Guilford Art Center (GAC) will hold a reception and temporary display of works by its GAC blacksmith instructors and Forged in Fire winners, Mace Vitale and Matt Parkinson, on Thursday, Sept. 17 from 5 to 7 p.m. This event will celebrate their victories on the new History Channel series, as well as provide the public a chance to meet the winners, view a sampling of their craft and see the forge area. This event is free and open to the public.
GAC instructor and forge manager Vitale won the series finale episode on Aug. 10; Parkinson, a frequent visiting instructor, won the first episode. Each “win” brought with it a $10,000 prize.
