All artworks slowly age with time. Some patination of materials can add a certain charm but under the wrong conditions, drawings & watercolours will fade and papers can go biscuit brown. A 19th Century landscape full of rich indigo blue tints can become a pale shadow of itself, if exposed to light or damp over a generation.
Fortunately modern pigments, papers and framing materials are much more robust and there are plenty of sensible measures to help protect artworks from internal and external harm. Penny will give some practical advice on dos and don’ts of caring for contemporary works of art on paper in a domestic setting and illustrate her talk with restoration and conservation projects from her studio.
Penny Jenkins ACR is an accredited member, listed on the Conservation Register of the Institute of Conservation (www.icon.org.uk) and has over 30 years experience as a specialist paper conservator working with private collectors, auction houses and Institutions. Formerly London based, she now lives & works in Cambridge.
This talk will take place on Saturday 11th from 1pm.
