MEGAN McGAFFIGAN |Design With Metal

Megan McGaffigan received her MFA in Jewelry/Metal Arts at California College of the Arts in San Francisco and her BFA in Metalsmithing from Montana State University.
 
In her own work she explores ideas of tradition, sentiment, and longing through the melding of the antiquated method of tintype photography and traditional jewelry making techniques. She creates objects of adornment that reflect an intimate awareness of these human experiences and seeks to develop jewelry that attributes sentiment to things, place, or time that no longer exist.
 
Her one of a kind work has been exhibited nationally at galleries including Velvet Da Vinci (San Francisco, CA), Pittsburg Society for Contemporary Craft (Pittsburg, PA) and Heidi Lowe Gallery (Rehoboth Beach, DE). McGaffigan’s work is included in public collections including the Racine Art Museum (Racine, WI), several private collections, and upcoming 2018 work inclusions at Facèré Jewelry Art Gallery (Seattle, WA). She currently lives just outside the Portland, Oregon metro area.
