Alchemy Fine Art Restorers owner Kate Wood will present an overview of art conservation to one of the world’s top organizations when it comes to restoring historical treasures.
Kate will present to the Treasure Coast Chapter of the Questers on Wednesday, 12 February 2014. Attendees to this members-only event can bring example objects in need of restoration or cleaning for discussion on how they would be approached from an expert conservator’s point of view. Objects should be of a manageable size and weight. Kate will also share some insight into the tools of her trade as well as her philosophy of fine art restoration.
The Questers, an international organization, was created to advance the understanding and knowledge of antiques, and to preserve and restore historical sites and buildings. They share a common motto when it comes to antiques, “It’s fun to search and a joy to find.”
Aside from their charitable support of area historical foundations, the Treasure Coast Chapter hosts an annual antique show in downtown Stuart, FL, which has raised funds to restore the Stuart Feed Store Museum, the House of Refuge, the Lyric Theatre, the Victory Museum, the Children’s Museum, the Mansion at Tuckahoe, and others.
