Overview

T he Evergreen Museum is dedicated to the advancement of scholarship and museum practice by helping to train future art historians, historic preservations, and museum professionals. In it’s exhibit titled “Repoussé Style, Then and Now: A Celebration of the Art of Michael Israel Galmer” it featured a 20 year retrospective featuring 30 pieces of Galmer’s silverware and jewelry, displayed alongside historical examples of repoussé works from the Evergreen Museum & Library collection. In America, this style silver became associated early on with Baltimore, largely influenced by the China Trade, and became a kind of aesthetic moniker for the “Monument City”. Michael’s collection portrays the constant evolution of this classic technique with pieces of art, fashion, and home decor fit for contemporary times.
