There’s no time like the present to get organized with best practices for documenting and storing your artwork. This workshop will cover essential inventory processes, including documentation, artwork storage, and gallery expectations (and peeves) concerning artist/artwork hand-offs.

About the presenter:
Ben Cressy studied painting and drawing at UC Santa Cruz and American University in Washington DC. He currently splits his time between painting, teaching art, and working for several San Francisco art galleries in registration, preparator, and database development capacities for galleries and artists.
