ATTENTION: Overwhelmed artists, families of artists and collectors- Do you have a studio, attic, or an entire home brimming with art? Want to get organized but don’t know where to start? Join the Artists Archives on Saturday, November 23rd, 1-3pm for Everything in its Place, a 45-minute discussion lead by Karen Eterovich which will walk you the process of creating your own, personal archive. 


Everything in its Place will cover topics such as preservation, research, cataloging, storage and the use of accessible tools such as spreadsheets, sheet protectors, portfolios and estate stamps for collection’s management. The discussion will also include ways to organize ephemera like photographs, journals, texts, newspaper clippings, programs and catalogues. Finally, Eterovich will address how a personal archive can help to create a documented history of artwork (provenance) as well as enhance relationships with gallerists, curators, institutions and buyers. Sample materials will be provided. A question and answer period will follow the talk as well as a meet-and-greet with the speaker and refreshments.


Everything in its Place: Personal Archiving with Karen Eterovich is part of the Fulfilling the Eye: Anthony Eterovich (1916 – 2011), a unique retrospective that traces the work of Cleveland painter Anthony Eterovich over his seminal 80-year career.

The program is free and open to the public, courtesy of a matching grant by Cuyahoga Arts and Culture (CAC), however, PLEASE CLICK HERE to register on Eventbrite or call our offices, 216.721.9020 to reserve your spot.


About the presenter: Karen Eterovich became an instant archivist after her father, Cleveland artist Anthony Eterovich, died in April of 2011, leaving behind decades of work. Karen soon found that her childhood in the Cleveland arts community and the many jobs she held while a struggling actor in NYC provided her with a unique skill set to tackle the sizable collection. It was after seeking advice from Cleveland Institute of Art, the Artists Archives, ARTneo and gallerist Bill Tregoning, however, that Karen discovered that she had a lot to learn! She remains her fathers’ champion; when not curating and promoting her father’s art, Karen performs as Jane Austen in her own solo show. Karen holds a Bachelor of Arts from the University of Akron and a Master of Fine Arts from the University of South Carolina. She is also a member of Actors’ Equity Association, Screen Actors Guild and the Dramatists Guild.
