William (Bill) Adair is a frame conservator, frame historian, and master gilder.  In this unusual talk, Bill Adair takes us on a spiritual journey involving water-gilded doors. He is creating water-gilded doors, with each one being set in a special, often historic location, around the world.  People are invited to write their thoughts about the door, doorways,  reminiscences, and so on, leaving a unique, meaningful tribute to the time and place.  He will tell stories about the doors’ evolving role in people’s lives.  Bill then takes us through his studio, showing his incredible collection of frames from ancient to modern. Bill was the first President of the Society of Gilders, and he discusses that along with viewers Peter Sepp and Larry Neuberg.
