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

An Evening with Cameron Silver

May 05, 2014 - 07:00 pm to 10:00 pm

WHERE:
Evolution Studio: 1645 Blue Rock Street, Northside

Tickets are limited. Please call (513) 721.ARTS (2787) to reserve tickets.

 

Meet L.A.’s renowned King of Vintage. Collector, stylist to the stars, and author Cameron Silver owns Decades, a high-end vintage boutique in Los Angeles. Named one of Time magazine’s “25 Most Influential Names and Faces in Fashion” in 2002, Silver has dressed A-list celebrities such as Nicole Kidman, Jennifer Lopez and Renee Zellweger in upscale vintage designs. He is a favorite pundit on E! Entertainment and Access Hollywood and has written about fashion for Harpers Bazaar (UK), C Magazine, Departures, Style.com, and others.

 

Silver will be signing his book Decades: A Century of Fashion, now in its second edition. Filled with lavish photography of fashion from 1900 to today, Silver commits all his sartorial knowledge to paper in this oversized, visually stunning book: ten chapters, each devoted to the iconic looks of a decade.

 

Featured will be a sneak peek at the exhibition Rudi Gernreich: The Total Look. Curated by Silver for MOCA, L.A., this exhibition looks at the creative collaboration between 1960s California designer Rudi Gernreich, his model/muse Peggy Moffitt, and William Claxton, Gernreich’s photographer. The exhibition opens at the Cincinnati Art Museum February 28th, 2015.

 

Join us on May 5 at Tony Tiemeyer’s Evolution studio, 1645 Blue Rock Street in Northside from 7 to 10 p.m.

 

Tickets are $100 and include a one year membership to Friends of Fashion; an affiliated support group for the Fashion Arts Department at the Cincinnati Art Museum.

Tickets are limited. Please call (513) 721.ARTS (2787) to reserve tickets.

 

All proceeds benefit acquisitions for the Cincinnati Art Museum’s Fashion Arts Department.
