Art Care Seminar for Painters whose works have been affected by Hurricane Sandy
Rustin Levenson Art Conservation Associates is offering afternoon seminars to help artists treat works affected by the storm. The 3 ½ hour seminar will include a short power point presentation on treating paintings affected by water, debris, and mold. Instructions and demonstrations of treatment techniques will be followed by hands-on training on works brought by the artists. Artists should bring one small painting for this purpose. Supplies will be available, along with a supply source list, website list, and printed instructions. If complications of treatments necessitate intervention by a conservator, a proposal and estimate will be written for those artists to use in dealing with granting organizations and insurance companies.
The seminars will be from 1:30-5:00 PM, April 29, in Hoboken, and June 4,5,6,7 at our New York studio. The seminars can accommodate up to five artists and are first come, first served. Interested artists should email the studio through our website (www.artcarenyc.com
) with the date they would like to attend. The seminars are funded by Golden Artist Colors, Inc. (www.Goldenpaints.com
) and conservation supplies are donated by Talas (www.talasonline.com
). There is a $20 charge for participation.
