    CALL FOR ENTRY: “Shifting Sites”

    Contemporary metalsmithing is a dynamic field, marked by ever-expanding possibilities for the creation and presentation of work. “Shifting Sites,” SNAG’s 2016 Juried Exhibition in Print produced by Metalsmith, will showcase works that explore the changing spaces of jewelry and objects as they are conceived, made, and displayed. Jurors Eva Eisler, Lauren Fensterstock, and Lori Talcott are seeking examples that creatively engage with their environment.

    For this “Shifting Sites” issue, the emphasis is on location or place as either subject or actual space for the creation and display of work. The jurors welcome works that expand and explore the “where” of contemporary metalsmithing. As a subject for metalsmithing, “site” can be understood as geography, landscape or cityscape and be revealed in imagery or forms that reference natural settings, architecture, urban or rural spaces. Actual space of a piece can refer to where the idea was realized, the physical location of construction, where it is worn, or where it is displayed or sold.

    “Shifting Sites” broadly refers to the changing boundaries in metalsmithing practice.

    We metalsmiths love our hand tools with a passion that can border on obsession. A quality hand tool is familiar to us like a good friend, reliable and there when we need it. However, occasionally our work may change direction and some of our tools outgrow their usefulness. They are left collecting dust and are taking up space. We would like to pass them on to someone who can use them again, but who to give them to? Here’s an idea: Donate your no-longer used tools to the Tool In The Hat project at SNAG and you can solve that problem. By doing so you help a fellow metalsmith who is just starting out in our profession. Your tool will no longer gather dust and will be cherished again by someone who can actually use it. Don’t we all remember our own first hand-me-down hammer?

    What can you contribute? We are looking for old tools, new tools as well as metal bits, old books that still have function, unusual materials such as plastics or wood. All odds and ends from your studio environment are welcome contributions, basically anything gently used (or new) that could be of interest to a fellow metalsmith.

    To donate an item, simply sign it up during conference registration or email Dianne deBeixedon at ddebeixe@odu.edu at any time. Then drop your item off at the conference desk. It’s that easy. Thank you!

    Interested in donating to one of the Silent Auctions at the SNAG conference?

    Here's a link, if you can let us know what you'll be bringing and the approximate value of it we can get you paperwork for your taxes. Thanks!

    Yup, you better get on this asap. Early bird registration with favorable rates will end on 3-16. See you at the conference!

    Pass It On

    One can never have too many tools, right? True, but sometimes tools and materials collect dust in our shops and take up space, mental and otherwise. The necessity of the tool and its purpose may have long passed as our work evolved. Now along comes a bright-eyed metalsmith, fresh in the field, who could actually use that hammer, that shear, that thingy you have and create something new and great with it. Why not donate your whatchamacallit to SNAG’s Tool In The Hat project? Get rid of some clutter and do something that will enrich others in our SNAG community and do some good for our field.

    To give a tool, simply sign up during conference registration or email Dianne deBeixedon at ddebeixe@odu.edu. Then drop your item at our conference desk. It’s easy.

    We are looking for old tools, metal bits, old books that still have function, unusual materials such as plastics or wood. Odds and ends, basically anything gently used or new that could be of interest to someone else. Let’s see what you got. Thanks for doing this!

    Is there a dirty metalsmith in the house? Help is on the way and just in the right shape: Anvil Soap on a Rope! Your metalsmith will delight in rubbing this anvil all over him/herself and you too will get what you want: A cleaner version of your charming artist. Win-win.

    Two flavors to order, oatmeal or coffee. Simply get both! You can’t go wrong.

    I was told today that I should be doing a better job THANKING my people for all their hard work. I thought I was usually pretty good at this, but maybe I need to up my efforts at this critical juncture. So here it is:
    To Gwynne Rukenbrod Smith- the BESTEST Executive Director I could wish for. To Alaina Clarke the BESTEST Program Director I could wish for. To Tara Jeklin, the BESTEST office manager I could wish for. To Emma Zanetti who is new on our staff and already shows great promise to be the BESTEST too: I know you guys are (currently) working your butts off, doing double shifts, running around crossing the t's and making sure things will run as smoothly as they can at the conference next week. You are doing waayyyy more than your job description tells you to, especially Gwynne taking over a motherload of things that would otherwise fall down the drain.

    Unless you, dear reader, have been on our board or on one of our committees, you really have no idea what is involved in making a big conference like a SNAG conference successful, trying to juggle all the balls, make everyone happy and keeping the big picture in mind as well. It is a gargantuan task and as a bonus everyone's a critic of your efforts. No good deed goes unpunished.

    I want you and everyone reading this to know that I am very grateful and thankful to have GREAT staff. Please be nice to them and when you see them at the conference, say THANK YOU. It would mean so much.

    Melissa Cameron goes to SNAGneXt:
    "At the modified and re-branded SNAG conference this year I'm very pleased to have been invited to speak in the SNAGspark portion of the program, where I will be giving a presentation entitled 'Holistic Thinking: Interconnection in Jewels and Practice.' There, among a few other things, I'll share my "tips for maintaining a sustainable creative practice, gleaned from sources near and far." The basic premise of my talk is that I get around, and in all the places I go, I've noticed a few common threads that help make for robust communities (first hint) and economically sustainable jewellery practices."

    UPCOMING LECTURES at SOFA CHICAGO, November 5-8, 2015

    SNAG-sponsored lectures on Friday, November 6.

    Since 2001, SNAG has sponsored lectures at the International Expositions of Sculpture Objects & Functional Art (SOFA). We bring some of the most interesting contemporary jewelers and metalsmiths into the public eye. All lectures are free to SOFA attendees.

    8:30-9:30 a.m. – Lynn Batchelder, Sooyeon Kim and Laura Wood
    SNAG Emerging Artists: Lynn Batchelder, Sooyeon Kim and Laura Wood – These three artists speak about the design and development of their innovative jewelry. (Batchelder and Kim are represented by Charon Kransen Arts; Wood is represented by Donna Schneier Fine Arts)

    9:30-10:30 a.m. – Jamie Bennett
    Jamie Bennett: Drawing and Making – Rather than serving as renderings of his jewelry, Bennett’s drawings represent fragments of ideas and images that instigate new pieces. The relationship of these separate creative endeavors will be explored in this lecture. (Represented by Galerie Noel Guyomarc’h)

    10:30-11:30 a.m. – Donald Friedlich
    Donald Friedlich: Things that Make my Heart Beat Faster – Friedlich discusses the development of his innovative glass and gold jewelry, as well as sources that have inspired him over a 40-year career. (Represented by Hedone Gallery)

    John Iversen in conversation with Toni Greenbaum: Other Fancy Stuff - Jeweler John Iversen and art historian Toni Greenbaum will discuss Iversen’s unique ability to make pieces praised equally by the “art,” “craft,” and “fine” jewelry communities. (Represented by Hedone Gallery)

    Thanks to Don Friedlich for organizing the SNAG lectures!
