AMSA members exhibit at the Nordic Heritage Museum

Two members of the American Medallic Sculpture Association, AMSA had their medals on display at the Nordic Heritage Museum in Seattle from June 18th to August 1st, 2004. 80 medals from all over the USA as well as Ireland, Canada, Israel, Australia and also medals by an invited artist from the Norwegian Mint were assembled at the Nordic Heritage Museum for this exhibit. This exhibit was made possible by the efforts of Anne-Lise Deering, AMSA secretary and newsletter editor. Ms. Deering has a special connection with the Nordic community as a native Norwegian and a member of the Nordic Heritage Museum.

The purpose of the American Medallic Sculpture Association, AMSA is to encourage the creation and study of medallic sculpture in North America. All who are interested are welcome as members. By having exhibitions like this we hope to share this wonderful art form with everyone.
