The Metal Arts Guild (MAG) is the member-based organization for silversmiths, jewellers and metal artists in Canada. Since 1946, this non-profit organization has been committed to encouraging the appreciation of Metal Arts through the exchange of information and ideas.

Come to MAG's 2008 Annual General Meeting! Find out what we're planning for the 2008-2009 season. Our AGM 2008 speaker, Jeff de Boer, will talk about "Life on the Outside": his career and his thoughts on contemporary art and craft.

Jeff teaches at the Alberta College of Craft and Design, and has an extraordinary body of inventive, imaginative work – from samurai armour for cats and medieval armour for mice, to 'steam punk'-inspired sculpture and personal objects.
