The exhibition is intended to reflect the diverse cultural backgrounds, techniques, skills and interests of VMAA members. Their imagery is electric, their methods are varied, and their tools are innovative. They tell stories with precious metals such as sterling silver and gold, and they extend the narrative with non-precious metals such as brass, copper, steel, and nickel. Often they combine other mediums and found materials producing results that are distinct, imaginative, and always cause for reflection.
