Antique Adventures an Enjoyable Day!

Antique Adventures was enjoyed by many folks on a lovely September day!  Below are photos of the activities and the collections viewed.

OMHS thanks the collectors and evaluators (indoor and outdoors) and program presenters!   OMHS is grateful to the Richland County Historical Society for partnering with us for the programs. 

A very surprising outcome of the Seifert program was a Richland County resident arrived carrying a Paul Seifert painting!  It was a farm scene, framed in original frame, with all the bells and whistles of a Seifert work. The individual who brought the painting to the event can identify his grandfather, two uncles, and the children in the painting.  This was a very exciting part of the event!  Joe Kapler, curator of the Seifert exhibit for the Wisconsin Historical Society, was right there to see and give suggestions on how and what to do about the water-stains on the painting. The owners says he has kept the painting in the closet…and that is a good thing.  Now he needs to remove the wooden backing that is leaking acid into the painting and have acid-free museum board applied to protect the fragile watercolor.  It is believed that the painting was done in the 1880's.  The farm site is right down the road from another farm that was painted around the same time.  Excitement at the Antique Adventures!

If you attended the Antique Adventures, please email OMHS to let us know your opinion of the event.
