All That Glitters: The Society of Gilders

Explore the ancient art of gilding in this illuminating and educational exhibition featuring the art, objects, and processes of The Society of Gilders.

Gilding or “gilt,” is a decorative technique for applying fine gold leaf or powder to solid surfaces such as wood, stone, or metal to give a thin coating of gold. Precious objects, art, and architectural elements have been gilded by ancient Greeks, Roman, Chinese, and Egyptian cultures for centuries. This knowledge was further transmitted throughout influential European art periods and can be seen in innumerable master works of art. The Polasek Museum is delighted to partner with The Society of Gilders for this glorious behind-the-scenes look at this historic medium. The Society of Gilders is an international and professional association devoted to the art and craft of gilding, whose educational mission is to preserve traditional gilding skills and techniques, and to promote the highest standards in the practice of gilding. The exhibition will showcase some of their project examples and contemporary art created by its members.
