Allegheny Metals Club was founded in May of 2015, in Pittsburgh, PA. The Club is pleased to present a group show that demonstrates an array of talent from members and a glimpse into the field of contemporary metalsmithing. Members have contributed 38 artworks made by 19 metal artists. This exhibition marks the second for the club.
With representation from traditional metalsmiths, fine jewelers, enamelists, and mixed-media artists, the Allegheny Metals Club has close to 100 members and meets monthly. Demonstrations have included hydraulic press use; surface techniques; a “hammershop,” concentration on forging, forming and raising; and pin backs. The Club has also hosted a pin swap and holiday ornament exchange.
“Coming together as colleagues in the field, the club is an environment for members to share techniques, participate in informal critique, and build community,” - Katie Rearick, the Club’s founder.
