Continuing education class for Insurance Professionals

On April 17, 2012 I held two continuing education classes for insurance professionals hosted by Dry Concepts, at their spacious offices, located at 4190 South University Drive Davie, FL 33328, Tel:(954) 370-7778.

As usual both sessions were filled to capacity and in all, over sixty individuals attended the two three hour sessions, one held in the morning and the other after lunch. The course material addressed both technical and ethical topics, mostly unfamiliar to most attendees and was the source of much animated discussion among them. I usually incorporate a few hands-on demonstrations into the talks demonstrating the cleaning of oil paintings and the repair of works of art on paper. Attendees  find my classes a pleasant way to fulfill their CEC requirement and further their knowledge on how to handle claims which involve art and collectibles.

Continuing education credits are required by the State of Florida for insurance professionals in order to maintain their licensing as adjusters and agents.  For the past number of years I have been presenting specialized course material, which I developed for classes such as the ones held at Dry Concepts every few months.

Dry Concepts offers a full range of cleaning and restoration services in addition to offering continuing education classes on a number of related topics including mold remediation, cleaning of rugs and appraising. Contact them for a full class schedule and to make a reservation for an upcoming session.

We at ConservArt understand the complex issues relating to fine art and collectibles: it’s our business. In a highly specialized field like the conservation and restoration of works of art, we have the skills and resources to interact with the most sophisticated art expert or collector. With knowledge, logic and tact, difficult claims are routinely resolved to the satisfaction of all parties.

Luxury Meets Style


January 14, 2008 (BOCA RATON, FL) — ConservArt, Inc., master frame makers and art conservators, has recently put the finishing touches on AutoNation’s newly constructed Lexus of Palm Beach store with the addition of nearly 200 pieces of art.

“Driven to be the Best,” AutoNation built their newest facility preserving their ideals of style and luxury associated with the Lexus brand. The ambiance created by the designers of the Lexus of Palm Beach facility provides an exceptional and memorable experience for visitors and clients, distinguishing this dealership from any other Lexus location.

To provide final additions to the brand new luxury facility, AutoNation, America’s largest automotive retailer, sought out a reliable company that could seamlessly carry forward the design concept of a new facility and had a performance record of delivering quality products on short notice and within budget. ConservArt, Inc., master frame makers and art conservators, was easily selected as the best company for the job.

“We took just over a month from the time of the preliminary discussion until the completion of final installation.” said George Schwartz, Director of ConservArt. “It was a treat to work with the seasoned professionals at AutoNation who allowed me to draw on my experience and gave me the freedom to present and implement my vision for this exceptional facility.”

All parties were pleased by the major transformation created by the installation. The modern, non-representational abstract artwork adorned with simple, yet elegant black and silver frames added color and sophistication to the already lavish environment. Paying homage to the rich historical heritage of the Palm Beach area, home to Lexus of Palm Beach, a collection of vintage photographs of of the area were located, enlarged and framed to add geographic context and a hint of the “old world” to the inviting interior.

“Having worked on countless projects over the years, Lexus of Palm Beach will always stand out as an example of what can be achieved with decorative artwork.” Schwartz said. “The polished marble floors, the opulent dark woodwork and the granite wainscoting trimmed with stainless steel, appeared to be even more luxurious after all the artwork was installed.”
