Internships at Canterbury Shaker Village

From: Marc A. Williams <artcons>
Date: Monday, November 8, 1999
Joint Internships at Canterbury Shaker Village
and American Conservation Consortium, Ltd.

Canterbury Shaker Village (CSV), a National Historic Landmark, and
American Conservation Consortium, Ltd. (ACC) are co-sponsoring
several joint conservation internships. Interns will work under the
supervision of Marc Williams, President of ACC and Fellow of AIC,
both at CSV and at ACC's studio. Projects at CSV are innovative
conservation treatment of original 18th and 19th century plaster in
most areas of it's 54-room dwelling house, treatment of original
painted finishes, treatment of historic linoleum, and village-wide
storage reorganization. Projects at ACC include treatment of
furniture from nationally-known institutions, including several
early presidential homes, and treatment of horse-drawn vehicles,
including a Concord coach. Depending upon their training, experience
and aptitude, interns may be rotated among the various projects or
focused upon specific ones.

Canterbury Shaker Village, located in south central New Hampshire,
consists of twenty-five original historic buildings, dating from
1792-1939, situated on a rolling hilltop surrounded by 694 acres of
fields, woodlots and ponds. CSV provides an ideal location that is
only minutes away from lakes and trails, and only an hour from the
White Mountains and from the sites and entertainment of Portsmouth,
NH. The studio of ACC is located 50 minutes away.

Housing will be provided in one of the historic buildings at CSV. In
addition, modest stipends may be available to interns with
conservation training or experience. Applicants should be energetic,
accustomed to tedious, potentially physically demanding work, and
possess excellent dexterity, attention to detail and good judgement.
Training or experience with collections conservation and/or
architectural conservation is preferred but not required. A car is
required, and preference will be given to US citizens.

The internships are available immediately. Please send a letter of
interest, along with a copy of your resume, and three references to:
