The 2017 Halstead Design Challenge “Memento” asked artists to incorporate a photo into a brooch constructed primarily from materials in the Halstead challenge kit. A juried selection from all entries was exhibited at RHINO Contemporary Crafts Gallery during the SNAG New Orleans conference in May 2017. Seventy-one brooches are now on view in our online exhibition and sale.
SNAG has always been a volunteer-based organization. Because our volunteers do so much for us, we want to do a better job of recognizing and rewarding them. SNAG VOLUNTEERS is a new program to track volunteer hours and to say “Thank You!” for all the hard work you do!

The fourth juried member online exhibition in the WE ARE SNAG series.
Call for entries opens August 1, 2017
Deadline October 1, 2017
History has inspired artists for thousands of years. Rather than simply borrow imagery from the past, this exhibition asks you to engage deeply with historical appropriation.
Juried by Michael Dale Bernard (UW-Milwaukee) and Emily Stoehrer (MFA Boston), we invite all SNAG members to apply to this exhibition.
SNAG would like to take this opportunity to recognize our Corporate Members for their support: AGTA, Halstead, Pocosin Arts, and Shapeways.
The Big Reveal: SNAG’s 2017 Student Slideshow
This presentation, originally shown at the SNAG conference in New Orleans in May 2017, represents the talent, creativity, and hard work of students. We sought out powerful and inspirational images from students pursuing certificates, associates, bachelors and master’s degrees.
Lee Marshall, of Santa Cruz, CA passed away June 25, 2017. Marshall, a former SNAG member, was the founder of both Bonny Doon Engineering and Knew Concepts.
