An exhibition of paintings by artist Katy Schneider will be presented in the Sue and Eugene Mercy Jr. Gallery in the Richmond Art Center from November 7 through December 7, and Ms. Schneider will be a Visiting Artist in the RAC in December. A student still life exhibition will be on display concurrently in the Barnes and Wilde Gallery.
Katy Schneider teaches drawing and painting at Smith College. She is a recipient of Guggenheim and National Endowment for the Arts fellowships, and she has earned awards from the National Academy of Design and the Academy of Arts and Letters. Ms. Schneider has received accolades for her picture book illustrations, including the Bank Street College of Education's Book Award. Ms. Schneider grew up in New York City in a family of nine. Her work focuses on themes related to her upbringing — making the most of a small space, organizing chaos, and uncovering family dynamics — and she uses the power of light to tell a story in her compositions.
Ms. Schneider exhibits nationally. Her work is featured in numerous collections, including the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, the New Britain Museum, and the Smith College Museum of Art. Connect to the artist's website for more information.
The Barnes & Wilde still life exhibit will feature work by students in College-Level Advanced Placement Studio Art.
