Quite a few years ago the MBMAG asked each of the members to create a small piece of work that would reflect their style. This piece would have a means to connect it on both ends and once linked together would become one chain of unique works.
We would like to start a new “Links Project” which would demonstrate each of our member’s style and personality.
The Monterey Bay Metal Arts Guild will be showing at the Art Walk in the Capitola Mall Friday June19th, 5:30-8:30 pm. There will be Hawaiian Music, Wine Tasting with Bargetto Winery and fun! Please join us, the event is free…
