Philadelphia has long been recognized for its creative community of professional artists; in particular, its large population of artists who focus on studio craft disciplines that include ceramics, fibers, glass, metals, plastics, and wood. Philadelphia also has a vibrant mix of colleges and universities that feature crafts-related degree programs as well as galleries solely dedicated to promote contemporary studio crafts. As a result, the City has frequently been the site of international art conferences that celebrate and communicate the importance of their respective mediums. In 2009, Philadelphia is proud to be the host city for the annual conference of The Society of North American Goldsmiths (SNAG), a nonprofit organization that has an international membership of more than 3,000 artists, educators, and students.

Jewelry and Metal Arts: Philadelphia has been organized in conjunction with the 2009 SNAG conference and features work by 17 Philadelphia area artists - Hratch Babikian, Douglas Bucci, Sharon Church, Janine DeCresenzo, Amanda Elizabeth Olsen, Steven Ford and David Forlano, Jill Baker Gower, Daniella Kerner and Stanley Lechtzin, Monika Krol, Rod McCormick, Bruce Metcalf, Christina Miller, Susan Myers, Vickie Sedman, and Marjorie Simon. From objects to jewelry, this exhibition presents a variety of approaches to metal arts including both traditional and nontraditional materials and techniques.
