Preserving The Gallery


As a fine artist, Caroline Fry never thought that she would be responsible for fixing other peoples painting. As an Art Conservationist, Penny employs some of her practical painting skills to fix and safeguard historical art treasures. In an art conservation organisation, housed at Grimwade Conservation Services, Penny regularly handed artefacts that are many centuries. PRESERVING THE GALLERY is a short 5 minute documentary that outlines the importance of art preservation for the future and why many choose to forgo a contemporary career in order to paint the past
