New online exhibition!
As the third juried member exhibition in the We Are SNAG series, (Up)Setting the Stone is an online exhibition focused on the setting. Stone setting has been utilized in some of the earliest known jewelry. There are thousands of variations based on a few different techniques. Juried by George Sawyer and Laura Wood, this collection of work expands to jewelry, objects, vessels, and sculpture.
The SNAG Links Project was originally conceived of and coordinated by Linda Kaye-Moses in the 1990s. Linda invited 12 artists to create a link (a pendant-like adornment) utilizing their unique skill-sets.
Victoria Lansford revived the project in 2015/2016. Some of the links are available for purchase through our newest online exhibition. A portion of the proceeds benefit SNAG.
Each artist also contributed a chapter to the ebooks Linking Our Lineage, also available for purchase. Proceeds benefit SNAG.
Make it Shake, Rattle & Spin! This call-for-action was made to 100 lucky recipients of the 2016 Halstead Design Challenge kits. Each kit contained 50 components. Artists were asked to create a kinetic brooch using the supplies and a found object.
Select brooches were featured in an exhibition during SNAGneXt in May 2016. Some of the brooches are available for purchase in a new online exhibition. A portion of the proceeds goes to SNAG.

As the third juried member exhibition in the We Are SNAG series, (Up)Setting the Stone is an exhibition looking for your interpretation of settings. Stonesetting has been utilized in some of the earliest known jewelry. There are thousands of variations based on a few different techniques. Whether used traditionally with gemstones, applied to new materials, or even explored as a concept, this exhibition focuses on the setting. Submissions such as jewelry, objects, vessels, sculpture, and architecture will be considered, but are not limited to these categories.
Juried by George Sawyer and Laura Wood, only images of works completed by current SNAG members will be evaluated.
A virtual exhibition celebrating the breadth of our field and membership.
From “blacksmith” to “goldsmith,” “silversmith” to “bladesmith,” the term “smith” denotes connotations of skill and mastery. Juried by Sue Amendolara, Greg Gehner, and Tom Muir, this online exhibition embraces the work of contemporary smiths and highlights some of the extraordinary works created by members of SNAG.
Go here to view the exhibition as well as statements by the jurors and artists.
SNAG would like to take this opportunity to recognize our Corporate Members for their support: Aaron Faber Gallery, Halstead, Jewelers Mutual Insurance Company, and Pocosin Arts.
