We asked our members to take the challenge of showing us in a new metal art piece how they view the future after the strange and stressful year of 2020. Thank you to four very creative people who submitted their art. We announced the winners during the live online Winter Party on Sunday, January 24, 2021.

Join us for the Winter Members Party on Sunday, February 16, 2014.  The Potluck is at 12:30, with a general membership Meeting at 1:00, and finally at 1:30… Harriete.  This year’s Winter Party will be held at the Haute Enchilada Restaurant in Moss Landing, in the meeting room out back.  If you went to last year’s Winter Party, it is the same location.

Harriete Estel Berman is a California artist, jeweler, silversmith, sculptor, lecturer and educator. She will begin with a brief description of her work with examples on hand and will continue to spice things up with a lively discussion on professional development. Do you suffer from self-rejection when it comes to applying for exhibitions? Wonder how to promote your work effectively online? Want tips for the best strategies for your images, website or blog? Controversial issues? Burning topics? Or everyday professional practices that will boost your career? Nothing is too hot to Ask Harriete about.

Go to the MBMAG Facebook Group to send questions to Harriete directly and she will include it in the presentation. If you are facing an issue you can bet someone else is also.

3:30 LYNDA WATSON’S PRESENTATION on her TRIP to CHINA

Featured Artist Lynda Watson will give a talk and slide presentation on her recent trip to China.   It was an amazing experience and you will enjoy seeing metal art.

“After a trip to Southeastern China in 2008, Mary Hu was invited the Chinese government to bring 10 professional metalsmiths/jewelers to China for the purpose of observing, advising, and showing work to students and faculty at Chinese University metals programs. 

We were also there to study Maio jewelry and costume in its original, indigenous form and as it was being produced for export as tourist goods. I will show images of the artisans making both fine silver and nickel silver traditional jewelry as well as photos of museum pieces and where the Miao live and work.”  -Lynda

DON’T MISS A SINGLE MOMENT!

Thank you to Kim Solana for graciously making the room available for MBMAG on this auspicious day – Chinese New Year.
