Justin Gare, Senior Objects Conservator will be presenting The Red Gum Bookcase: South Australia's Earliest Piece of Furniture talk at Clare Library 13 May 2021.
Justin Gare pictured at his exhibition - Kingston's 1842 Monument to Colonel Light held at Artlab Australia during SA History Festival 2019.
In September 2017, a colossal red gum bookcase over 180 years old inspired a classic ‘whodunnit’ investigation. Justin Gare will unravel the mystery, the twists and turns leading to the identification of South Australia’s oldest and most significant surviving piece of furniture.
Presented by Clare & Gilbert Valleys Library Service.
