Mesa Public Library Art Gallery is featuring the work of Livy Onalee Snyder during the month of February in an exhibit entitled “Back to the Wall: Snapshots of the Evolving Aesthetic”.
A former student of Los Alamos High School and New Mexico School for the Arts, Snyder is now a Denver-based artist and is working on a degree in Photography/Painting and Art History at the University of Colorado.
Snyder’s work was exhibited at Fuller Lodge Art Center when she was just a sophomore. She also was involved in community art projects such as the electrical box murals, fire hydrant art and ScienceFest installations.
In addition to her college classes, she has been involved in staging and participating in several exhibits in the Denver area and manages the UC Auraria Campus photo lab.
After returning from Florence, Italy this past year, where she learned historical photographic processes, she decided to pursue more mixed and alternative media; such as seen in the Back to the Wall exhibit.
“My work is heavily influenced by theories surrounding social and psychological relationships with aesthetics in our everyday lives,” Snyder says. “The photographs are from various local and international locations and serve to demonstrate the evolving aesthetic of buildings by means of mark making such as graffiti or street art which has been covered over by public regulation”.
The gallery is open 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and noon to 5 p.m. Sunday.
