The ABANA 2012 Conference Gallery needs your work!

Our upcoming conference in Rapid City, South Dakota July 18-21, 2012, is going to be a fantastic event.

One of the reasons that ABANA is the preeminent blacksmith organization in the world is the diversity of our membership. Our ranks encompass all levels of ability and creativity, and it is this that makes us great.

We at ABANA believe that the Gallery at this year's conference should reflect our diversity. No matter what your skill level, we ask that you please consider submitting a sample or samples of your work. 


The application and Gallery Agreement can be downloaded here:


or you may email with any questions you have.

Thank you for considering submitting your work to the Conference and we look forward to hearing from you.
