Metalsmith Magazine and the Society of North American Goldsmiths (SNAG) will sponsor an international conference on the topics of advanced materials and design Feb 28- March 3, 2001 in Richmond, VA. For a brief period of a week, VCU Crafts Department Chair Jim Meyers will host the foremost designers and metalsmiths from all over the world and nation. The conference will consist of lectures, presentations slides, videos, and demonstrations. During the planning phase, Jim Meyers asked John Crutchfield of Artemis Gallery to Chair the Exhibition Committee. Within this exciting period we hope to mount 4 to 5 exhibitions in area galleries featuring metal and advanced materials. There will be a competition with $10,000 in awards and an advertising campaign involving national media coverage. For more information please contact: John Crutchfield at (804) 254-1755.
