The Delaware Division of the Arts Mezzanine Gallery will present an exhibition, The Sky’s the Limit, by Karin Snoots from Oct. 4 to 25. The gallery, open weekdays from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., is in the Carvel State Office Building, 820 N. French St., Wilmington. There will be a reception to meet the artist from 5 to 8 p.m., Oct. 4 as part of Wilmington’s Art Loop.
This solo exhibition of Snoots’ work will showcase a series of paintings on canvas, surfboards, and street signs. The artist’s newly developed contemporary style is a significant shift from her more traditional renderings.
Through her paintings, Snoots’ fundamental mission is to have her art serve as a catalyst for environmental awareness and conservation. She finds inspiration in the drama of nature and is constantly challenged to capture the dramatic sense of scale in space and light.
An Individual Artist Fellow in Painting, Snoots has exhibited her work regionally and locally and is a signature member of both the American Society of Marine Artists and Artists for Conservation Foundation and a member of the Ocean Artists Society. Snoots has formal training as a commercial illustrator, but her passionate interest in nature has moved her art far beyond illustration.
The artist received her degree from American University and currently lives in Harbeson.
