Artist of the Month

SHIRLEY BUESCHER

Shirley Buescher is a long-time member of Gallery 510.

“I have been drawing as long as I can remember. My favorite media are watercolor and pencil, but I enjoy working in oil, acrylic and pastel. My favorite subjects to paint are still life, flowers, and old buildings.

My education in the arts (other than appreciation of nature that God has created) has been classes through Lake Land Community College; workshops sponsored through U of I, Champaign, IL; workshops through art organizations, and art books.”

Student Artist of the Month

Should I drymount this work of art?

Drymounting is used best for posters or other less expensive works on paper because these works are meant just for your enjoyment. Drymounting works well for some photographs. This process uses heat to permanently attach the work to a mat or foamboard. If the poster or photograph has a slight wrinkle or is curled from being rolled up for some time, drymounting can smooth these out and improve the look. Photographs are often mounted to prevent any buckling.

If your artwork on paper is of value it should NOT be drymounted. This would significantly devalue your investment. Artwork should be secured in place so it doesn’t shift under the mat with archival tape that releases with heat and can be removed. In order to retain the value of a work of art it must not be damaged in any way.
