s collection? If so, consider attending a workshop in the art conservation lab at the N.C. Museum of Art in Raleigh, Thursday August 1, 2019. Paintings Conservator, Perry Hurt, will lead the instruction. The workshop will include a primer on paintings conservation concepts, a tour of the museum lab with current projects, and a discussion of collection problems, storage, and safe handling. Participants will learn preservation techniques for the back of paintings, such as re-keying and vacuuming, and will practice upgrading frames with archival backings and hanging hardware.
