Whether you're new to framing or just looking for a few refresher tips, come and hear about which materials and methods are safe for preserving your artwork. Why does paper darken when it's exposed to unsafe mat boards? What can stop colors from fading? What do terms like rag board, acid-free board, conservation glass, and museum glass mean? This information and more will be useful both for do-it-yourself framers and those who want to know what to ask for from professional framers.

We'll share some social time before and after the framing talk.

Our expert speaker Jane Weis is the owner of Jane Weis Fine Art Framing. She has many years of experience doing archival quality framing independently and for the Weisman Art Museum, the Walker Art Center, and many other institutions and art handling businesses. She has also worked extensively in art collections management, handling, and installation. Jane is an independent artist who lives and works in St. Paul.
