“Decorative Painting on Wood and Metal”
by the Lakeville Historical Commission
"Decorative Painting on Wood and Metal" is sponsored by the Lakeville Historical Commission in its continued effort to expand the public's knowledge on a variety of topics and their connection to events and trends over time. Decorative painting is commonly referred to as "tole". Its beginnings go back to prehistoric cave paintings, then moves through civilizations until we get to our current time period. This exhibit focuses on only two surface mediums, wood and metal. The skills of the artisan can vary greatly. Some of the painting is free hand and other items are stenciled. Many items were in frequent use and show it! We are always interested in loaned items for the two months. Please contact LHC Secretary Nancy LaFave if you would like to share an item. .
