Nov 4th –
Dec 30th, 2022
Opening Reception: Friday, 6-8PM, Nov. 4th. 2022
Please join us on First Friday, November 4th, to welcome the artist, George Snyder, and his wife Jennifer as they attend the reception for the show.
For nearly five decades, George Snyder has methodically developed and transformed a personal visual language which he has used to create metaphors for his moods and concerns. What might appear to the casual observer to be similar, almost decorative compositions, on closer inspection reveal complexities and variations in tone, content and form that suggest larger meanings, about art and the art world, about politics, and about Snyder’s personal life and experiences. Snyder’s visual vocabulary is unabashedly beautiful and appealing and at the same time it is self-consciously critical of that appeal. The riotous color and dynamic forms of his works both celebrate and implicate the spectacle of mass culture to which they indirectly refer.
– Dr. Patricia Mathews and Stanley Mathews, AIA Oberlin, Ohio
“In his bright, vibrant, beautifully structured paintings and constructions, George Snyder uses color and pattern with the taste and sophistication of both the great contemporary colorists and the best craftsmen. This combination gives the work dynamic visual presence as well as a connection with traditional art forms.”
– Robert Gabriel, George Snyder
