Over the recent years that Dana Singer has been the executive
director of SNAG I have engaged in several conversations with her, by
email, on the telephone, and in person. It has always been a very
enjoyable experience, as well as a productive and rewarding dialogue.
She is a person I have felt confident in expressing my views to, and
sharing my opinions with, concerning our organization, and also
Metalsmith as a publication and its editorial content or direction.
I consider Dana to be a wonderful asset to all of the membership of
SNAG, for her personality and professionalism, as well as her insight
and experience, which certainly transcends my own limited perceptions
and perspective as a studio artist.
I feel privileged to consider her a friend, and I would like to
commend her work as an advocate for all of the many diverse and
divergent voices within SNAG, and the metalsmithing community at
Many thanks Dana, for the invaluable contribution you make!
