Due to complications related to the Coronavirus pandemic, the 2020 SNAG (Society of North American Goldsmiths) Conference has been canceled.
The RINGS! exhibition will now take place in May-June of next year. Check back later in 2020 for more details. These dates are tentative.
RINGS! offers a glimpse into the boundless creative freedom revealed within the ring form. This international selection brings together over one hundred rings that demonstrate the artists’ wide-ranging expressions through a variety of aesthetic and conceptual ideas. From the traditional techniques of metalsmithing to avant garde materials and approaches, the rings on view will offer a new examination of the cultural, political, and personal meanings of the ring itself. Countries represented in the exhibition: Australia, Austria, England, Germany, India, Japan, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Russia, Scotland, Sweden, Switzerland, and the United States.
Organized by Helen Drutt, researched by Elizabeth Essner with assistance from Colleen Terrell.
