Artists! Need help getting your work “show ready” but don’t know where to start? Join AAWR Executive Director and accomplished framer Mindy Tousley as she teaches you the basics to take your piece from easel to exhibition wall. This two-part program will feature live process demonstrations, material examples, as well as tips and tricks for preserving and displaying your art for years to come.
Conservation Framing Part I, held on Saturday, February 29th, will cover framing works on paper and help you navigate the confusing world of conservation materials. The class will also demonstrate mounting, cutting mats of various thicknesses and creating multi-opening displays. Conservation Framing Part II, held on Saturday, March 7th, will focus on fitting and finishing, assembling the final product, and framing works on canvas and textiles.
While it is recommended attendees take both classes, the sessions can be taken independently. Please note, the March 7th session will not re-cover topics addressed in the first class. Attendees are encouraged to wear comfortable clothing as they will be standing to observe the process demonstrations.
Conservation Framing is free courtesy of a matching grant by Cuyahoga Arts and Culture.
