2016 SNAG/crafthaus Scholarship Recipient

Crafthaus is pleased to announce that jurors Gwynne Rukenbrod Smith (SNAG Executive Director) and Alaina Clarke (SNAG Program Director) awarded the 2016 SNAG/crafthaus Conference Scholarship to Crafthaus Member Olivia Shih. Olivia will attend the Asheville conference in May.

Olivia plans to blog about gender and jewelry by interviewing artists who do not shy away from words like “gender issues,” “feminism,” and “sex”; analyzing the work of said artists and the reach of their work, and reinvigorating conversation about gender in jewelry by putting together an online exhibition.

More to follow when Olivia begins her blog. (Scholarship Info.)
