Visiting Artist Series Brings Leading Blacksmiths and Metalsmiths to CMA
Downstate New York’s growing center for workshops in the metal arts announces new opportunities in early 2015 for beginners and advanced students to work with a first-in-class instructor in blacksmithing and small metals.
PRLog - Jan. 30, 2015 - FLORIDA, N.Y. -- The Center for Metal Arts has invited a series of fine metals artists to hold exciting new workshops in blacksmithing and small metals in 2015. The year begins with five special offerings: Mokume-gane with Dan Neville, Blacksmithing for the Sculptor with Fred Crist, A Spatula Worth Flipping Over with Seth Gould, Door Knocker with Haley Woodward, and Collaborative Sculpture with Jake James. Beginning to advanced level students will learn from the masters through hands-on work, demos, and discussion. These project-based workshops are a practice in process and technique for students to incorporate into their own studio work.
Visiting artist workshops through the summer include Custom Clasps with Alison Antelman, Foldforming for Vessels with Charles Lewton-Brain, Raising with Dan Neville, and Salt Etching Steel with Ben Dory. In the fall, look for Chasing and Repousse with Jason York and an opportunity to learn from metalsmith Tom Muir.
The visiting artist series is part of CMA's ongoing mission to add diverse topics and talents to the foundation curriculum. The small group setting allows direct one-on-one studio time with a skilled contemporary metals artist, allowing each student to work from the skill level they bring to the class. Read more...
