Position at Andrea Pitsch Conservation

From: Andrea Pitsch <apnyc>
Date: Tuesday, February 3, 2004
Assistant Conservator, Works on Paper
Andrea Pitsch Conservation

This permanent position is available in the next few months; the
starting date is flexible. Candidates seeking a long-term tenure
will be favored. The challenges and rewards of the position are
substantial and will leave plenty of room for individual interests
and professional growth.

Located in midtown Manhattan, APC has provided superior paper
conservation and consultation services since 1985 to an
internationally known clientele of museums, artists' estates,
galleries, and corporate and private collections. The treatments
undertaken at APC must adhere to the exacting standards of the New
York art community, which depends on us to provide the highest level
of service.

Treatments are interesting and varied; objects include fine prints,
original works of art on paper, historic maps, photographs, and
parchment.  Approaches range from routine stabilization to complex
treatments of idiosyncratic contemporary objects.

Applicants should have a degree in art conservation or equivalent,
plus two or more years' experience with paper treatments. The ideal
candidate would have additional experience with art on paper and
photographic prints. The candidate should be self-motivated, think
creatively, and desire to be a valued team member.

The job will emphasize hands-on treatment of a wide range of
objects. Responsibilities will also include examination, routine
studio maintenance, tracking workflow, and interacting with clients.
Some experience with computer databases would be helpful. The job
will provide experience with technical and creative problem-solving,
curatorial issues, and administration.

Salary will be commensurate with ability. Please direct inquiries or
letter of interest and resume to
