Interface Arts: Talk and Workshop

Saturday, 19 January 2019 , 14:00 to 16:00
Oriental Museum

Join us for a fascinating talk and workshop by painting conservator Rosalind Sergeant.

The talk will cover the history of painting conservation, what modern painting conservation is and how it is practised, and the 'battle' between artists and conservators. Rosalind will also share tips on how to paint in a conservation-friendly manner, and how to look after your paintings.

Following the talk there will be a practical workshop in which you will be able to try pigment matching with egg tempera paints and retouching an individual painting.

About Rosalind Sergeant
Rosalind is a Paintings Conservator based in the North East. She works for Sunset Conservation assessing and treating easel paintings for private clients. This includes oil and acrylic paintings. Paintings are often covered with dirt and yellowed varnish which can both damage the work and interfere with the appreciation of the original artistic intention. Using the appropriate techniques these problems can be removed and the painting restored nearer to its original condition.
With a background in Fine Art, Rosalind studied the Conservation of Easel Paintings at Northumbria University. Following her studies she gained experience at the Laing Art Gallery in Newcastle Upon Tyne, and as a self-employed Conservator.
