Ruiz-Healy Art is pleased to present its first solo exhibition for the work of Hills Snyder, Altered States (Part Four), an ongoing visual project and written series by the Texas-based artist. The exhibit features 120 drawings based on photographs gathered in Oklahoma, Texas, Colorado, Wyoming, Montana, Utah, Nevada, California, New Mexico, Kansas, and South Dakota. Check it out on Friday at Ruiz-Healy Art in San Antonio!
Hills Snyder is an artist, musician, writer, educator, and curator. He was born in Lubbock, Texas and has resided in San Antonio since 1992. Snyder’s artworks are found in public collections across the country including Ruby City, San Antonio, TX; Nicolaysen Art Museum, Casper, Wyoming; Microsoft Art Collection, Redmond, Washington; San Antonio Museum of Art, San Antonio, TX; McNay Art Museum, San Antonio, TX, and many more.
As stated by Snyder, his travels follow a line that “goes through towns selected by virtue of their names—not because they are odd or funny, but because they are evocative—emotional states, hoped for ideals, downers, and reckonings…” Nowhere, Happy, Bonanza, Lost Springs, Recluse, Keystone, Consequences, Eldorado, and Waterloo, are among the places visited by the artist.
Inspired by his travels, his personal and artistic quest to push boundaries and the power that subjectivity wields over sense of place, the work (and series) is at once dense and airy, simple and profound, playful and contemplative. Enjoy this free display at Ruiz-Healy Art on January 4th beginning at 11:00 a.m.
