June 3, 2021 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
The Montgomery Museum of Art & History will host an exhibition of watercolors by Palmyra-based artist William R. Snow from May 4th to June 29th in the Lewis Miller Art Gallery, with an outdoor meet-the-artist reception on June 3rd from 5pm-7pm. Proceeds from any sales during the exhibition will benefit The Community Foundation of the New River Valley.
William (Bill) Snow is a native of White Plains, New York. He also lived in both Colorado and New Jersey, where he and his wife raised their two children. Having always enjoyed visits to Virginia, Bill and his wife retired to Palmyra in 2013 to be closer to his children and four grandsons. Bill has been involved in art almost his entire life. He attended the University of Arizona where he earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in 1969. Beginning his career in New York City, he went on to work in the fields of audio-visual production, advertising, and graphic design for over 40 years. During this period, he painted in watercolor in his spare time. His paintings are representational in style and include landscapes, still lifes, wildlife, and occasional figures.
Bill’s watercolors have won several awards and can be found in a number of private collections around the country. He has exhibited in the Central Virginia Watercolor Guild Exhibition, the Virginia Watercolor Society Annual Show, the Rocky Mountain National Watermedia Exhibition and the annual American Watercolor Society Show. He is a member of the Fluvanna County Art Association and the Central Virginia Watercolor Guild, and his work appeared at the Moss Arts Center in the 2019 New River Art Juried Biennial. He is also a signature member of the Virginia Watercolor Society and an associate member of the American Watercolor Society.
The reception will take place outdoors with drinks and light hors d’oeuvres. Attendees should wear a mask while inside the gallery space to view the exhibition.
