METALmorphosis: The Art of Transformation is a national, open-call show highlighting the amazing qualities of metal in all its forms—a sheet of silver, an ingot of gold, steel wire, or any other type of metal. Through a variety of processes and repetition, there is a transformative experience that requires attention from the artist, unique to the field of metals.

In partnership with the Colorado Metalsmithing Association (CoMA), The Art Students League of Denver (ASLD) invites all artists working in metals to participate. The entry fee of $40 will apply to all artists submitting work who are not current members of CoMA. Active members of CoMA may submit work to this show at a discounted price using the access code provided to you by CoMA. If you are not a current member of CoMA we encourage you to become a member HERE. Please submit no more than 3 pieces for jurying. You may enter a set as one item if they are being sold as a set, not individually. For example, you may enter a pair of earrings, a necklace, and a bracelet as your three entries or you may enter earrings, a necklace, and a bracelet together as one entry to be sold as a set. Sculptural work and wearable work will be considered if they are made of 60% metal.

For any questions or concerns regarding the submission process, please refer to the listing at or contact Holly K. Hurd, Community Engagement & Exhibitions Manager at or call (303)778-6990 ext. 1108.
