Farnsworth Art Museum, 16 Museum Street in Rockland, will host a talk by Johanna Moore in the museum’s auditorium on Thursday, August 15, from 2 to 3 p.m. about the history of American picture frame design. 

Moore will show how frame designs transformed through time, with a particular emphasis on Maine history and frame makers. Artist and sign painter William Matthew Prior and artists Dorothy Emmons, Marguerite Zorach, James Fitzgerald and Vivian Akers will be among those discussed. Johanna Moore is an artist, gilder, frame maker and conservator with more than 30 years’ practice in Maine. Her work is on view in the museum’s exhibition “The Screen Show” through September.
