Description: Karen Zukor of Zukor Art Conservation specializes in the repair and preservation of art and artifacts on paper - prints, drawings, watercolors, pastels, documents, maps, manuscripts, and rare books. In tandem with SFCB's exhibition Turning Over An Old Leaf: Contemporary Palm Leaf Work In South and Southeast Asia, this presentation will focus on the paper conservation and preservation work Karen has undertaken in Haiti and India, as well as some of the challenges of working outside of one’s own studio.

She has been responsible for many collections - including fine art, archival material, maps, documents, and rare books - held both in private hands and at institutions.
