“Reservation Roadshow” is coming back to Tamástslikt Cultural Institute this weekend.
From noon to 5 p.m. Saturday in the building’s theater, collectors and Tribal members are encouraged to bring their artifacts for appraisal and examination for potential hazardous pesticides by experts and conservators.
Conservators will offer advice on methods of preserving heirlooms, from regalia to photos.
The experts: Conservator Tom Fuller who studied at the Institute of Archaeology, London, and travels nationally for work on institutional and private collections; object appraiser Laurence Tyler, a Pacific Northwest antiques dealer and appraiser for more than 40 years; book appraiser Jack Walsdorf, who has a master’s in library science and worked as a librarian, for booksellers and as a consultant for a search service for out-of-print and hard-to-find books; and photo archivist Richard Engeman, the public historian and archivist behind Oregon Rediviva.
The event is free and open to the public. There is a limit of five items per person to be appraised. For more information, contact Randall Melton at 541-429-7740.
