Our History

In 2010 Midge Thomas participated in an outdoor juried Art Faire.  The weather was clear and promised to be a wonderful week-end.  As the first day moved on, the temperature got hotter and hotter, stopping at 101 degrees with 25 mile an hour wind gusts.  As she held her work on the walls of her booth, she thought to herself, “There has got to be a better way for all these local artists to sell their wares in a better environment.

This show sparked the beginning of the Artists Gallery in Sunriver, where 30 Central Oregon Artists work together as a co-op gallery selling their art.  Midge had been a painter in the beginning, but when a metal artists who had joined the gallery left, another was not to be found easily.  This is when Midge decided to learn how to work metal into beautiful and fun designs. 

As time has passed, Midge's metal art had become very popular and her business expanded to the point that  she has recruited her daughter Laura and grandson Ryan to join together as STS Metal Art Designs to continue this metal art endeavor.

While each individual brings to the table different talents, they have combined to form a fantastic mix of artistic vision, practical knowledge, business skills and marketing.  We currently have three generations of artistic talent coming together to form one company.
