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.
Zoom Virtual Meeting
June 13th at 11 a.m.
Let's see how many of us we can gather up for a virtual meeting. It will be so great to see everyone's face, even though we can't get together physically at this time. Get ready for the Zoom meeting by signing up for Zoom online at zoom.us. Catherine Geyer, our new 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. Mark your calendars now. This is our chance to get together!
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.
