We want to share some fabulous images from this year’s Exhibition in Motion!
The event took place in May at SNAGneXt in Asheville, NC. A tradition at SNAG’s annual conference, the Exhibition in Motion is a live fashion show and fundraising event featuring models wearing cutting edge jewelry.
This year’s theme was Xchange: Fashioning Intersections. The idea was collaboration, calibration and cooperation, where the pieces were made in partnerships and celebrate large scale sculpture worn on the body. The 2016 coordinators were Matt Lambert and Louise Perrone (pictured at right).
Enjoy these images of some of the pieces. Photographs taken by Micah McKenzie.

Make it Shake, Rattle & Spin! This call-for-action was made to 100 lucky recipients of the 2016 Halstead Design Challenge kits. Each kit contained 50 components. Artists were asked to create a kinetic brooch using the supplies and adding a found object.
Selected brooches are on display and for sale at Blue Spiral 1 gallery in Asheville, NC, through May 20, 2016. Unsold work from the exhibition will be featured in an online sale on SNAG’s website after the SNAGneXt conference.
