Ever wanted to feel a piece of gold leaf? Or gild a frame? Or watch as a conservator inpaints losses on a painting? Stop by the Lowy booth at the 2011 Architectural Digest Home Design Show and these dreams, and many more, can come true! This year’s show runs from March 17th through March 20th. Lowy can be found at booth #436. Learn more about the show here: http://www.archdigesthomeshow.com/
Lowy has launched a brand new website dedicated to our art conservation department! You can now reach both sites with one click at http://www.lowyonline.com, and just select your destination. (Sounds a little like a trip to the beach, doesn’t it?)
Well we don’t have a beach but there are super exciting features such as the ask a Lowy conservator section: submit your question and check back on the site for an answer from a genu-ine Lowy conservator. And much much more!! Check it out for yourself and please send feedback!!
Picasso, Monet, Pollock, or even a Van Dyck. You probably know we’ve framed works by these great artists, but what you may not know is that we’ve touched their art in another, equally important way: through conservation.
For over 100 years, Lowy has been a leader in the field of conservation. We’ve done work for many of the great museums, private collectors and galleries. Today, our talented team is led by Chief Conservator Bill Santel and Senior Conservator Lauren Rich who together offer over 50 years of academic and practical experience.
Our conservators combine true artistic talent with the latest science and technology, and are dedicated to the preservation of works of art using the most reversible and least invasive, yet effective techniques. This approach has earned Lowy a reputation for the highest ethical and professional standards.
We hope you enjoy the video and we would welcome and appreciate your thoughts and comments.
So we decided it was high time for Lowy to join the age of technology, to step up from its old school ways and start anew in the twenty-first century. And what better way to start than with its very own blog! In this blog, we will explore various aspects of the company, using pictures and video to help further understand “how things happen” here at Lowy. Not having an art background, working at Lowy has been an educational process for me, and frankly, I find things here completely interesting and surprising. I hope you’ll be just as intrigued and want to come back again and again to view our further posts, which will be coming on a regular basis.
