The SNAG Nominations and Elections Committee is looking for individuals to serve on the Board of Directors. We rely on a volunteer Board of people just like you to help steer our organization. Do you know of someone who might be a good fit for SNAG’s Board? Or have you been thinking of serving yourself? We are especially looking for a student representative! There is an open call for nominations and self-nominations.
We are holding a Zoom meeting on Sunday, February 6, 2022 at 1:00 PM Eastern for anyone wanting information about SNAG Board service. Register for the meeting now. Contact the Committee Chair, Liz Clark, for more information. Duties and responsibilities can be found here. We hope to see you on February 6th!
As we work towards stabilizing the organization we’re looking at all the ways we can be most effective in this new landscape. Watch this video message to hear more about the initiatives we’ll be working on in 2022 to better serve SNAG’s membership and the field at large. We are so thankful for all of our community members who have stepped up to contribute to our goal of raising $25,000 by the end of the year!

The James Renwick Alliance for Craft is partnering with the Furniture Society and SNAG for a virtual artist talk by blacksmith Rachel David. It is free and open to all on February 3, 2022 at 6:00 pm Eastern. David is a blacksmith, sculptor, designer and maker, whose work encompasses art, furniture, architectural elements, activism, and collaborations. As a part of this event, JRACraft will bestow the 2021 Chrysalis Award in recognition of Rachel David’s innovation and excellence.
David’s work is inspired by her life, the body, landscapes and the processes of metalworking that she specializes in. Her structured, organic forms and textures reference physical restraints, shibari, cellulite, valleys, hills, and crevasses. David was one of the founding members of the Society of Inclusive Blacksmiths, a small group of female, queer, transgender, people of color, and gender non-conforming metalworkers who support equity, diversity and inclusion in the field of blacksmithing.
