It’s an absolute gift when someone dedicates their career to discovering, supporting, and presenting artists whose works consequentially affect the way we interpret culture, enduring even decades afterwards. Thank you, Virginia Dwan (1931 - 2022).

REVIEW: Joan Snyder, 𝘛𝘰 𝘉𝘦𝘤𝘰𝘮𝘦 𝘈 𝘗𝘢𝘪𝘯𝘵𝘪𝘯𝘨
The Brooklyn Rail, July/August 2022

“Snyder’s paint handling has only become more and more visceral, more impassioned. Most importantly for the artist, as well as the women painters with whom she feels closely connected, is the inclusion of personal narrative itself: for Snyder, women had stories to tell which men did not go near. It may well be that this ability to confront highly personal emotional states has given her permission to be at once more expressive and more experimental. Not least, and evident in this exhibition, is that her painterly approach continues to become increasingly fearless.”
- Norman L. Kleeblatt

The paintings in this exhibition reflect the artist’s engagement with the land, referencing the generative and vital state of earth and water and acknowledging impulses that access nature as a guide for connecting with the most fundamental human emotions.

on view through June 14, 2022

For Joan Snyder, painting is, much like the process of planting and sowing, in itself an act of generative growth: begin with a ground – then add, layer, combine, build – and culminate in the fruition of the image. In a recent essay, Ecce Femina: Joan Snyder, Rhonda Lieberman wrote, “As Proust conjured a riverbank of words, Snyder’s paintings are not depictions, but their own reality. The materiality of the paint and references to flatness (appended doodads, the drippy hand-prints) assert themselves through Snyder’s earthy motifs to weird and powerful effect.” The gardener’s process of nourishing these elements—giving them means to thrive by irrigating, pruning, separating, etc.—is analogous to Snyder’s process of painting. In these newest works, Snyder is steeped in the inquiry and quest to find out what happens when her images develop from that process.

American Art Catalogues presents 𝘔 𝘚𝘵𝘳𝘦𝘦𝘵 by Sylvia Snowden.

Sylvia Snowden’s M Street series is focused upon images of people she knew from her immediate surroundings in the Shaw neighborhood of Washington, D.C.. In the mid-1970s, in the midst of ongoing gentrification and displacement, Snowden felt the urgency of the lives of people she encountered in her neighborhood – many of whom were transient, unemployed, and/or unhoused – and she responded to her perceptions of their energies in her work. In 1988, critic Alice Thorson wrote a now-essential essay, titled ‘Sylvia Snowden: Engaging Expressionism’, for the New Art Examiner in which she observed that “a sense of identification with her subjects gives Snowden’s work a rare conviction. Few painters have peered so deeply into the human heart, or proved so adept at divulging its secrets.” As Snowden created each of the M Street works, she responded to the impact and individuality of each person she chose to paint, honoring their presence. The dramas of Snowden’s subjects’ struggles, and the sheer grace of their ability to survive and thrive, references the strength of delicate beauty in the human figure that Snowden’s art celebrates.

The catalogue features a text by curator Gavin Delahunty, a foreword by Franklin Parrasch, an interview with artist Nathaniel Mary Quinn, and an essay by Dr. Rebecca Van Diver.

𝘔 𝘚𝘵𝘳𝘦𝘦𝘵 is the first monograph published of Snowden’s work.

𝘑𝘢𝘤𝘬𝘪𝘦 𝘍𝘦𝘳𝘳𝘢𝘳𝘢 [currently on view]

Ferrara’s sculptures, constructed of units of pine, maple, birch, and poplar woods, often describe arenas, bath houses, and tower-like structures. In an essay from Ferrara’s 1992 retrospective exhibition catalogue, art historian Nancy Princenthal wrote, “Ferrara’s sensibility is rooted in order as a pleasure principle. To appreciate her work is to share her joy in systems of organization, their multiplicity, and their permutations … The sensations she wants to recapture and share are imprecise and intimate.”

Jackie Ferrara engages a repetitious or iterative approach across media. Her colored pencil-and-ink works on paper, which depict spaces and places informed by our world but evade specific identification, contain embedded Morse code references relaying visual and atmospheric links. In Ferrara’s sculptures, units of pine, maple, birch, and poplar woods are cut and constructed into arenas, bath houses, and tower-like structures. In an essay from Ferrara’s 1992 retrospective exhibition catalogue, art historian Nancy Princenthal wrote, “Ferrara’s sensibility is rooted in order as a pleasure principle. To appreciate her work is to share her joy in systems of organization, their multiplicity, and their permutations … The sensations she wants to recapture and share are imprecise and intimate.”

~ FINAL HOURS ~

Rafael Delacruz considers a post-digital world by way of traditional means as he weaves surreal narratives in his canvases. … Within each piece, Delacruz rejects stylistic monotony in deference to dynamism and effect, and obscures and reveals information and events in vital syncopation. In many works, painted fields of color nestle into one another like fieldstones, establishing physical and emotional atmospheres and providing compositional (and, occasionally, literal) screens for the scenes unfolding within.

