Behind the Scenes
Networking Event
Samuel Dorsky Museum of Art 
SUNY New Paltz
5:30 PM - 7:30 PM

GHHN was delighted to award a 2013 Conservation Treatment Grant on behalf of NYSCA to the SDMA for the conservation of one of the museum's most important 19th century paintings along with its period frame. The 1885 oil on board by George Inness, Keene Valley, Adirondacks, was conserved by Marie Bruno from Arte Artigianato Restauro, Inc. and its original period frame by Janine Lambers of Lambers, Inc. 

To celebrate this accomplishment, and to shed light on the art of conservation work, The Dorsky Museum is mounting a mini photo documentation exhibition of the conservation work. Along with this mini-exhibition, the conserved painting will be on exhibit and Marie Bruno will be on hand to discuss the issues she encountered when conserving this painting and the steps she followed.

Let's Talk About...
Grant Opportunities

9:30 AM - 11:30 AM


Historic Huguenot St.
9:30 AM - 11:30 AM



The world of grants can be intimidating and confusing - there are lots of forms, required documents, and sometimes the application directions are not always clear. Or, perhaps you have been successful in one grant application and are looking for other funding opportunities. Whether you have never applied for a grant or are looking for new funding avenues to explore, this roundtable is a fantastic place to start. 


Please join GHHN Executive Director Priscilla Brendler and Program Coordinator Kerry Sclafani for an informal and informational discussion about grant opportunities that are available to historical societies, libraries, archives, and museums. We'll be sharing tips and tricks we've learned along the way. We invite you to come and share your experiences and learn from your peers in the field. We hope to see you there!
