President’s Message

Welcome to Enamel Guild North East.

We’re happy you found us! Our mission at EG/NE is to promote the art of vitreous enameling to practicing artists as well as the general public throughout the northeast region of the USA.

There has been a resurgence of interest in enameling in recent years, due mostly to the wonderful exhibitions held by organizations and guilds throughout the country and the publicity they generate. Exhibitions have proven to be an excellent way to educate the public and thus attract new artists to our medium. In 2012, in celebration of our 20th Anniversary, EG/NE hosted an exhibition at the Cape Cod Museum featuring 28 artists with a total of 48 pieces of work. In 2014 we plan to hold a juried online exhibition on the EG/NE website while also working toward another Museum exhibition in the near future.

Although we are located in the Northeast, membership is open to all. We currently have 205 members in 17 states and abroad. Member benefits are: inclusion in EG/NE database, Member Gallery and exhibitions, as well as access to newsletters, updates, event notifications and discounts on conferences & workshops. I urge you to become a member today so you may enjoy the benefits immediately.

We hope you will join us at our annual conferences held at the Center for the Arts in White Plains, New York.
