  • 40 Under 40: The Next Generation of American Metal Artists

    Jul 23rd, 2019
    All-day Event
    374 Metal Museum Drive, Memphis, TN 38106

    To continue the celebration of the Museum’s 40th Anniversary, 40 Under 40 explores the next generation of influential American metal artists. This exhibition represents multiple areas of the field, including forging, casting, furniture design, jewelry, sculpture, hollowware, enamel, and toolmaking. As the Museum reflects on the previous 40 years, it sets the direction for the future by identifying the artists to watch as their careers flourish.

    If one thing can be said about the future of the metal arts field, it is that it is brimming with innovative, diverse artists whose passion for artistic excellence is only matched by their dedication to process and craftsmanship. With a nod to the ways new generations of artists are interacting with their world, the exhibition includes information regarding the artists’ social media platforms, including their Instagram and Twitter handles, allowing visitors to continue to follow the artists’ careers once they leave the gallery.

  • 40 Under 40: The Next Generation of American Metal Artists

    Jul 31st, 2019
    All-day Event
    374 Metal Museum Drive, Memphis, TN 38106

    To continue the celebration of the Museum’s 40th Anniversary, 40 Under 40 explores the next generation of influential American metal artists. This exhibition represents multiple areas of the field, including forging, casting, furniture design, jewelry, sculpture, hollowware, enamel, and toolmaking. As the Museum reflects on the previous 40 years, it sets the direction for the future by identifying the artists to watch as their careers flourish.

    If one thing can be said about the future of the metal arts field, it is that it is brimming with innovative, diverse artists whose passion for artistic excellence is only matched by their dedication to process and craftsmanship. With a nod to the ways new generations of artists are interacting with their world, the exhibition includes information regarding the artists’ social media platforms, including their Instagram and Twitter handles, allowing visitors to continue to follow the artists’ careers once they leave the gallery.

    374 Metal Museum Drive, Memphis, TN 38106

    To continue the celebration of the Museum’s 40th Anniversary, 40 Under 40 explores the next generation of influential American metal artists. This exhibition represents multiple areas of the field, including forging, casting, furniture design, jewelry, sculpture, hollowware, enamel, and toolmaking. As the Museum reflects on the previous 40 years, it sets the direction for the future by identifying the artists to watch as their careers flourish.

    If one thing can be said about the future of the metal arts field, it is that it is brimming with innovative, diverse artists whose passion for artistic excellence is only matched by their dedication to process and craftsmanship. With a nod to the ways new generations of artists are interacting with their world, the exhibition includes information regarding the artists’ social media platforms, including their Instagram and Twitter handles, allowing visitors to continue to follow the artists’ careers once they leave the gallery.

    Monica Coyne is an artist-blacksmith based in rural California. Living in both urban and rural environments created questions that Monica addresses with her work. Her figurative sculptures are inspired by man’s place in the natural environment; she draws connections between the state of human progress and the value of the wild around us.
