Enjoy an opening reception for Alchemy4, the newest exhibition at the Metal Museum. A gallery talk with the curator begins at 4PM.

Alchemy, a term that refers to a seemingly magical power of transmutation as well as the ancient chemical philosophy of turning base metal into gold or silver, can apply to enamel as it is magically transformed by heat.

“The 16th Biennial International Juried Enamel Exhibition” and “12th International Juried Student Enamel Exhibition,” sponsored by The Enamelist Society, highlights the best in contemporary enamels produced in the last 2 years with 150 objects created by 98 artists. The International Juried Exhibition showcases the work of enamelists that demonstrate aesthetic and technical expertise while the Student Exhibition features the work of students in accredited degree programs throughout the world.

Alchemy4 will be on display JAN. 21 - APR. 29, 2018, in the Metal Museum's Gasparrini & Keeler Galleries.
