Please join us for an informative and entertaining evening of presentations on several new approaches to paper conservation treatment. The presentations feature research on the use of gels, borane, and chelates; treatments of a heavily damaged pastel painting and historic wallpaper, and the adaptation of the historic restoration practices of Max Schweidler. Presenters include Crystal Maitland from the Canadian Conservation Institute; Rosaleen Hill from Queen's University in Kingston, Ontario; Lorraine Bigrigg of Studio TKM Associates in Massachusetts, and Kyla Ubbinck from Ubbinck Book and Paper Conservation in Ottawa. A panel discussion following the presentations will allow all in attendance to discuss current research and practice.

The Gladstone Forum is being held on a Saturday night at one of the best boutique hotels in Toronto on trendy Queen Street West: we will entertain as well as inform you! Art installations will be on view and food and beverages are available. The Gladstone supports artists year round and features provocative displays throughout the hotel. Add to the menu comfy couches and a balcony to ensure a good time! Fameless Karaoke starts at 10:30 PM and runs until 2 AM.
