selected lectures, presentations & demonstrations

Beginning with dedicated frame exhibitions in Santa Monica and Laguna Beach in 1996, principals of Gill & Lagodich have lectured on the subject of period frame history, fabrication, and restoration; presented walk-through gallery talks, docent and professional educator training, and conducted hands-on period frame clinics for selected museum, institutional, and private groups, as well as national arts and appraisal conferences.

Tracy Gill and Simeon Lagodich organized, curated frames, and wrote exhibition catalogues for four frame shows that traveled to bicoastal galleries, colleges, university, and two museums.

We can visit your institution or invite you to visit us. Gill & Lagodich Fine Period Frames will open our showroom and studios on request for educational purposes, including powerpoint lectures on frame history, gallery/restoration studio tours and hands-on demonstrations in gilding and frame restoration. Students from Pratt University, FIT Restoration Program, Sotheby’s Institute of Art, New York School of Interior Design, Museum associates and private art collector groups are among those who have participated on-site at G&L.
