—  The Estate of Ruth Asawa


“For the past five years, Ria has conserved paintings that were done by Ruth Asawa who used whatever materials were at hand while she was a student at Black Mountain College.  It has required research into materials, finishes, and the underlying ground, and well as detailed and thoughtful plans to restore the work. Ria's conservation treatments have been stellar, returning fragile works to stable condition, while protecting the artist's intention. Ria's advice and expertise has breathed new life into important work that can now be safely traveled and exhibited. Many thanks! ”
