Perspectives in Gold at Hunterian Art Gallery

Perspectives in Gold

4 April – 4 May 2014‌‌
Hunterian Art Gallery
Admission free

‌This special display features new work using gold by students from Scottish colleges, sponsored by The Scottish Goldsmiths’ Trust Precious Metal Bursary 2014.

‌The Scottish Goldsmiths Trust is a charity set up in 2000 by the Incorporation of Goldsmiths of Edinburgh to promote and support the education, art and craft of Scotland’s gold and silversmithing heritage. 

The Trust assists practicing gold and silversmiths and students of silversmithing and jewellery through projects and grants.‌

The trust gives annual Precious Metal Grants to five Scottish colleges with jewellery and silversmithing courses: City of Glasgow College, Edinburgh Co‌llege of Art, Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design, Glasgow Clyde College and The Glasgow School of Art.

The grant gives students the opportunity to work and experiment with silver and gold, developing their skills and knowledge in working with these precious materials.‌

‌To celebrate the exhibition Scottish Gold, the Scottish Goldsmiths Trust is delighted to have partnered The Hunterian to present this showcase of the work that can be produced through the Precious Metal Bursaries.
