Place: 
York

This conference to celebrate Sharon Cather’s life and achievements will take place on 16-18 April 2020 in York, in the impressive surroundings of the Tempest Anderson Hall of the Yorkshire Museum, the Hospitium (medieval guesthouse) in the famous 19th-century gardens of the Museum, and the adjacent King’s Manor of the University of York.

The conference will start at 2pm in the Tempest Anderson Hall on Thursday 16 April, and end at 6pm on Saturday 18 April.

As well as tributes to Sharon, the conference will include 18 papers by distinguished colleagues from around the world, on conservation work and related research and education in Bhutan, China, Colombia, Cyprus, Georgia, India, Israel, Italy, Korea, Switzerland, the UK, and the USA. The conference will therefore reflect the extent and importance of Sharon’s contribution internationally. It is also intended that the conference will provide a forum to take stock of the current state of wall painting conservation internationally, and to consider potentially productive developments in the future.
