Objects of Protection
The 2018 Exhibition in Motion committee is seeking proposals for works that offer protection, defensively or offensively. We are encouraging non-traditional proposals that push boundaries or have yet to be seen in a previous Exhibition in Motion. This includes hollowware and blacksmithing work. Unwearable objects welcome. Collaborations and class projects are also encouraged.
The event takes place May 26th, 2018 from 7:30-9:30pm at the SNAG conference in Portland, Oregon.
Deadline extended to November 30, 2017. Learn more and submit an application>>>
Nexus: The 2017 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.

Join us in New Orleans this week, May 24-27, 2017!
Nicknamed the “Big Easy,” New Orleans is known for its round-the-clock nightlife, vibrant live-music scene, and exceptional cuisine. A melting pot of French, African, and American cultures, it is one of the country’s most culturally and historically-rich cities. Its beauty, mystery and continuous regeneration is the perfect backdrop and inspiration for SNAG’s 46th conference, “Nexus: A Connection of Ideas.”
“Nexus: A Connection of Ideas” will focus on motivating thinkers, collectors, and makers to bring new and old, materials, techniques, and ideas together in a true New Orleans celebration.
