    Join AIC's Wooden Artifacts Group for its new speaker series

    Join the Wooden Artifacts Group for the inaugural session of its online webinar series. Dr. Adam Bowett will present on Exotic Woods and the Growth of Empire from 1600-1900. A discussion will follow with Q&A from the audience. 

    This presentation looks at the way in which British commercial and colonial policy shaped the availability of exotic furniture woods to British furniture-makers. It is a story that runs in parallel with the growth of British maritime trade and the expansion of its colonial empire. Above all it was competition with other colonial powers – Holland, France, Spain and Portugal – which was the primary determinant of which woods were imported from which parts of the world, and at what date. Trade with North America is also considered, especially the development of timber imports from Canada and the United States in the 19th century.

    This event is open to WAG and AIC members for free. The Zoom webinar will have automated captioning in English.

    Online, self-study content available until January 1, 2025

    This online program provides access to talks that were presented during the in-person symposium that took place October 31-November 2, 2023, at the National Gallery of Art in Washington, DC.

    For roughly 150 years, people have been accustomed to seeing photomechanical prints on a daily basis. Prints exist in a variety of milieus with multiple variations over time, use, and geography. Historic and contemporary examples are prevalent in museums, libraries, archives, and personal collections worldwide. Photomechanical prints were developed to fill many needs including practical and economical methods for mass reproduction, techniques to facilitate the simultaneous printing of images and text, increased image permanence, a perception of increased truthfulness and objectivity, and an autonomous means of artistic expression. They exist at the intersections of numerous disciplines: photography and printmaking, functional and artistic practices, the histories of photography and the graphic arts, and the specialties of paper and photograph conservation.

    The program will provide an opportunity for conservators, curators, historians, scientists, collections managers, catalogers, archivists, librarians, educators, printmakers, artists, and collectors to share and explore all aspects of photomechanical printing. The resulting advancement of our collective understanding of these ubiquitous but under-researched materials will allow for new interpretations and improved approaches to their collection, interpretation, preservation, treatment, and display.

    Content available until January 1, 2025.


    Funding for this program comes from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation fund for Collaborative Workshops in Photograph Conservation and the Foundation for Advancement in Conservation (FAIC) Endowment for Professional Development. FAIC relies on your contributions to support these and its many other programs.
