Midwest Metalsmiths Art Show

Great Success on October 11 & 12, 2019

Congregational Church Webster Groves

What a great success! This was a new venue for our annual art show. We have only heard good reviews. Visitor/shoppers liked our new venue and the artists are happy with the change. We are looking forward to a repeat performance in 2020. Thanks to all the members that made the show a success! More than anything, thank you to all of the wonderful St. Louis people that came out and attended the show. Thank You!

July 2019 Midwest Metalsmiths Gathering

Day Enterprises (stone dealer) sets up for sales

and member problem solving session.

    Rich and Debbie Day visited St. Louis and put out their vast array of precious stones, semi-precious stones, rough cut stones, and books for all MM members to do some serious shopping. It got real quiet as members admired, planned, and imagined new works around the seven tables that were weighed down with stones. Web Stie:

    When the shopping was finished the members settled in around a circle of tables and discussed metalsmithing problems they may be having, new resources they had to share, and metalsmithing tricks. 

     Leigh Roberts and Kathy Craddock have been helping a jewelry artist friend, who recently passed away, clear out a studio and brought several boxes of tools and equipment to sell at bargain prices. Some members at the meeting went home with some real bargains!

Urban Chestnut

On May 4, 2019, members of Midwest Metalsmiths meet to socialize, eat, drink, and share our latest metal projects around a long table at Urban Chestnut. The Urban Chestnut is one of the many quality brew houses in St. Louis. It was a great time of sharing and conversation. Thanks to Leigh Roberts, our President, for organizing a great social event.
