The First Metal: Arts & Crafts Copper is the first exhi­bition to focus on copper metalwork in the Arts and Crafts movement in the United Kingdom and the United States, with additional works from Germany, Ireland, Australia, and New Zealand. Drawing on the Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art’s Margo Grant Walsh Twentieth Century Silver and Metalwork Collection and several private and museum loans, the exhibition presents a range of handwrought copper works by many of the premier Arts and Crafts metalsmiths working in the late nine­teenth and early twentieth centuries.

A full color catalogue with newly commis­sioned essays by scholar-curators Mary Greensted and Jonathan Clancy trace the rise of the Arts and Crafts movement and the particular role that copper played in its development and ethos will be available in May 2023. Marilyn Archer served as guest curator, and Margo Grant Walsh served as a curatorial consultant to the exhibition.
