Final Light: V. Douglas Snow in Retrospect - Exhibition Views
V. Douglas Snow
Salt Lake Art Center and the Utah Museum of Fine Arts (UMFA) are pleased to present Final Light: V. Douglas Snow in Retrospect, a joint exhibition celebrating the work of eminent Utah artist Doug Snow (1927-2009). A painter, printmaker, and professor, Doug Snow lived and worked in Utah’s red rock country for over half a century. Organized by guest curator Frank McEntire, Final Light: V. Douglas Snow in Retrospect presents defining works from Snow’s career, featuring 35 paintings from private and public collections across the West. The retrospective exhibition examines Snow’s early Abstract Expressionist-inspired period from the 1950s, as well as later works from the last three decades of his life, which meld abstraction with realism to express his passion for Utah’s southern desert. Exhibition held in the Street Gallery Space.
