The Iron Workers Union Part II is a celebration of metal sculpture; in particular the hand-built one-of-a-a-kind pieces that metal workers create. While every artist has explored his or her own distinctive themes and subjects, the artists are connected by the materials and techniques used.  

The historical roots of today’s artistic metalworkers span cultures, civilizations, and the millennia. Three thousand years after iron ore was first plucked from the ground with curiosity to the time when the clank and clatter of the blacksmith’s anvil ushered in the Iron Age then to the Industrial Revolution that changed nearly everything, metalworkers have had a profound effect on civilizations.   

Metalworking techniques are varied ranging from hammering, soldering, brazing, forging and welding that transform metal into objects that fire our imaginations, awe us with their beauty or encourage us to question why.

Chad Arney, Matt Church, Hilary Clark Cole, Brendan Duggan, Deb Harkness and Mikaila Davidson are six local artists who work with this hard rigid metal, crafting it into fantastical found object sculptures, mechanical works, organic objects or life-size animals.
