Local and regional metal arts practitioners, Clatsop Community College and the Fort George Brewery & Public House are collaborating to produce Astoria’s first Metal Fest event – Saturday, July 19, noon to 9pm, at the Fort George Lovell Showroom and Brewery.

 

The festival will highlight metal artists from throughout the Pacific Northwest and a diverse range of techniques including blacksmithing, bladesmithing, and fabricating in metal. Participating artists include: Vern Wilson, sculptor; Lynn Gledhill, President of the Northwest Blacksmith Association; Mike Neely, Mark Moshofski and David Curl, professional blacksmiths and more.

 

Artisans will demonstrate their techniques, display their work and offer work for sale. In addition, artists are donating original work for a live auction of work that will be displayed in the Fort George Lovell Showroom gallery. Proceeds from the auction and a percentage of sales will be donated to Clatsop Community College to help support its new blacksmithing three-course sequence beginning Fall Term 2014. Registration for the first course in this series, Blacksmithing I (BLD199) is now open at www.clatsopcc.edu/register.

 

Live music and a BBQ by the Fort George Brewery will be available throughout the event.
