Ask a Conservator: Talk and Q&A with Harriet Stratis

The artist may print his/her own work or engage a printer and publisher. The collector may be an individual, dealer, or museum. Over time prints may change due to an array of factors. If the change compromises the integrity of the print, the conservator’s knowledge and skills are key to stabilizing and preserving the art. Conservation requires knowledge of both art and science. We are fortunate that Harriet Stratis, technical art historian and paper conservator, will talk about these changes as well as demonstrating her process on March 23rd at 5:30 PM EST.

Members can send images of prints in their collections illustrating change before the event. More information about sharing these images can be found in the Winter Newsletter, which was recently sent out to members. Go to “Upcoming Print Events.” You can also inquire at info@printclubofnewyork.org.
