Louise Bradley, AICCM Conservation Framing SIG convener

The organizer of Art and Frame 2015 exhibition and trade fair has again very generously offered a stand to AICCM. This will be our second appearance at Art and Frame after the first successful display in Melbourne in 2013. The exhibition will be held on August 14-16, from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm at Royal Randwick, Sydney. The AICCM stand will be in the public area of the exhibition so this will be a great opportunity to showcase AICCM to both the public and the framing industry. Sophie Brown has kindly offered to coordinate the exhibition this year so if anyone would like to assist AICCM by minding the stand for up to 4 hours on any day please contact Sophie at:

We also need display items for the stand and take away material. Posters that would inform and engage the general public will be useful for the display. Posters on frame treatments, paper and painting conservation treatments and large format treatments are especially interesting to the public attending this exhibition. Please contact Sophie if you can assist by lending material.

Sophie has organized a public lecture “Framing with conservation in mind: Collaborating with conservators,” that has been included in the official seminar program. This will be an exciting event for AICCM so please help out if you can spare the time.
