The one to five day workshops cover a wide variety of metal art techniques ranging from beginning metalsmithing to 3D sculptural techniques to advanced jewelry making. Many of the techniques taught cross the boundaries between sculpture and jewelry making and our artists innovate and adapt the techniques to their own unique styles and artwork.

If no upcoming workshops are listed, check back later or join the email list using the field at the bottom of this page for early notification.

A Letter from the Exhibition Organizers

The title and theme of our all member exibit is “Reflections” to be interpreted as you wish.

Monterey Bay Metal Arts Guild (MBMAG) has been invited to exhibit at the Pajaro Valley Arts (PVArts) in Watsonville, CA.

Although it is not required, we encourage you to submit narrative or story-telling work. 

Reflections   
1.  (of a surface or body) throw back (heat, light, or sound) without absorbing it.
2.  Think deeply or carefully about.

Common synonyms of reflect are: cogitate, deliberate, reason, speculate, and think. While all these words mean “to use one’s powers of conception, judgment, or inference,” reflect suggests unhurried consideration of something recalled to the mind.

Some ideas for your conception could be a collection that you have gathered such as feathers, shells, photos, et cetera. It could also be a scene or a place you have visited. 

This has been a time of reflection for us all and we would like you to tell the viewer your story. An educational component is required by PVArts and to meet this requirement a short story of your concept will accompany the work.

We will accept up to three metal art pieces. Sculpture is encouraged.  Sculpture submissions will require dimensions be provided upon submission so we can accommodate your artwork with pedestals or cases.

Your artwork which is on exhibit must stay until the end of the exhibit, even if it sells during the exhibition. Pajaro Valley Arts will coordinate with the purchaser to receive any sold artwork that is in the exhibition.

As well as exhibiting three pieces you will be able to submit up to 5 metal art pieces for the Pajaro Valley Arts gallery gift shop.  These pieces can be replaced if they sell. 

This promises to be an exciting exhibit and at long last, an opportunity to show your work.  Our last all member exhibition and sale at PVArts in 2017 was successful and well received.

Toni Danzig and Annette Nemes
Exhibit Co-Chairs

MBMAG Winter Party 2012!

Sunday January 11, 2012 we held our annual MBMAG Winter Party at the Haute Enchilada restaurant in Moss Landing, CA.

Guest speaker Emiko Oye gave us an inspiring talk on her work and creative process. We enjoyed seeing so many faces of our metal arts community.
