Member Development Grant Awarded to Martha Ferguson

Martha Ferguson

The 2015-2016 Board of Directors selected local metalsmith and educator, Martha Ferguson, as the first recipient of the newly created HMAG Member Development Grant.   The grant is underwritten by HMAG corporate sponsor Charisma Design, and is awarded for the purpose of assisting an artist in his or her professional development as a metalsmith.

Martha plans to use the grant to purchase technology equipment for her classroom.  The equipment includes a digital camera with a portable projector and projection screen so that students can see her technical demonstrations more clearly and without obstruction.  Also, since students often need to view processes more than once to fully understand a technique, the equipment will allow her to record the demonstrations.  The recorded demos would then be accessible for students who wish to watch the process multiple times, thus creating the opportunity for virtual or “distance” learning.
