Engage in a wide variety of modes of making

Metal Program

Metal is an active area of study that engages a wide variety of ideas, objects, images, and modes of making. The program is directed by Professor Myra Mimlitsch-Gray, includes Michael Gayk and Kerianne Quick as prominent faculty, and Jamie Bennett as Professor Emeritus. The rigorous curriculum provides opportunities to explore the technical, aesthetic, and conceptual aspects of contemporary jewelry and metalsmithing in a state-of-the-art facility with teachers who are actively engaged artists and who exhibit and lecture internationally.

SUNY New Paltz is among the largest graduate metal programs in the country and has earned the distinction of being ranked #1 by US News and World Report. Our alumni contribute to the richness of this field in meaningful ways; they actively participate in building a critical and productive community while they expand the field through their energetic, creative professional work.
