The Monterey Bay Metal Arts Guild present: Made with Love
A showcase of recent work from the studio jewelers, metal artists and sculptors of the Monterey Bay Metal Arts Guild (MBMAG) will be on display the entire month of February, 2015 at the Many Hands Gallery, 510 Bay Ave. Capitola, CA.
Many Hands Gallery specializes in art local artists and is a destination for one-of-a-kind collectibles and gifts.
The opening reception is on February 1, 2015 2-4pm
‘Made with Love’ features work from over 46 talented artists from the entire Monterey Bay Community. These artists express their unique style and let their imaginations come alive in high-karat gold, silver, steel, copper, or brass. Techniques range from traditional gold and silversmithing, forging, casting, and enameling. The main focus of the show is art jewelry but visitors will also find an array of outstanding metal art objects and sculptures.
Made with Love is the perfect opportunity to purchase a locally made piece of Art or Jewelry for your special someone for Valentine’s Day!
The Monterey Bay Metal Arts Guild (MBMAG), which started in the early 1990’s with ten people meeting in each others homes, has evolved into a highly respected entity that provides education, exhibition opportunities, support and community to its more than 100 members. From the Santa Cruz Mountains to Big Sur and beyond, we come together to share techniques and experiences.
The artists of the MBMAG are as varied as the beautiful Monterey Bay area in which we live and work. We are sculptors who make jewelry, jewelers who make sculpture, metal artists who incorporate glass and glass artists who incorporate metal. We work in media that range from high-karat gold to found objects, and the results are highly individual expressions in a great variety of materials, including metal.
The cornerstones of our guild are the excellent metal arts programs at Cabrillo College in Aptos and the Monterey Peninsula College in Monterey. Our keystones are the instructors, Theresa Lovering-Brown, Dawn Nakanishi, Carol Holaday, and Angela Gleason. Along with Cabrillo College professor emeritus Lynda Watson, these artists are our mentors and inspirations.
The work in this exhibit, “Expression in Metal”, represents recent work created MBMAG members. We are honored to be in the Many Hands Gallery to share our craft.
