This workshop is for artists seeking guidance on the longevity of their artwork. Art Conservator Gloria Velandia Ludmer will advise on the safekeeping of artwork and concerns to be aware of in the making of new work. We will investigate materials, treatment, and preventative conservation, with a focus on 2-dimensional and 3-dimensional artworks.
Designed to be an interactive group-learning experience, the content will be based on questions and topics submitted by the audience in advance of the workshop. Participants are also encouraged to bring images to share with the group (loaded onto a phone, tablet, or usb drive).
Class size limited to 15 participants.
