Cincinnati Art Museum Behind the Scenes in Conservation: On a Closed day. Sometimes we need more space than our Conservation labs provide. Below, on a recent Monday when the museum was closed, we took over the Great Hall for the morning. We had a large contemporary painting on canvas that was due to be rolled for storage, and this was the best place to do it. Here some helpers from the Registration department are removing the dozens of tacks that secured the painting to its multi-membered stretcher. The painting was rolled face out on the large cardboard tube behind them, along with an interleaving material, then wrapped. (It’s done face-out so that the paint is not compressed in a concave orientation.) The stretcher was taken apart, as it’s designed to, and the rolled painting and stretcher were moved to storage. To exhibit the painting in the future, the stretcher will be reassembled and the painting re-stretched on it. This is a common conservation procedure with large modern paintings on canvas, though one that we always need to scheme to find floor space to perform! 12 hour ago via Facebook

Art in the Making: Watercolor

May 17, 2014 - 01:00 pm to 03:00 pm

This is a rewarding experience that can enhance artistic development. It can do so much for a child, and can also add to your own appreciation for art making. This class format was designed for children ages 6–12 accompanied by an adult who’ll actively share in the art experience. Select local artists make it fun by leading interactive classes that include a gallery tour and hands-on art activity. This month you’ll explore the exciting medium of watercolor with artist Ken Henson before creating your own beautiful painting in the studio

$10 per pair Art Museum Members, $20 per pair non-members; ($3/$6 for each additional person). Reservations required. Please call (513) 721.ARTS (2787) to purchase tickets.
