October 23: Archival Mats, Mounts and Framing
Online registration closed. Walk-ins welcome.
Working with a piece from the Lynden collection with clear signs of the effects of improper matting (in this case, an untitled Arpels watercolor showing the Manhattan skyline with Brooklyn Bridge, purchased in 1965), Knackert will unframe and then reframe the work step-by-step, discussing and demonstrating options for proper glazing, matting, and mounting along the way.
