Red Hook, NY
Abigail Mack’s art conservation practice, located in New York’s Hudson Valley, focuses on modern and contemporary art with specific interest in large scale and monumental sculpture. Ms. Mack holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree and a Master’s Degree in Art Conservation from State University of New York College at Buffalo. One of her specific interests is striking a balance between the preservation of the physical object and the artists’ intent for appearance. As an extension of her work, Ms. Mack is actively involved in an ongoing research project that aims to develop more durable coatings for painted outdoor sculpture. This project includes the collaborative efforts of the Calder Foundation, The Tony Smith Estate, Nevelson Foundation, Getty Conservation Institute, National Gallery of Art, and the U.S. Army Research Laboratory.
