Doug Snow at the UMFA

Cockscomb II

Last weekend we were able to make it up to the UMFA and take a look at the paintings on display by Doug Snow. I’ve been meaning to go for a while now, but have been busy busy, so I’m glad we finally made it. The show will be up until January 8th, 2012. As far as I know, this is the first real retrospective of Snow’s work since his death in October of 2009, and my advice to everyone is to stop in and check it out. Doug Snow has been one of my favorite Utah painters since I became aware of his artwork, and the exhibit up at the U of U is the best representation I’ve ever seen in one place.

I don’t always like landscape painting, but I love quality Abstract Expressionist painting. Doug Snow blends his landscapes with an abstraction in a way that is just about perfect. The paintings at the top and bottom of this post are by far my favorites, but all of the artwork is fantastic.
