The Heat is on- May 25th and 26th

I felt bad about forgetting to update my post, felt everything getting hard here. It sounds too late to recall a memory, but the memory of SNAG conference always remains in my mind. A big event in the third day is exhibitions. Every three dimensional work in these exhibitions attracted my eyes. Like reading a history of SNAG, the exhibition of” Presidential: The Art of Leadership” recorded various characters of SNAG’s presidents. Every piece is so diversified and well crafted. The enameled vessels of Professor Harlan butt, for example, interacted audiences with imageries of nature. When perfect enameling skills, cloisonné, with metaphorical concept, a delicate vessel created a relationship between artist and nature. “SNAG Showcase: 2012 Conference Presenters” Exhibition was another well-designed show. It is really a good idea to show these presenters’ work after we listened their presentations during conference. I have been to the United States mostly four years and attended three SNAG conferences. All exhibitions of every conference gave me a lot of inspiration and offer me to remember various wonderful artists. For me, that’s most important part of my conference experience.

The Student Digital Presentation is also my favorite part. Especially this year, it presented a visual enjoyment to every attendee. I miss the Student Digital Presentation because I never had a chance to be one of them to represent my school. By keep surprising these wonderful ideas with great shooting skills, I felt so bad about my skill of taking images. When watching so many visual images from different schools, I would like to ask SNAG to present a more broaden scope of schools in the future.

In the coming day, May 26th, the second year trunk show was a big event for everybody. I was so glad to be one of presenter at the trunk show. Since I never attended any trunk show, it became a good experience for me. I am curious about every presenter’s work and also curious about who will buy my pieces. Before started, I got a quick glimpse of each booth and one of my friends said to me directly, bifei, I have to teach you how to mark your price. I was laughing because I really did not know how to price my work. The trunk show also became a good learning experience for me. The show was very well organized and I really enjoyed. In here, I really appreciate Natalie, Andrew and all volunteers’ help.

It was a little hurried for me jump from the trunk show to Bettina Specer's lecture. I missed 15 minutes and was glad to catch up with her lecture.

The four days conference run faster and I could not image it is time to go back reality soon. With learned, enjoyed and shared, I would like to make next trip to Toronto SNAG conference if any possibilities.
