SNAG is pleased to announce that its Emerging Curators Grant has been awarded to Sasha Nixon. Nixon is completing the Masters program at the Bard Graduate Center in New York City.
SNAG’s Emerging Curators program offers grants up to $2,500 to assist an emerging curator or curators in executing an exhibition focused on jewelry and/or metalwork.
SNAG would like to take this opportunity to recognize our Corporate Members for their support: AGTA, Halstead, Pocosin Arts, and Shapeways.
The initial Road 2 Success was an initiative developed in 2013 as a way to engage and interact with our constituents that centered on mentoring the membership on various aspects of running a business and making a living in the field. The initial program was an informal online forum with participants asking seasoned mentors questions specifically related to the various aspects of entrepreneurship. As a result of the first Road 2 Success, it became apparent there was a lack of knowledge, resources, and specific training for jewelry and metalsmithing artists who wanted to pursue a career in creating, marketing, and selling their work.
Our new program, Road to Success: Avenues of Entrepreneurship, consists of four distinct avenues of education.
