SNAG will be traveling to Asheville, NC for the May 2016 (May 18-21) conference event, SNAGneXt: Asheville 2016 – An Interchange and Exchange on the Many Facets of Making a Living in the Field.
A 15-year tradition at these annual events is the fundraiser Exhibition in Motion (EiM), a live fashion show and fundraising event featuring models wearing cutting edge jewelry. SNAG is pleased to produce the 2016 EiM in partnership with local Asheville fiber group Local Cloth.
For the 2016 EiM event, we are looking for large-scale collaborative wearable objects and looks. Application deadline extended to midnight PST on November 2, 2015.

A new page on the SNAG website!
Contemporary metalsmithing is a dynamic field, with creativity flowing on many fronts. Metalsmith EXTRA! helps capture this vitality and extends the magazine’s broad coverage. Here you will find exclusive content related to each issue, with bonus images, expanded stories, and videos of artists and studios. Be sure to check in regularly for something extra to spark your interest and widen your outlook on the metalsmithing world.
We launch Metalsmith EXTRA! with videos tied to the 2015 Exhibition in Print, “Moved by Metal: On Beauty as Interaction.” Curated by Wendy Steiner, the showcased works all encourage interaction and empathetic involvement. This video selection from artists in the issue helps brings these dynamic works to life.
