Sharon Massey – Board Members Speak (February 2013)

I started reading Metalsmith magazine at age 15 while in my first jewelry class, and I’ve been a member of SNAG for as long as I can remember. I always thought that I would like to serve on the board at some point, and during the past year the time just seemed right. During the past seven years I have completed graduate school, taught at a variety of institutions, worked for an arts non-profit, and made several bodies of work. I feel like I have a unique perspective of the field as a result of my experiences, and I hope I use that knowledge to enhance my board service.
