Pratt Fine Arts Center says
Women in Metal: Foundry, Forging and Fabrication will kick off during Women’s History Month, this March 2015, in celebration of local female artists who are successfully navigating a traditionally male-dominated artistic discipline. The intention is to not only celebrate artists currently working professionally in metal, but to also create exciting and inviting opportunities for women to experience working in metal for the first time, or to deepen their ongoing artistic practice.

On March 26, Pratt is proud to present Women in Metal, a Conversation, featuring six prominent female artists in the Seattle metals scene:

Judith Caldwell, Chelsea Gaddy, Hazel Margaretes, Amie McNeel, Lauren Osmolski and Julie Speidel

Introduction by renowned artist, Piper O'Neill and moderated by Bellevue Arts Museum’s Curator of Craft, Jennifer Navva Milliken, audience members will have the opportunity to listen and ask questions about their artistic journey and how they are paving the way for the next generation of female metal artists. The panelists include artists creating large-scale public and private commissions, unique gallery work, and decorative metalwork.

In addition to Women in Metal: A Conversation, Pratt is offering twelve metals classes this March through May, taught exclusively by female instructors including two “Ladies Forging & Welding Nights.” By offering classes taught by professional female instructors, Pratt aims to create an environment where women feel free to create and explore in the realms of the foundry work, forging and metal fabrication.
