Caring for the Collection

Thanks to the continued efforts of the curator, Cooper Sheldon, and our dedicated volunteers, over 1,100 objects have been inspected and cataloged as part of a comprehensive inventory project. If progress continues at the current rate, the process should finish before the target of summer 2024. During this process the descriptive information about artifacts is added to the online searchable database and artifacts are inspected for conservation needs. Conservation is funded by donations from our patrons. In 2022, two portraits by Ammi Phillips were cleaned in preparation for exhibition. The conservation work was funded by donations from artists who have participated in Gallery SHS art shows.
