Assemblyman Lavine visited Jonathan Sherman as the Sherman Art Conservation Studio on Tuesday November 24, 2015, to “pay tribute to one of our most successful and unique small businesses.”
The Sherman Art Conservation Studio’s primary purpose is to conserve and preserve artwork through procedures such as cleaning and canvas repair so that they can continue to be enjoyed for generations.
The Studio has been owned and operated by Jonathan Sherman since 1982. Sherman Art has serviced some of the most prestigious art institutions, including the Hecksher Museum, the Hofstra Museum, Old Westbury Gardens, Sagamore Hill National Historic Site and Raynham Hall.
In addition to the restoration work that the studio has done on canvass works of art, Mr. Sherman has also restored murals at Radio City Music Hall and the Theodore Roosevelt Executive Building in Mineola.
“This is the first of a series of visits to small businesses that make our community unique” said Assemblyman Lavine. “I had my own small business for many years and have a real sense of the challenges. Because small businesses are critical to our economy, I am very pleased to focus attention on our friends and neighbors who are the foundations of our community.”
