A ghost of a once great samurai: UV and acidic paper damaged Japanese woodblock print. The second print was not framed until much later because it had a hole in it. #artconservation @ Studio Six Art Conservation

Art conservators spend most of their time in the studio with cotton balls and Q-tips, so it's always nice to spend time outside with other conservators and people interested in preserving history. Of course being one of the precentors at Save The Best For Later art conservation event last week put me in the spot light for a brief time. I enjoyed the chance to talk about leather conservation in Texas, but it's nice to be back in the studio again.....

Working with the El Paso Museum of History this week on a few historic saddles.

Did you ever wonder what happens behind the scenes at the museum? Besides creating exhibits and developing programs and events, a lot of our work deals with caring for the many objects in our collections.

This week, the El Paso Museum of History is hosting 2 conservators from Studio Six Art Conservation to work on a few of our saddles in need of help. Saddles being preserved need to be cared for differently than those being actively used. You can really see the difference the conservators have made so far, especially with these silver coin conchos!

The City of Dallas Office of Cultural Affairs will meet to discuss the fate of the sculpture installation in the Bath House lagoon.

This sculpture by artists Tom Orr and Frances Bagley has fallen into a bad state, and with NO city funding for the up keep of ANY public works of art there is a strong local push to have this sculpture deacquisition.

This is a great opportunity to address multiple issues pertaining to public art. I hope you will attend.
