Archiving and Conserving Art

Venue: McClelland Gallery and Sculpture Park

Care and Conservation of Works on Paper

Presenter: Jude Fraser, Manager Consultancy Programs.
Information from the Centre for Cultural Materials Conservation University of Melbourne.

The two hour session at McClelland Gallery was for collectors, artists or anyone who had an interest in art, producing art or collecting of a variety of objects. As a practising artist, I wanted to learn more about conserving and archiving from the beginning, meaning from my studio and the initial creation of the artwork through to assisting clients to better care for their purchases from me.

This included consulting on storage of my materials, storage of and archiving artworks – especially those on paper (short and long term) and plans for storage facilities for the growth and expansion of my studio.
