recycled road signs ArtistThe SNAG Board has awarded the 2016 Volunteer Recognition Award to Boris Bally. Started in 2015 by the SNAG Board of Directors, the Award recognizes and publicly acknowledges a volunteer’s contribution to SNAG.

Boris has been an enthusiastic and generous SNAG volunteer for many years. He has served on the Board of Directors and the Editorial Advisory Committee. Boris has participated in many SNAG community-led projects, most recently his “Ransom” project where he sold 100 of his brooches and asked the purchasers to take selfies wearing the piece they bought. He then donated a portion of the sales to SNAG as his personal way of giving back!

Boris will receive the Volunteer Recognition Award during this year’s Membership Meeting at SNAGneXtRead more

Olivia Shih Receives SNAG/crafthaus Conference Scholarship

Olivia ShihCrafthaus is pleased to award the 2016 SNAG/crafthaus Conference Scholarship to Olivia Shih. Shih will use the scholarship to attend SNAGneXt in May.

Shih plans to blog about gender and jewelry by interviewing artists who do not shy away from words like “gender issues,” “feminism,” and “sex”; analyzing the work of said artists and the reach of their work, and reinvigorating conversation about gender in jewelry by putting together an online exhibition.

See more about Shih on the crafthaus website.
