New Exhibition: All That Glitters

We are pleased to announce our newest exhibition, All that Glitters: The Society of Gilders, an installation in partnership with The Albin Polasek Museum!

The Albin Polasek Museum invited members of the Society of Gilders to submit finished pieces and works in progress.  The exhibition aims to reflect The Society of Gilders’ mission “to preserve traditional gilding skills and techniques and to promote the highest standards in the practice of gilding.”  A few demonstrations throughout the exhibit are not to be missed!

The Albin Polasek Museum & Sculpture Gardens is located in Winter Park, Florida, and the exhibit runs from December 13, 2022, to April 16, 2023.

This exhibition is supported by the United Arts of Central Florida and the Florida Division of Cultural Affairs.

Gallery Reception will be on January 24, 2023

Welcome to the Society of Gilders Official Website

The Society of Gilders is a non-profit educational organization devoted to the art and craft of gilding. Our mission is to preserve traditional gilding skills and techniques and promote the highest standards in gilding.

Our members use gilding in all its applications, including architecture, fine art, framing, signage, and manuscript illumination. The organization is a valuable resource for gilders, restorers, conservators, craftsmen, and all those interested in the gilding arts. Our classes and conferences bring gilders from around the globe to learn, discuss and share. Our community projects give back to the community while fostering gilding skills.
