Gilda Snowden has always been drawn to the complexities of nature and history, specifically the documentation of history that is closest to her own personal experience. Painting and relief-based sculpture have always been her primary mediums. The series which she will discuss includes MONUMENTS to her parents and friends; large paintings that chronicle frightening episodes translated by way of dreams into metaphorical TORNADOES; a desire to see, yet not completely depict, her own visage in a series of silhouetted SELF PORTRAITS; a collection of assemblages based on the immediate urban setting (titled CITYALBUMS), the use of CHAIRS as visual metaphors for power and as vehicles for studying abstraction; and most recently the FLORA URBANA series of encaustic paintings of flowers in urban settings. All of these varied subjects have as their common theme a desire to chronicle or record a visual narrative.

This event is free and open to the public.
