MASC Issue 33

behind the MASC Issue 33: “My Favourite Medal” Retrospective Catalogue

    From September 2011 to May 2012, our show “My Favourite Medal” was held at the Rodman Hall Art Centre/Brock University in St. Catharines, Ontario. This was our first show at our new permanent home. Our theme allowed our members to show off their favourite medal, and tell us why it had this distinction. This special edition of the behind the MASC newsletter documents these pieces. They are shown in alphabetical order by the submitter’s last name, and will give you a glimpse into our world of fine art medals.

    I hope you enjoy the pieces as much as we do!
