11 a.m.

Join Sandra Rux, curator of “Wallace Nutting and the Wentworth-Gardner House,” for a gallery talk at the Wentworth-Gardner House on Saturday, June 27 at 11 a.m.  Ms. Rux will discuss the loom that appeared in a the Nutting photograph “Recreations of Our Foremothers” and compare it to the one recently given to the Wentworth Lear Historic Houses.  Are they one and the same?  She will trace the background of the donated loom and its possible connection to Nutting.  She will also demonstrate weaving on the restored loom.
