Bruce Knackert manages Lynden's indoor collection of paintings, small sculpture and works on paper. In previous sessions of this series, he has unframed work from the Lynden collection that showed signs of deterioration due to poor framing practices. In this session, he invites you to bring in a framed work from your own collection to take apart and analyze under his direction (May 7). The group will then choose one of these works to be reframed in the second session (June 11). Knackert will reframe the work step-by-step, discussing and demonstrating options for proper glazing, matting, and mounting along the way. Participants will have an opportunity to practice some of the framing techniques, including cutting mat board and glass.
