MINNESOTA THE SOCIETY OF NORTH AMERICAN GOLDSMITHS hosts its 2014 SNAG Conference in Minneapolis from April 23 – 26. With the general demise of America's traditional industries, a shift in social consciousness has emerged from the excesses and dehumanization of the global market, leading to the resurgence of people buying locally made objects and supporting their communities. Titled From Grains to Gold, SNAG's forty-third annual conference will explore the relationship between the maker and the materials at a time when the materials, techniques and processes are rapidly changing, and examine the growing trends of consumers' desire for the "hand-made" and—most importantly— what it really means to be "hand-made" in the twenty-first century. www.snagmetalsmith.org/conferences/meta-mosaic.
