Amanda Snyder

JUN 30 – OCT 7, 2012

Reclusive and dedicated, Amanda Snyder produced hundreds of artworks during her career. Her early representational paintings grew increasingly modernist, influenced by Cezanne, Picasso, and van Gogh. Working from her home, she befriended several of Oregon’s leading artists, especially C. S. Price and Charles Heaney, and exchanged letters and Christmas cards with French artist Georges Rouault. She had 32 one-woman exhibitions, including two major exhibitions at the Portland Art Museum. A lover of the “simple life,” her home inspired her and is reflected in her favorite subjects. The exhibition presents 74 works by this Northwest original.

Organized by the Portland Art Museum and curated by Bonnie Laing-Malcolmson, The Arlene and Harold Schnitzer Curator of Northwest Art. Funded in part by a bequest of Eugene E. Snyder and the Exhibition Series Sponsors.
