Preserving the Past for the Future
May 19, 2016, 7:30 p.m.
San Anselmo Town Council Chambers
Gawain Weaver, a professional conservator with a studio in San Anselmo, will discuss the types of photographs found in family collections, including how to identify the photographic processes and how this information can assist in dating photos. He will also discuss the physical and chemical causes of deterioration, and provide guidance on the care and preservation of photographs. Gawain will show examples of photographic conservation and restoration from complex chemical treatments to simple repairs to digital restoration.
This is a great opportunity to bring a photograph or album and have Gawain offer advice on it.
Everyone is welcome!
Refreshments will be served after the free program in the Historical Museum.
