Kress Conservation Fellowship in Asian Paintings
NEDCC’s 2015-2016 Kress Conservation Fellow in Asian Paintings is Amy Chen, a graduate of Tainan National University of the Arts, Taiwan, where she earned an MA in Restoration of Letters, Cultural Relics, and Eastern Paintings.
The Conservation Fellowship is made possible by the Samuel H. Kress Foundation and administered by the Foundation of the American Institute for Conservation (FAIC).
Amy Chen's fellowship training provides an advanced level of expertise in the field of Asian Painting Conservation, and helps develop judgement and flexibility in treating a variety of objects and artifacts in all media on paper, including Asian scrolls (kakejiku), screen (byobu), prints (ukiyo-e) and Japanese or Chinese bound volumes.
Amy has just returned from a two-month training at the Nishio Conservation Studio (NCS) in Washington DC, where she gained hands-on experience under the supervision of NCS President and Senior Conservator Yoshi Nishio, Senior Conservator Kyoichi Itoh, and Assistant Conservators Pei-Ching Liu and Shu-Han Chang.
NEDCC and the Nisho Conservation Studio have partnered to provide quality care and professional conservation treatment of Japanese, Chinese, and Korean art. The partnership has made NEDCC and Nishio Conservation Studio an ideal training opportunity for conservators specializing in Asian Art.
