Exhibition Description

The Feel of Paint is an exhibition of large-scale, highly impastoed mixed media paintings by one of Washington’s most prolific artists—while relying on self and not the input of assistants nor mechanics to execute her creativity. Snowden is akin to a force of nature. The works in this exhibition, all of them recent, are big in every way—in daring, in dimension, in painterly virtuosity, in physical weight, and in emotional reach. Snowden explains: “I want viewers to look at my work and see if they can become the paint.”

This exhibition is dedicated to the artist’s parents:
Dr. George W. and Mrs. Jessie B. Snowden.
