Board Members Speak: Kat Cole

Kat Cole photoWhat brought you to wanting a board position?

I had several conversations with colleagues who were volunteering for SNAG in some way or another and the value they got from donating their time, and began to feel like it was time to step up.  I also wanted to closer connection with the field and knew being a more active member could do that.

What are your plans for board participation (your committee assignment, fundraising project, etc.)?

I am a part of the Fundraising, Programming, and Finance committees.  Each of these positions has given me a valuable look at the dynamic components in play in an organization as large and diverse as SNAG.  I have a very deep appreciation those people that have donated their time all these years to keep SNAG going and growing.

What exciting, interesting, confounding things are you doing right now (in your life other than being on the board)?

I am broadening my studio practice to include more large scale wall work, the shift in scale and site are totally confounding and challenging!

Can you share an anecdote of a fun or meaningful SNAG experience for you (something that happened at a conference, an interaction with another member, an opportunity that occurred through SNAG)?

I think SNAG is very important for young professionals to be a part of.  I know it can be a financial challenge but networking and being active in our community is essential.  I got my first major gallery representation from a portfolio review I had with a gallery owner at a SNAG conference.  It has been one of the most valuable relationships I have made professionally, and it was entirely due to SNAG and the programing they offer.
