Art Talks bring art history and appreciation to the Art Center. Many of the Forums bring expert staff from the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts to share the resources of the Museum. RAL is a community Partner with VMFA.
Art Talks are free and opened to the public. They are held at the RAL Art Center, 19 North Main Street in Kilmarnock.
The Art of Painting Conservation and You
Speaker: Lorraine Brevig
Wednesday, October 21, 1 pm
Come hear an expert in the field of Fine Art Conservation, and new RAL member and artist, Lorraine Brevig, of Richmond Conservation Studio. She'll tell us all about what materials and techniques current artists should consider when working on their own art. Plus, see some of the amazing results she and her fellow conservationists at Richmond Conservation have produced on some lovely and historic works using lots of knowledge and plenty of patience. You won't believe your eyes! Did you know some people put old paintings in their washing machines to try to clean them? Don't do that!
Come join us at 1 pm for a pre-talk reception. Talk begins at 2pm.
Speaker: Lorraine Brevig, BFA, MFA Painting and Printmaking, MA Certificate of Advanced Study in Art Conservation, Member American Institute for Conservation of Historic and Artistic Works
