The challenge

This month, we're shaking things up and diving into the world of idioms. We’re inviting Partner artists to create their visual interpretation of the saying "All that glitters is not gold", and we're adding a little extra fun: make your title resonate with the saying! 



You have a month to submit your Print for this challenge, giving you until March 15th. The next day, your work will be featured in a Twitter thread and added to this post.

Be sure to share your submission on X/Twitter and tag @trygamma and #glitterprints so we don’t miss it! 


About the idiom

In short, "All that glitters is not gold" means that not everything that looks precious or true turns out to be so.

The expression originated in or around the 12th century, and may date back to Aesop. The Latin is Non omne quod nitet aurum est. However, the current form of the idiom, which employs the word "glister" rather than "glitter", comes from William Shakespeare's "Merchant of Venice".

The idiom was since referenced in Tolkien's The Fellowship of the Ring, Led Zeppelin's Stairway to Heaven, Bob Marley's Get up, stand up, and many more including Marylin Manson who turned it into "All that glitters is cold".
