AGM

We had a great AGM!

 

In her President's report, Delane Cooper shared that the Board has been working on MAGc’s infrastructure during the past year by up-dating bylaws and getting our fiscal house in order. Not very exciting - but very important!  The Guild suffered without an acting treasurer for some time which left much work to be done. Our current treasurer, Janet Ma, facilitated bringing our books up to date which allows us to now be in a position to be audited by a third party.  This was no small feat.  Moving forward we will be able to apply for grants which we did not qualify for previously and a third party audit improves our profile for funding by potential sponsors.  Funding through grants and sponsorship will help us meet one of our goals which is to hire a part time administrator so the MAGc staff, who are all volunteers, can move the Guild’s agenda forward.

 

Delane also highlighted opportunities due to our increased profile on the web. National and international corporations and institutions have contacted MAGc to facilitate some exciting opportunities for our members. Many of the details are confidential so MAGc is unable able to boast about them by name.  Without infringing confidentiality two examples are an international sports clothing company contacted MAG regarding a storefront in Alberta and a 6 foot wide internationally recognized symbol was made by metalsmith, Andy Pomorski.  By being involved with SNAG's Meta-Mosaic Conference, the Toronto International Jewellery Festival and the MAGc supported exhibitions at the Art Gallery of Ontario and the Design Exchange-Canada’s Design Museum in May 2013, MAGc’s profile will increase so we may continue to do what we do best:  Connect-Communicate-Create. 

 

 

 

Our Keynote speaker, Katherine Dunnell, gave a fascinating talk on the history of the ROM's gem collection, and showed us some of it's highlights. A new display has been recently put together and it looks fantastic! She encouraged jewellers who work with gems to come an explore the exhibit.

 

Katherine Dunnell joined the ROM in 1997, and since then has participated in the development of several exhibitions, including: The Black Star Sapphire of Queensland (2007); Pearls: A Natural History (2005); and Our Crystalline World. She was also a member of the Gallery Development Team for the ROM's Teck Suite of Galleries: Earth's Treasures, and the exhibit, The Nature of Diamonds.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Paul McClure was the talented recipient of the Steel Trophy for his piece in "Exhibition in Print".

The Steel Trophy was made by one of the founders of MAG, Harold Stacey, to honour George Steel, the husband of another member, Marjorie Steel. Mr. Steel was a lapidary artist who contributed the piece of sodalite on the trophy.

 

It is one of the only awards of it's kind in Canada and is awarded to the Best of Show winner at each MAG bienniel exhibition.

 

 

 

 

 Special thanks to Delane for hosting these social meetings at Verity - a really elegant and friendly atmosphere!
