Jenny Snider: "All Painted. All Black and White. All Dancing"

February 23 – March 29, 1980

JENNY SNIDER'S installation of almost 300 gouache and acrylic drawings in the Large Gallery is subtitled "All Painted. All Black and White. All Dancing". The drawings range in size from 9" x 12" to 7' x 35' and were begun in 1978. Their imagery derives from the dance sequences in early Fred Astaire movies as well as from photographs of anonymous social dancers. Of her installation SNIDER says, "...(this work) is the expression of a fantasy of perfection.... a fantasy of perfect order, perfect love, perfect grace and perfect art."
