Layers of Paint, Layers of History

September 22, 2018 @ 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM

Christine Thomson is a local conservator whose specialty is paint analysis. This scientific technique is used in historic buildings to help with restoration work and to share better historical information with staff and visitors alike. Ms. Thomson will talk about the importance and techniques of paint analysis and share her 2016 research findings from The House of the Seven Gables. In 2018, The Gables celebrates its 350th anniversary and this talk is complementary to the exhibit These Walls Do Talk, which opens on April 6.

This program is being offered for free in partnership with Trails and Sails.

Registration for this event is full. To be placed on the waiting list, please email, or call 978-744-0991 ext. 152.
