SNAG Board Candidate
Sarah Darro is a curator, writer, and visual anthropologist working at the nexus of contemporary art, craft, and design. She has established an intersectional curatorial vision that is invested in reinvigorating museum spaces as forums for discourse, innovation, action, and engagement through experience. She is the founder of Green Room Gallery, a moveable kunsthalle and dedicated long-form color study. She lives and works in Houston, TX, where she is the Curator and Exhibitions Director of Houston Center for Contemporary Craft.

Darro was the 2022 Jentel Foundation Art Critic at the Archie Bray Foundation and the 2019 American Craft Council Emerging Voices Scholar Awardee. From 2021-2022, she was the Gallery Manager of the Center for Craft in Asheville, NC; in 2020 she completed a Curatorial Research Fellowship in Modern and Contemporary Glass at the Corning Museum of Glass; and in 2018 she completed a three-year Windgate Curatorial Fellowship at Houston Center for Contemporary Craft.

She holds a Master’s degree in Visual, Material, and Museum Anthropology from the University of Oxford and dual Bachelor’s degrees in Art History and Anthropology from Barnard College of Columbia University. Her research interests include artist communities and collectives, relational aesthetics, movement and performance practice in craft, architecturally-influenced design, radical accessibility, systems esthetics, and the life histories and agency of objects.

Statement of Interest:
I would be honored to serve on the Board of Directors of the Society of North American Goldsmiths. SNAG aligns with my values because it is a community-driven organization that supports an expansive future of metalsmithing– a future that I am invested in as a curator and scholar of contemporary craft (as well as a devotee of the power of adornment!). I am interested in wielding my skillsets to serve SNAG’s efforts to foster critical dialogue, community, and creativity.
