Bristol Museum and Art Gallery
As many will know, Bristol is a City with a rich cultural offering and many well established Paintings Conservation studios, making it an ideal place for BAPCR members to visit. Some areas of the City have undergone a transformation in recent decades with new public art spaces created. Several Bristol-based conservators have generously agreed to open their doors to us and we have planned a two-day programme of conservation studio visits for our members.
