misilversmith logoDeadline Extended to Monday, April 6th

For 72 years, the Michigan Silversmiths Guild’s mission has been to broaden knowledge of Metalsmithing and to facilitate communication and interaction between metalsmiths.

This juried exhibition aims to continue that mission by bringing together the diverse work of our current members. The connections and artistic expressions our members have forged will allow the guild to remain strong into the future. The SNAG conference theme Grit to Gold fits our members perfectly, as they continue to persevere and explore materials, techniques and modes of expression inspired by our history while creating something new and “golden.”

The SNAG has now canceled its 2020 Conference due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Connection+Expression will go on as a virtual exhibition on the Michigan Silversmiths Guild Website
