Historical Society of Woodstock Zoom event
September 29 @ 7:00 pm
Enthusiasm for the rarely-seen Fine Art Collection of the Historical Society of Woodstock is growing along with the Historical Society’s resolve to restore as much artwork as possible to its original glory. Two recently-restored paintings, Portrait of Hervey White (c.1926) by Arnold Blanch and Landscape (c.1914) by Edmund B. Rolfe are attracting attention in their renewed resplendence at the Eames House Museum, 20 Comeau Drive.
On Thursday, September 29 at 7 p.m., the fine art conservator who achieved the restoration, Nadia Ghannam of Mount Kisco, and American art historian Bruce Weber will give a presentation via Zoom. Bruce will discuss the works’ historical and aesthetic importance, followed by Nadia’s description of her treatment of the two pictures (and their antique frames). Their discourse will be followed by a conversation with the audience. To register and receive a link to the free Zoom event, email: email@example.com.
