The SNAG Board is pleased to present this feature documentary by Richard Kane about the history and significance of J. Fred Woell, a metalsmith, jeweler and political artist. Woell made satirical commentary on the dark side of history. Woell had profound beliefs in our democratic ideals yet saw the flaws in our politics. An inspiring, humble and humorous artist and teacher, Woell opened the door to seeing anew. Originally scheduled to be shown at the SNAG conference, this documentary will be available online for limited screening and will be free to all SNAG members. Please also join us for a panel discussion and Q&A with the filmmaker Richard Kane, Woell’s wife Patricia Wheeler and metalsmith Eleanor Moty.
