I would like to invite anyone interested to attend the conservation

The conference will take place from August 9-12, 1998, at Queen's
University, in Kingston, Ontario, Canada, a picturesque setting on
the St. Lawrence Seaway, close to the 1,000 Islands.  The session on
Art Conservation will be on the morning of August 10th.
