Stage Curtain Restoration Program Begins in New Hampton

NEW HAMPTON — The New Hampton Stage Curtain Restoration Project to restore two painted stage curtains found in the New Hampton Grange Hall and the Town House will be  the  topic of a New Hampton Historical Society meeting Tuesday, October 22, 7 p.m. at the
Gordon-Nash Library.

The Director of Curtains Without Borders, Christine Hadsel, will be explaining the detailed process involved in the restoration. A hundred years ago, grand drapes and painted backdrops were the primary artistic feature of the cultural life of many Northern New England villages and towns and were found in town and grange halls, theaters and opera houses.

Curtains Without Borders is a conservation project dedicated to documenting and preserving historic painted scenery. THe program is supported in part by a grant from the New Hampshire State Council on the Arts and the National Endowment for the Arts.

The program is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served and there will be fundraising items for sale.
