Bridget Snow, Warwick, makes paintings that are foremost a study of color. Observing from life allows for a greater breadth of identifiable color. Having studied at RISD with Sewell Sillman, a colleague of Josef Albers, was a pivotal point in Snow recognizing the power of color and its ability to manipulate perception. The paintings in this exhibit are part of an ongoing series, “To Seed.” Learn more, click here.
