The Garman Art Conservation Department hosted faculty and student guests from Cornell University on Friday, March 8, for a lecture and tour of the Buffalo State University facilities.

Fiona Beckett, associate professor of paintings conservation, and Renata Gumkowska, graduate fellow in paintings conservation (Class of 2025), gave a joint lecture on the research, technical analyses, and treatment of three paintings from the Carl and Marilynn Thoma Foundation’s Art of the Spanish Americas collection. The paintings are part of master’s projects involving several graduate students including Grace Garrity (Class of 2023) and Daniela González-Pruitt (Class of 2024). The lecture was incorporated as part of a Cornell University art history class, Colonial Connectivities: Curating the Art of the Spanish Americas, instructed by Ananda Cohen-Aponte and Andrew Weislogel.

Two of the paintings treated by the Garman Art Conservation Department will be exhibited at Cornell’s Herbert F. Johnson Museum of Art in 2024.

Following the lecture, the group was led on an in-depth tour of the conservation labs, where current graduate students highlighted their projects. Cornell students were able to engage in meaningful discussions with current conservation graduate students about the conservation of cultural heritage.
