The Society of Metalpoint Artists is to:
- Promote metalpoint as a contemporary artistic medium
- Provide educational material and information about metalpoint
- Provide a place for people to connect with metalpoint artists
- Offer online presence for metalpoint artists of all skill levels
The Silverpoint/Metalpoint group was established as a means to reach out to everyone who has an interest in metalpoint, and has a desire to learn about, or perhaps just enjoy the beauty of this artform. The new group, The Society of Metalpoint Artists, while not limited to only to art professionals, is primarily for those with a more active role in the practice of this medium. I encourage you to join, especially the Silverpoint/Metalpoint group. And if you are inspired by what you see, please join our society. Joining the Facebook group, The Society of Metalpoint Artists, requires society membership.
Connecting with other artists who practice this medium is fundamental for learning techniques. My hope is to provide a place for exploration and inspiration of this elegant drawing technique. Thank you for sharing your knowledge and work, supporting one another, and helping to rekindle an interest in this elegant medium.
