Call Type: Exhibitions
Entry Deadline: 9/16/19
This is an open call to all current members of Society of North American Goldsmiths (SNAG). You must be a current member of SNAG to enter and if your piece is accepted your membership must remain current through the end of the exhibition. To Join SNAG please go here.
The first SNAG exhibition, Goldsmith ‘70, was held in 1970 and was curated by Stanley Lechtzin and John Prip. It took place at the Minnesota Museum of Art in Minneapolis. This exhibition highlighted the proficiency of an art form (jewelry and metal vessels) that more or less began after World War II and was, at that time, found to be maturing to the point of being ready for a museum exhibition.
We are looking for you to be inspired, whether by an specific piece in the original exhibition or by another piece of work by an artist that participated in the Goldmsith ’70 exhibtion. Goldsmith ‘20 will be a nod in the direction of our predecessors, with a modern twist.
