All About Bronze: From Foundry to Gallery
 
Registration Information
June 9, 2017 | 9:00am - 4:00pm
New York City, NY

 

Join us for a full day program all about bronze sculpture! The program will start at Modern Art Foundry in where we will view a bronze pour and meet with Foundry President Jeffrey Spring, who will lead a tour and discussion of the facility.

In the afternoon, Ron Cavalier will give a lecture at the Appraisers Association office. He will cover a wide range of topics including: the most widely used casting technique of the past 100 years; how mold-making techniques, metallurgy and patinas are used to achieve certain results; ways in which sculpture is reproduced, and how to identify the differences; restoration practices and their impact on value; and edition sizes, costs, and pricing.

Ron will also focus on the challenges sculptors face today when their works are copied overseas and wind up being sold in the States—an enormous challenge to many sculptors working today and to appraisers in determining value.
