You are cordially invited to an informative early evening lecture entitled:

Challenges of the Art of Stained Glass Restoration and Conservation
by Roberta Rosa

Sunday, June 15 at 4:30 p.m.
Doors Open at 4:15

Lecture to be held at First Parish Meetinghouse, 19 Town Square, Plymouth, MA

Roberto is a nationally recognized and award winning stained glass restoration specialist. He has been Vice President of Serpentino Stained Glass of Needham since 1988, and his firm was awarded the contract to restore First Parish’s historically significant and unique stained glass windows. Rosa studied art at the “Liceo Artistico Massini” in Rome, Italy, from 1983-1986.

Join us to hear a basic, brief introduction on stained glass in general, then briefly about Tiffany and his studio.

He will then move on to challenges they find in restoration and conservation of stained glass and discuss proper conservation methods. He also will be showing some images of the windows from First Parish Plymouth Meetinghouse, what they encountered and how they are repairing them.

This is the second in a series of four free lectures in 2014 offered by the
First Parish Restoration Committee.
