The artwork for the Richard Bell: Uz vs. Them show arrived yesterday in two 750 pound crates. They are sitting in the galleries being "acclimatized." Bell is an award-winning Australian artist of aboriginal descent whose work addresses some of the inequalities in Australian society, and by extension, others. We ;need extra help to handle those huge crates!
At the same time, we are preparing three works of art to be on loan to the Speed. Wanting each piece to look its best, Art Preparator Hubert Burton was making sure the frame was in good repair on Emile Bernard's Portrait of Madelaine, the Artist's Sister, 1889.
