Workshop Location: Worcester Art Museum, Worcester, MA
______________________________

NEDCC’s Care of Paintings workshop is part of a collaborative program with the Balboa Art Conservation Center and was developed in partnership with the New England Museum Association.

This workshop will cover the issues to consider when developing a collections care policy for traditional paintings on canvas or board. The workshop will be helpful whether you are establishing new procedures or making improvements to existing collections care policies.

Topics will include environmental issues, such as temperature, relative humidity, and pollutants; storage and display options; “best practices” for handling and transporting paintings; and housekeeping procedures. Participants will also learn practical remedial care methods and will be provided with guidelines for working with a conservator.

The workshop will be led by a professional paintings conservator from the Balboa Art Conservation Center in San Diego, CA.

Workshop Time: 9 AM to 3:30 PM
Workshop cost: $150 ($130 early bird registration)
