Welcoming all Midwest metal artists, jewelers, makers or those interested in all forms of metal arts. Through workshops, social gatherings, scholarships and other enrichment opportunities, we are able to encourage artistic development, raise awareness and promote metalsmithing throughout the Midwest region.
We have a new President!
Midwest Metalsmiths embrace many aspects of metalwork: enameling, jewelry, sculpture, blacksmithing, and vessels as well as educators, and gallery owners. Visit the individual member's page to acquaint yourself with the depth of talent and the broad use of metalsmithing skills. Meet Our Artists
Keeping our distance, yet keeping in touch.
Zoom Studio Tour
August 5, 2020 at 5:30 p.m.
Kelly Miller, MM's current Secretary and artist extraordinaire, is opening her studio to all of us on Zoom. She will show us around using her phone camera and then sit down for a Q&A. Visit zoom.us and create your account so you can join in. Catherine Geyer, our President, will be sending out some reminders before the meeting with a code and password to join the meetup. We are looking forward to seeing members from near and far. It is fun to see everyone's face and check in with friends. The Studio Tour for July was a great success and we had a great turn out. Put this on your calendar and join in.
We are sad to announce the cancellation of
Midwest Metalsmiths Art Show
October 16 & 17, 2020
Congregational Church Webster Groves
Artist have been refunded their booth fees.
Please visit our Gallery Page to view our
member's work. Many of our members have
lost all of their shows and therefore their
income for 2020. If you need a gift or something
special for yourself our artists will be glad to
hear from you and help you.
Midwest Metalsmith members would
appreciate your support.
All 2020 Workshops have been cancelled.
The Barbara Minor Workshop has been rescheduled to March 4, 5, 6, & 7, 2021. If anyone signed up for this workshop would like a refund, please contact Wendy Walsh. The remainder of the scheduled workshops have been cancelled. We are in talks with those instructors for dates in 2021.
No physical meetings scheduled at this time.
Due to the Corona Virus Pandemic we have no meetings scheduled throughout 2020. We hold a majority of our meetings at Maryville University. Because Maryville University is now shut down, as are all schools, they are not scheduling any events (ours or anyone's meetings) at the school. We are looking at having a "get together" as soon as we are able and restaurant type facilities are up and running. Until then stay distant, stay well, and we will be communicating any changes for gatherings as we are able. Have fun at the workbench.
