The Nova Scotia Centre for Craft and Design is hosting a display
of metal crafts until July 3. It features work from members of
the Metal Arts Guild of Nova Scotia.

The display is part of the centre's ongoing production crafts
display program which allows the public to look at the work of
Nova Scotia producers without the pressure to buy. Information is
made available for people who wish to know where the products can
be purchased. The displays are a sample of the range and quality
of crafts available in the province.

The Metal Arts Guild is a non-profit organization of metal
workers. The purpose of the guild is to stimulate and develop
interest in handmade metal craft articles. The membership
encompasses beginning jewellers, hobbyists, and experienced
professionals. In recent years the guild has grown to include
knife makers, blacksmiths and tinsmiths. Members, whose work is
on display, include: Tracy Hamilton, Chris Shute, Harriet
Burdett-Moulton, Donald Bell, Kim Goldsmith, Todd Bennett, John
Vandermeulen and Mikey Heron.

The Centre for Craft and Design, 1683 Barrington Street, Halifax,
is dedicated to preserving and promoting the craft industry of
Nova Scotia. The centre is part of the Cultural Affairs Division
of the Department of Education and Culture. The Metal Arts Guild
display may be viewed Monday to Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30
p.m. and Saturday 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. There is no admission charge.
