“Metamorphosis: Works in Metal,” an exhibit by The Creative Metal Arts Guild of greater Portland, will be on view at the Multnomah Arts Center beginning February 7.  Jewelry and sculpture are featured.   “Metamorphosis, a complete change of form, structure, or substance, is a theme that encourages innovation and self-reflection,” explains show designer Madeleine Moore, Vice President of the CMAG Board.  “This exhibit truly showcases the exceptional array of skills, experiences, and backgrounds our members bring to their daily art practices,” says CMAG President, Rachel Morris.  An opening reception will be held in the gallery on Friday, February 7, 7-9pm. The show ends March 3 at 5pm.

The Creative Metal Arts Guild (CMAG) is a not-for-profit organization of metal artists who share a common passion for learning, creation, innovation and community.  They rely on volunteer members – artists, makers, metalsmiths, jewelers, sculptors, hobbyists, business owners – to propel each other’s work forward.  Their mission is to cultivate excellence in the metal arts through education, advocacy and community for members during all stages of their development.  CMAG meets at 7pm on the third Tuesday of every month at the Multnomah Arts Center to discuss and demonstrate aspects of metalworking and art as a business.  Visitors are welcome but are asked to become members by their third visit.

The Multnomah Arts Center (MAC) provides excellent arts education in the visual and performing arts at an affordable cost to students of all ages.  We offer programs in dance, theatre, music, drawing, painting, ceramics, textiles, jewelry/metalsmithing, printmaking, photography, literary arts and more.  Programs run year-round, and scholarships are available.  For more information about MAC or the nonprofit support organization, Multnomah Arts Center Association, call 503.823.2787 or visit www.MultnomahArtsCenter.org.
