As we have been busy working with several corporate collections currently here at The Center, we offer our readers an article regarding the process of preserving such an art collection, as well as an invitation to a custom framing Open House we will be holding in May, and a detailed treatment of a torn painting.

Portrait of Thomas Fox
The seamless repair of a torn painting is one of the finer before/after comparisons a conservator can provide, perhaps due to the seeming irreversibility of a ripped canvas. A deeper look into the process reveals the many elements that combine to repair the damage.
Corporate Collections and The Center
Whether a corporation’s art collection is a curated investment, a donation from an art-loving CEO, an act of community connection, or a trove of archival material, keeping it in good condition requires the knowledge of experts. The Conservation Center has a long history of caring for corporate art holdings in four categories: disaster response, re-housing, storage, and display.
A Custom Framing Open House
In the spirit of Antiques Roadshow, we’re offering personal frame consultations with our experts on Wednesday, May 11th from 3-7pm. Bring a piece from your collection at any time during the event!
