As we near the end of 2023, we reflect on some of the many ways the SNAG community has gathered this year:

  • An international group joined 25 presenters from 18 cities across 7 different countries highlighting contemporary jewelry & metalsmithing of West Africa for the second Tides & Waves Virtual Symposium.
  • SNAG @ Tucson helped first time attendees navigate the behemoth that is the Tucson Gem Show and provided opportunities for makers to show and sell work.
  • The diversity of SNAG’s membership was showcased in Still Processing and we explored NYCJW together on our gallery crawls.
  • We forged connections between blacksmithing and metalsmithing over an intimate weekend at SNAG @ Touchstone.
  • Each month we convened virtually In Conversation with Educators and Studio Artists.
  • Through our Board Workshops Fundraiser we brought people together to learn and grow.
  • Metalsmith magazine continued to serve as a platform of connection. Vol 43 No 3’s Editorial Photography Call reflects the broad range of approaches to photography, from students to professionals.
  • In edition 3 of We are SNAG Anthology, members came together in this yearbook catalog.
  • SNAG strengthened external partnerships and support including new funding from the Marie & John Zimmermann Fund.

We’re asking members of this vibrant community to invest in your own SNAG moment! Help us raise $25,000 by the end of the year so we can: 

  • Place the history of the field at your fingertips
  • Design & produce opportunities to gather, learn, and grow
  • Invest in the future through scholarships and education

Your financial support is a fundamental part of making that possible. Any donation of any size makes a difference. Thank you for ensuring that SNAG will continue to foster community for 54+ more years!
