In Remembrance: Betsy Douglas

Betsy Douglas Metal and BeyondWe are saddened to announce that long-time SNAG member Betsy Douglas passed away on September 2, 2016. Douglas was an Arizona icon in the metals field with an illustrious career. Her work ranged from modern designs in silver, gold, pewter and titanium to more recent work with lead computer frames, Chinese coins, aluminum, brass and copper. Douglas served on the SNAG board from 1992 to 1994. In 2014 her art was featured in the exhibition Betsy Douglas: Metal and Beyond at the Mesa Contemporary Art Museum in Mesa, Arizona. As a maker, her strength was in the excellence of design and elegance of form.
