Layers of Paint, Layers of History

April 28 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

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