Join us on Saturday, July 13th at The Drawing Room for a delicious picnic lunch and artist talk with Steve Snell. The artist talk will start promptly at 4pm.
Snell is a contemporary painter who is interested in Americana as it relates to rural small-town life, the exploration of the wild, and the aesthetics of adventuring.
He creates brightly hued monochromatic portraits of wild animals and classically masculine American figures like Burt Reynolds along with clever renderings of the contemporary outdoorsman’s supplies like pretzels and gummy bears. These objects are thrust unnaturally into both demure, watery landscapes and intensely saturated natural backgrounds where organic shapes give way to symmetrical, geometric compositions that elevate these simple objects into something much greater. Through these juxtapositions Snell explores notions of rugged masculinity, the historical adventures of adventurers like Luis and Clark, and what it looks like to be a contemporary outdoorsman.
A ticket reserves a picnic seat, lunch & curated River Snack grab bags. $15 for adults and $5 for kiddos under 12.
