Jeanne Jerousek-McAninch – Volunteer Spotlight

Jeanne Jerousek-McAninch – Volunteer Spotlight

After earning an MFA at Kent State in 1974 in painting and jewelry, Tucson became my home base. For several years I taught Basic Design and Drawing classes at Pima Community College. In 1976 teaching jewelry, enameling and photography at Tucson Parks & Recreation I started doing chain making demonstrations at Tucson Gem & Mineral Show. My self-published book, a compilation of these demos, Chain Making Link By Link appeared in 1977. At that time we started offering City Visiting Artists workshops. Our first was Eleanor Moty’s Photo Etching Workshop. She is our Patron Saint of Workshops!

Volunteering since 1978 for several non-profits (Arizona Designer Craftsmen, Tucson Visiting Artists Consortium, Friends of Yuma Symposium, and most recently SNAG) morphed into grant writing, doing publicity, being statutory agent but mainly coordinating lectures and workshops by visiting artists. Hundreds of workshops later, ADC, an “all volunteer” organization, currently offers 10 to 12 visiting artists lectures and workshops a year. In 2012 ADC hosted the SNAG conference. Multi-faceted educational venues, lectures, exhibitions, and networking in epic proportions. Tucson and Mesa Arts Center pre-conference workshops followed by Demo Days made possible by many volunteers from ADC and MAC resulting in ties to an exquisite venue for future workshops. Frequently, my personal projects have taken a back seat to my “non-profit obligations.” And currently, Historic Chain Making is nearly done.

Letter from the President, Sue Amendolara – October 2012

SNAG had a busy summer and there is a lot to share with the membership. Our new virtual exhibition space opened on our website in October with the “Body Adorned” exhibition juried by Gail M. Brown. We have been working on this for a long time and are very proud of it so be sure to check out this beautiful new space and great show.
