Chas Colburn received a degree in Business Administration from the Gardner School of Business in 1971, and a BFA in Studio Art from the University of Maryland in 1976. In 1979 he founded Chalco Metal Works, a custom metal-working shop in which he creates his own sculpture, and also provides fabricating, computer aided design and drafting, consulting, art handling, and installation services to the DC area art community. In 1989 he became a senior member of the Society of Manufacturing Engineers. He lives and works in the Washington, DC area.

The WASHINGTON SCULPTORS GROUP (WSG) is a non-profit organization founded in 1984 to promote an awareness and understanding of sculpture. To achieve this goal, WSG fosters the exchange of ideas between sculptors, collectors, art representatives, and the public by organizing exhibitions and events that are free and open to the public.

WSG plans, manages, and promotes 3-4 juried and curated exhibitions each year in galleries, museums and alternative spaces throughout the greater Washington, DC area, in cooperation with other local arts organizations. These high-quality exhibitions give our members opportunities to show their work and raise their visibility within the greater Washington DC region.
