Naguatuck Historical Society - Salem Bridge Clock - Grand Opening


195 Water St., Naugatuck, CT Phone: 860-729-9039.

May 2, 6-8pm. One of our new artifacts on display is a working Salem Bridge Clock with a reverse glass painting done by one of the Whittemores. Come to the Museum and learn about these unusual clocks with parts made right here, before we were even called Naugatuck. We will have an expert on hand to share the unique history of these clocks. Reverse Painting? Sounds like it might be more like erasing, but it is not. Let your family try their hand at this unique art technique of painting on glass, where the details go first and the background gets painted last. We won't be using real glass, but it is much harder than it looks and will give you a new appreciation for art work on each of the clocks. Admission is free for members for all First Thursdays and only $2 a person and $5 a family.
