What is CMAG?
Founded in 2001, Chicago Metal Arts Guild (CMAG) is a non-profit (501c3) organization that provides information, education, and support for Chicago area metal artists and promotes the appreciation of metalwork as an art form to the general public.
We have a nine person volunteer board of directors and members from the Chicago area and surrounding states. Though we host our events primarily in Chicago, we welcome members from all parts of the Midwest.
CMAG aims to provide a dynamic, strong, local community for anyone with an interest in metal arts, from jewelers to sculptors. We offer opportunities for sharing business practices and tips, learning new skills in workshops with respected artists, gaining exposure to new ideas and work from visiting artists’ lectures, and participating in local exhibitions.
CMAG is also interested in promoting the metals arts to a wider audience through educational outreach programs and by making our events open and accessible to the public at large.
