MADE: The 2018 Juried Student Exhibition highlighted student work that challenges traditional and non-traditional ways of working using new and old materials, techniques, and ideas by the next generation of makers in the metalsmithing and jewelry field. The exhibition was held in May during the SNAG conference in Portland, Oregon.

The 2018 Halstead Design Challenge “Hidden” asked artists to play with the ideas of secrecy and mystery to create a brooch or convertible pendant constructed primarily from materials in the Halstead challenge kit. A juried selection from all entries was exhibited during the SNAG Portland, Oregon conference in May 2018. The work is on view in our online exhibition.
Join us next week for our annual conference!

MADE: Makers Across Disciplines Engage
May 23rd-26th, 2018
Portland Marriott Downtown Waterfront, 1401 SW Naito Pkwy
MADE: Makers Across Disciplines Engage focuses on materials, art, design, and interdisciplinary collaboration. While celebrating traditional and innovative techniques alike, we seek to engage makers and other creative individuals who push the boundaries of our field with a cross-media sensibility. Portland is a city that has a strong sense of community and is home to entrepreneurs and craftspeople alike. In response to this, we invite makers who work across disciplines to explore the unforeseen directions, inventiveness, and ingenuity within the metalsmithing field.
SNAG would like to take this opportunity to recognize our Corporate Members for their support: Halstead, Pocosin Arts, and Shapeways.
