Conservator in Residence

Public Program

Meet our Conservator in Residence: Spencer Montcalm

Saturday, February 26, 2022 | 12 pm – 3 pm

Join our Conservator in Residence, Spencer Montcalm, on select Saturdays from 11 am - 2 pm for a series of programs in the third-floor gallery!

Art Conservators do a condition assessment to learn about the materials and construction of a work of art. Conservation issues can be identified during this process. A conservation treatment plan to remedy these issues can then be prepared. These plans include all treatment steps, a cost estimate, and a treatment timeline. Conservation treatment can begin after approval by the legal custodian of the artwork.


Join Spencer in the gallery space as he assesses these featured artworks:

Isabel McLaughlin’s Nipissing Mine, Cobalt, Ontario

Roland Brener’s Mini Monster House (variations 1, 2, and 3)

James Kerr-Lawson’s Boston, Lincolnshire

Susan Gold’s The Specimens
