The Society for Midwest Metalsmiths (SMM) has awarded three $1,500 merit scholarships for the year 2011. A complimentary one-year membership to SMM for 2012 was also included with each award to expose students to the metal guild and its opportunities and support systems for practicing metalsmiths. 

 

SMM sent out 52 application packets to colleges and universities in its 12 state Midwest Region – North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska, Kansas, Minnesota, Iowa, Missouri, Wisconsin, Illinois, Michigan, Indiana, and Ohio.  15 entries were submitted (an almost 30% response!)

 

SMM is pleased to announce the 2011 recipients. Their work stood out among the high quality body of images that were submitted.

Congratulation to the winners of the 2011 Metal Inclination!  Awesome work by all!  DIY to those editing the site.  When clicking on the image Chao-Hsien Kuo's winning piece it went to Davina Romanski winning piece and Davina image did not work.  The website look great, though.

Invisible:VisAble, curated by artist Leisa Rich, is an art exhibition that features several artists whose art works are informed by their challenges. It is to be held in Atlanta in April, 2015 at Mason Fine…See More
