Welcome to our community of artists!

We are Colorado Metalsmithing Association (CoMA).

We welcome all who love and appreciate metal art in all its forms!

 

Our membership includes a wide variety of professionals, educators, students and hobbyists. Through member events, our conference and shows, CoMA members enjoy sharing new techniques and creative endeavors

Our Mission

 

To involve our members in a statewide exchange of creative and technical knowledge about the art of metalsmithing.

A Brief History

 

The Colorado Metalsmithing Association (CoMA) was established in 1994. Since our founding our membership has expanded beyond Colorado to all throughout the United States.

Who We Are

 

Our membership includes jewelers, sculptors, blacksmiths, knifemakers and other professionals interested in supporting the metal arts. We believe that a strong artist community is essential to the development and growth of the metal arts in Colorado. We host all-member and juried shows and bring members together for metalsmithing related events throughout the year. The highlight of our year is the annual conference in July. The conference features nationally and internationally known artists who share their knowledge and experience with us. A selection of those artists will often teach workshops both before and after the conference.

CoMA is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. We are run by a group of dedicated volunteer board and committee members who aim to involve members in creative and social dialogue about the art of metalsmithing. We'd love to have you join us! If you're interested in volunteering on the board or a committee, please contact our president, Stacey Booth, at president@coloradometalsmiths.org

What We Do

Exhibitions

CoMA often has opportunities to sponsor juried gallery shows which we share with members. We also invite members to participate in our all-member shows including the one during our annual conference.

Education

Throughout the year CoMA presents various learning activities: Demo Days and Network & Learn events. These are a great opportunity to learn from and meet other members.

Annual Conference

Our annual conference, held in Colorado the third weekend of July, allows members to network, share ideas, and learn from industry leaders in the metal arts.

Community

CoMA maintains and active and growing Facebook  and Instagram presence; our main page keeps you up to date, our social page connects you to other artists, and our marketplace page lets you buy and sell with other Colorado metalsmiths. These are amazing resources that we encourage you to utilize! 

Networking

Our membership includes a wide variety of professionals, educators, students and hobbyists. We believe that connecting with other metalsmiths helps all of us achieve our creative and professional goals.

Development

We offer scholarships to students to attend our annual conference. We speak regularly in classrooms and school events and we work with other guilds to promote and maintain interest in the metal arts.
