Print Patron Membership

 

This November SNAP’s new Print Patron program will once again be open for enrolment.

This level of membership has been devised for those who want to continue supporting SNAP in a meaningful way, participate in our growing membership and help the organization achieve its goals through a direct financial contribution.

Membership at the SNAP Print Patron level is $500 annually. Print Patrons receive all regular benefits of an individual SNAP membership, a limited edition fine art print commissioned specifically for this program and a charitable tax receipt for a $250 value.

Through your participation in this program you will help SNAP achieve healthy and sustainable growth while maintaining our priority commitments outlined in our current strategic plan.

About our 2018 Print Patron Program:

SNAP will have 15 spots available at this exclusive membership level. Our 2018 Print Patrons will receive a 16”x20” limited edition print from Alberta artist Jewel Shaw. The edition is scheduled to be delivered to our Patrons on December 8th, at Print Affair.

Last year’s inaugural program sold out very fast. Please be in touch with us directly if you would like to join this important group of SNAP supporters in 2018. We look forward to hearing from you!

About the Print Patron 2018 Artist

JEWEL SHAW, Nêhiyawak (Cree)/Métis, was born and raised in High Prairie, Alberta. She earned a Masters of Fine Art in Printmaking from the University of Alberta, Edmonton (2008). Her work has been shown nationally and internationally in various group exhibitions, most recent include: Novosibirsk International Triennial, State Art Museum, Novosibirsk, Russia (2018), Li Salay, Alberta Gallery of Art, Edmonton, AB (2018), New Impressions: Experiments in Contemporary Native American Printmaking, IAIA Museum of Contemporary Native Arts, Albuquerque, New Mexico (2017), Kyoto Hanga 2016: The International Print Exhibition Canada & Japan, Kyoto Municiple Museum of Art, Kyoto, Japan (2016), Weaving the Past into the Present, Contemporary Native American Printmaking, International PrintCentre New York, Chelsea Gallery, New York (2015), Six Artists Etching, Shoestring Press, Brooklyn (2015); LandMarks: Indigenous Communities Connect, Tamarind Institute, Albuquerque (2014); The View From Here: Alberta Biennial for Contemporary Art, Alberta Gallery of Art, Edmonton (2013).

Shaw has attended artist residencies in Canada, the United States, and Australia; has been the recipient of many grants and awards; and her work can be found in various publications, and collections in Canada and abroad. In her latest solo exhibition, Memory Bones, Red Deer Museum and Art Gallery (2017) she explores memory, identity and loss through symbolic imagery and found objects. She uses traditional printmaking, drawing and digital media to illustrate personal narratives that investigate the collective and genetic memory of trauma and grief. The objects, images, and text are metaphors, intended to trigger memory and elicit stories that may otherwise remain buried.
