Northwest ANVIL III
A survey of contemporary NW ironwork
Curated by Lisa Geertson & Andy Blakney
WHAT: A compilation of contemporary ironwork by members (beginners through masters) of the Northwest Blacksmith Association, curated by Twilight’s own, Andy Blakney and Lisa Geertsen.
WHO: The Northwest Blacksmith Association’s (NWBA) membership spreads through Canada, Washington, Oregon, Idaho, and beyond. For over thirty years, its members have been committed to the pursuit of education and preservation of the craft, passing on their knowledge to others to create this large group of talented smiths. This show is a small representation of the membership, but it includes some of the most talented blacksmiths in the Northwest and even the country. Our goal for putting this show together is to bring awareness to the community the possibilities that lie within the art of forged metal.
