Just a reminder that the next VCA meeting is less than one week away! We will be meeting virtually (Please contact Laurie and Jennifer for Zoom link: membership at virginiaconservationassociation dot org) on Thursday, November 18th at 6:30 pm. There will be a members’ meeting in addition to a presentation by Howard Sutcliffe, principal conservator and director of River Region Costume and Textile Conservation, a private practice with studios in Arley, Alabama and Nashville, Tennessee. Howard will present about two of his recent projects. One involves the conservation of John Marshall’s Supreme Court robes composed of highly-degraded silk for Preservation Virginia. The other is the treatment of a Natalia Goncherova-designed cape that belonged to Marjorie Meriwether Post for the Hillwood Museum in Washington D.C. Please join us for this exciting double-feature presentation in textiles conservation!
See you Thursday!
