Event Description

“MAG 2067 - Crafting the Future”

MAG celebrated its 60th anniversary in 2007 and we wondered what it would be like to look 60 years into the future. As no one has a crystal ball we decided to give you several possible options of what Canada would be like in 2067.
Did you know that in the year 2067 Canada is celebrating its bicentennial? It seems so far away but what changes to our economy, lifestyle and environment would affect our day to day living. How would the Metal Arts Guild have changed, evolved? For the call for entry we have developed five (5) possible timelines of the future in Canada in 2067.
We invite you to pick one or two different scenarios and submit a piece or pieces, for each of the possible futures containing a significant amount of metal, but not excluding gemstones, pearls, glass, etc., reflecting the theme and send the work along with an accompanying essay, 150 words or less, to explain your interpretation. The competition is open to all MAGC members in good standing, both professional and student members. Each entry will be judged on its craftsmanship, design and responsiveness to the theme.

Submission requirements, essays and procedures available on-line at Show 2009

Deadline for entries: Friday, 5:00 PM, Oct 9th, 2009

Entry fee: $35.00

Exhibition: Oct 31st to Nov 19th, 2009 - Arta Gallery, Distillery District, 55 Mill St, Toronto Canada

Opening reception and costume party - Sat Nov 7th, 2009 from 5:00 to 7:00
