In Focus 2024

SNAG’s In Focus exhibition will be showcased digitally during the SNAG x San Diego conference and virtually on the SNAG website. This year we’ve partnered with Queer Metalsmiths to showcase BIPOC and or 2SLGBTQIA+ artists from marginalized communities who are the future of the metalsmithing and jewelry field in all materials, aesthetics, levels of experience, and backgrounds.

The SNAG conference programming aims to address the broad concepts of connection, community, or collaboration; to highlight work that exemplifies the impulse to unite, explores connections that transcend boundaries, exhibits acts of cooperation, or builds bridges – whether across physical or imagined borders, media or material, cultures or language.

Join us for a breakout session during the conference that provides a safe space for attendees to connect, discuss, and learn about the diversity of SNAG.
Thursday, June 6th | 1:30pm - 2:15pm in the Theater
