Following CDU Art Gallery being awarded substantial grant funding, freelance art conservator Carolyn McLennan joined the Reinvigorating the MECA Collection project to undertake conservation treatments on those works selected for exhibition. The conservation process was an intensive 10 weeks long program of documentation, cleaning, and pigment consolidation.

 

Join us for a fascinating insight into art conservation, as Carolyn explains her methodology and particularly how and why the bark paintings have remained in relatively great condition for more than 40 years.
