In fulfillment of The University of Alabama Department of Art and Art History studio graduate program’s terminal degree, Astri Snodgrass presents a body of new work representing her studio research as a painter.  She employs various techniques which examine and attempt to expose an anatomy of painting.  Snodgrass says, “Everything I am making has my sensibility of painting: thinking about movement and light; allowing things to happen.”  Her experimental approach for this exhibition – using painting, photography, and image projection – provides insight for the viewer as well. Snodgrass completed her undergraduate education at Luther College, Decorah, Iowa, in Spanish and Studio Art. She has studied at Universidad Nacional de Cuyo, Universidad de Congreso, Mendoza, Argentina and at Nansenskolen Norsk Humanistisk Akademi, Lillehammer, Norway. Her work has been included in numerous group and solo exhibitions. She is a member of Phi Beta Kappa National Honor Society and Sigma Delta Pi National Collegiate Hispanic Honor Society. There will be a public reception for the artist May 1, 2015, 6:00 – 8:00 p.m.

This exhibition is in partial fulfillment of the Master of Fine Arts degree in the Department of Art and Art History at The University of Alabama. For more information on the graduate programs of the UA department of art and art history, visit this link:
