The Jewelry and Metals Survey (JAMS) is SNAG’s annual survey of jewelry and metals in contemporary art, architecture, craft, and design created in the previous year by emerging and established artists, as well as students, selected by a jury of experts including curators, artists, designers, gallery owners, and historians. In showcasing approximately 200-juried objects, each publication highlights the wide range of current ideas and making practices in the field of jewelry and metals.
SNAG invites artists, craftspeople, designers, public artists, and architects worldwide to submit images of new works focusing on metal and/or jewelry for the 2019 JAMS. Everyone from any sector of the field at any level of experience is encouraged to apply. Curators are also welcome to submit recent work purchased by their institution.
Extended deadline: June 26th, 2019 11:59 pm MST.
