The 2019 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 Chicago.
Congratulations to the winners:

Call for Entries
SNAG’s 2020 Exhibition in Motion committee is seeking proposals that reflect how you see the future. What is important to you as we move into the future? What do you see as the future of SNAG, of the field, our environment, and our world? As always you must GO BIG! Consideration will be given to works that incorporate topics of inclusion and sustainability. Collaborations, class projects and international applications are encouraged. Future Now is open to all from the beginner to professional. We want you all!
All works will be presented on live models and must consider scale (think feet not inches) and wearability for all body types. The EiM is open to submissions of all kinds from finished pieces to sketched proposals. We want to show just how diverse we all are!! Deadline: October 28, 2019.
2019 marks the 50th anniversary of SNAG’s formation as an organization. To celebrate this milestone we are planning a variety of events that reflect on our past, look towards our future, and honor our members. One of these is our Graduating Student Showcase. In honor of SNAG’s mission to inspire creativity, encourage education, and foster community, we invite all graduating students to submit images of their work to be displayed on our exhibition website SNAG//SPACE.
All matriculating or non-matriculating graduating students, part time or full time, under the direction of faculty in any North American institution are welcome to apply. Applicants must be 18 years of age or older. SNAG membership is not required.
Deadline: October 28, 2019
SNAG is pleased to announce that scholarship funding is now available for its Road 2 Success programming.
