This exhibition explores the pioneering work of Colonial Williamsburg
Upholstery Conservator Leroy Graves and is inspired by his landmark 2015 book, “Early Seating Upholstery: Reading the Evidence”, which describes in detail the investigative methods he developed and refined over an award-winning career.

The ‘Graves Approach’ has become ‘the’ method used by museums throughout the world as a non-intrusive way to restore a piece to its earliest appearance without marking or disturbing the frames or surviving upholstery.
‘Upholstery CSI’ will expose the fascinating research and conservation work that goes on behind the scenes in order to retrieve an appearance that would have been familiar to artisans and their customers two to three centuries ago,” said Ronald Hurst, Colonial Williamsburg’s Carlisle H. Humelsine chief curator andvice president for collections, conservation and museums.

We are delighted that Leroy Graves will give an introduction to the exhibition and has graciously agreed to answer questions from the VCA members.
The program will be followed by a business meeting and a reception with
refreshments provided by VCA.
