Sherry Phillips

Conservator, Contemporary Art

Sherry Phillips has been employed at the Art Gallery of Ontario since 1989, working as the Conservator of Contemporary and Inuit Art Collections since 1996. Following an Honours BSc in microbiology and zoology at the University of Toronto, Sherry studied Art History and Art Studio before receiving her Masters of Art Conservation degree from Queen's University. Although her original focus was the conservation of paintings, working with contemporary objects and installations over the years has cultivated a working knowledge of the unusual. Anything from modern materials to electronics, traditional art materials or living systems may require her intervention for conservation treatment or preservation.
