Next Program Meeting:
Saturday, October 12 — 7-9:30 pm Program Meeting
Artist Series: Michael Gilbert
Michael will be presenting insights into his nearly 40-year career involving a variety of gilding and frame restoration/creation methods, including his experience in calligraphy and painting with regard to using oil and encaustic mediums, as well as discussing his current foray into creating his own paints. He possesses fascinating and extraordinarily deep knowledge with a down-to-earth, problem-solving, and yet creative, approach. You will come away learning something unique and with a fresh perspective on these traditional skills that are being passed forward into the contemporary arts.
Michael Gilbert is a gilder, carver, and frame maker. The inspiration for most of his work is the American frame designs of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries . He has been a teacher since the late 70’s, with sixteen years at the Maryland Institute College of Art, and has been integral within the Society of Gilders since 2001. He has also taught focus workshops at the Smithsonian since 2006, and has extensive education from Maryland Institute College of Art, Loyola College, and Essex Community College.