𝘈𝘭𝘭 𝘙𝘰𝘢𝘥𝘴 𝘓𝘦𝘢𝘥 𝘵𝘰 𝘔𝘰𝘳𝘦 𝘙𝘰𝘢𝘥𝘴 celebrates DeWoody’s vision and collection; guest curator Franklin Parrasch writes, “There is a rhyme. There is a reason. These connections begin with subtle pathways, like salt licks in the forest marking the beginnings of deer paths, that become cow paths, that lead to trails, that lead to roads. All roads lead to more roads.”

Rafael Delacruz considers a post-digital world by way of traditional means as he weaves surreal narratives in his canvases. Delacruz’s works, which typically employ painterly brushstrokes in tandem with flattened, screen-printed imagery, emulate a distorted and surreal, pixelated world of nomadic existence. Often rendered head-on, Delacruz mines a steady vernacular of near-universal, clip art-like icons; most common are day-to-day staples (e.g. apples, coffee mugs, baseball caps, sinks, and beds) and vehicular references (e.g. buses, cars, tires, shopping carts, and flying contraptions). Rather than imagined or implied space, these images appear to dictate both narrative hierarchy and visual outcomes.

Sylvia Snowden holds both Bachelor of Arts and Master of Arts degrees from Howard University (Washington, D.C.). She received a scholarship to Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture in 1964 (Skowhegan, ME), and has a certificate from Académie de la Grande Chaumière (Paris, France). Snowden has taught at Cornell University (Ithaca, NY), Howard University (Washington, D.C.), and Yale University (New Haven, CT), and has served as an artist-in-residence, a panelist, visiting artist, lecturer/instructor, and curator in universities, galleries, and art schools in the United States and internationally. In 2018, Snowden’s work was notably featured in the landmark exhibition ‘Magnetic Fields: Expanding American Abstraction, 1960-Today’ at the National Museum for Women in the Arts (Washington, D.C.) alongside fellow Howard University alumnae Mildred Thompson, Alma Thomas, and Mary Louise Lovelace. Snowden has also exhibited at the National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C.; the Corcoran Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C.; Montclair Art Museum, Montclair, NJ; Baltimore Museum of Art, Baltimore, MD; Herbert F. Johnson Museum of Art at Cornell University, Ithaca, NY; The Phillips Collection, Washington, D.C.; Heckscher Museum of Art, Huntington, NY; and the National Archives for Black Women’s History (NABWH) of the Mary McLeod Bethune Council House National Historic Site (MAMC), Washington, D.C..

In these works, Sylvia Snowden visually conceived of the underlying nature of her neighbors using her signature über-impasto application of acrylic paints, evocative of Chaim Soutine, Kazuo Shiraga, and Georg Baselitz, in tandem with oil pastels. These interpretive portraits insistently elicit basal responses to the expressions established: angst, joy, deliberation, suffering. In several instances within this body of work, Snowden established a sense of physical space and containment within the limits of the framed Masonite support, and her subjects push their whorled limbs – feet, hands, shoulders, thighs – urgently against the bounds of the picture plane. Snowden’s love of paint is the connective tissue between her motive and technical prowess as an artist and her vast spiritual empathy towards her subjects.

Sylvia Snowden was born in Raleigh, NC, but spent her childhood in New Orleans and Baton Rouge, LA. At the age of 14, she and her family moved to Washington, D.C.. Snowden’s parents encouraged her artistic pursuits at a young age, which led to her enrollment in the art department at Howard University. There, she studied under James Porter, Lois Maillou Jones, James Wells, and David C. Driskell, receiving her B.A. in 1963 and her M.A. in 1965.

Dan Beachy-Quick’s COSMIC DANCER, an account of Charles Ross’ earthwork 𝘚𝘵𝘢𝘳 𝘈𝘹𝘪𝘴, now in Artforum:

“COSMOS IS A WORD UNIVERSAL IN SCOPE, but hidden inside it, like the intimate drawers of a jewelry box, other meanings are kept. 𝘖𝘳𝘥𝘦𝘳: of stars, of world, of self. 𝘗𝘢𝘵𝘵𝘦𝘳𝘯: macrocosm, microcosm. 𝘍𝘰𝘳𝘮. 𝘖𝘳𝘯𝘢𝘮𝘦𝘯𝘵. 𝘈𝘥𝘰𝘳𝘯𝘮𝘦𝘯𝘵. The light-year dance of galaxies around one another is cosmic; so is the pearl-drop pendant hanging below the throat. Absolute zero and blood-heat braided together, as is that intimacy between self and universe entire—a fact somehow known before it’s learned, forgotten before it’s ever been grasped—may well be the fundamental discovery needed to put your foot on 𝘚𝘵𝘢𝘳 𝘈𝘹𝘪𝘴’s first step.”

Anne Appleby: A Hymn for the Mother
August 6-December 20, 2021 at the Missoula Art Museum, Montana.

Observing and responding to the forest surrounding her home and studio outside of Jefferson City, Montana, Anne Appleby distills her perceptions of natural elements as they perpetually alter through their life cycles. Appleby states, “I have spent the last twenty-three years painting the landscape of my Montana home, in a reductive language observing the cyclical nature of trees and plants. I use this language in the exhibition but also explore a traditional style of romantic landscape painting.”
