Gay Day- Joe Snyder, Artist

Work in progress, Marina View Redondo Beach
Authors who write about being excellent in your profession demands that you be authentic. In the blogger world there is a belief that the blogger should blog often and write about every day life. Like what happened today. I have decided to embrace this idea, so today, I will write to my audience about my very dear friend, Joe Snyder and some great news from the art world.

Inspiring news from Snyder Studios is that Bud Shark, a very well known Printer from Colorado, and a colection of works that he owns, are being sought by the CU Art Musuem. Here is a link to an article that will tell you more about Bud Shark.

Well as it turns out, our man Joe Snyder was one of the many talented artists who were lucky enough to print with Bud in his studio. Check out the collections at The Sharkive and you will see a collection of pieces done by Joe and many other artists. So here is the news.....this article of May 16, 2016 states that CU Boulder is looking to acquire the Sharkive Collection. This is very exciting for Joe and I wanted to share it because many of you have originals of his work. Here is a quote taken from the article in the Campus News.

" CU Art Museum Director Sandra Firmin said the museum will be a natural steward of the Sharkive collection because of its already rich collection of prints that spans the 16th century to today. The Sharkive, which will be maintained by the museum once it is acquired, covers the printmaking process from beginning to end, including over 700 signed limited-edition prints and more than 2,000 related materials including artist studies, trial proofs, unique proofs with paper alternatives and artist and printer's notes and correspondence"
