Paintings Specialty Group
Who We Are

Formed in 1980, the group has members from the United States and the international community and includes professionals from historic sites, museums, private practice, and regional centers.
What We Do
PSG activities include organizing sessions at AIC annual meetings
in addition to facilitating other regional conferences. In past years, sessions have followed overall AIC conference themes or concentrated on a unique theme often as part of joint sessions with other AIC specialty groups. PSG has an online community
where members can discuss current topics in paintings conservation. Find information about and purchase PSG publications
in our store. The Paintings Specialty Group also offers an award
for outstanding contributions to the field of paintings conservation..
How We Work
