Abstract and bio:
Karen Zukor will give an informal talk about her workplace and the challenges of addressing conservation and preservation in India and Haiti.

Karen has been a paper conservator in private practice for many decades. Her expertise encompasses a full range of work on paper, from the 15th century up to contemporary pieces. She has been responsible for many collections - including fine art, archival material, maps, historic currency and rare books, both in private hands and institutions. The studio is involved in both conservation and preservation treatments; she and her staff repair damaged items but also provide information in extending the life of an object. Karen has trained both pre- and post program conservation interns for over thirty years and lectures widely to the general public.

Zukor Art Conservation is in Oakland California.
