Workshop: One-day session, repeated October 21, 2014 and October 24,
2014 at the National Gallery of Art

A one-day, hands-on workshop will explore the chemistry of platinum
and palladium photographs and consider how variations in processing
affect the appearance and permanence of the prints.  The workshop
will be held twice and will be led by Christopher Maines,
Conservation Scientist, Scientific Research Department, NGA, and
Mike Ware, Photographic Materials Chemistry Consultant to the NGA.

Includes box lunch.  Workshop registration fee:
    $220 AIC members;
    $320 non-members

This workshop program is designed for practicing photograph
conservators and photograph conservation students.  Participants
will be selected to achieve a balance of senior and emerging
professionals and institutional and private practice.  Experience,
demonstrated need, geographic reach, and opportunity to disseminate
information gained will be considered.  With the exception of places
for student and emerging professionals, preference will be given to
AIC Professional Associate and Fellow members.

Review will begin February 15, 2014, with notifications expected by
March 20, 2014.  Later applications will be considered, if space is
available.  To apply for a space in the workshop, please fill out
