DeBoer VP Spring 2024

Canadian born artist Jeff de Boer has established an international following over the past 37 years for creating some of the most fascinating and well-made art and artifacts today. Made famous for his collection of museum-quality suits of armor for cats and mice, Jeff’s work was recently featured in a major article and videos on the on-line National Geographic site. Jeff has been using Chasing and Repoussé as a key technique in his work for decades and has developed practical techniques and tools to get high-quality results that he would like to share with everyone.

SNAG in Conversation

SNAG In Conversation is virtual monthly gatherings for members and non-members to share experiences and knowledge and to build relationships.

These convenings were originally conceived in response to the disruption of COVID-19 to educators and studio artists. The conversations were so successful in providing space for communal resources that SNAG is pleased to continue them. All are welcome!
