Snyderman-Works Galleries

The Works Gallery was founded by Ruth Snyderman in 1965. It is one of the oldest exhibiting galleries in the field of contemporary studio crafts, representing selected artists working in figurative, narrative and functional ceramics, glass, jewelry, fiber and wood. Rick Snyderman joined her in the operation of the gallery in 1972.

In 1983, the Snydermans co-founded a second operation, Snyderman Gallery, to create a specifically focused exhibition space for the rapidly developing areas of studio furniture and sculptural glass, while Works Gallery concentrated on artists in ceramics, jewelry and fiber.

During that period, both became leading national galleries in those fields, mounting landmark exhibitions: glass designed by Ettore Sottsass's Memphis Group; one of the first exhibits of architect Robert Venturi's post-modern chair & table designs for Knoll; a landmark exhibit: Masters of 20th Century Studio Furniture, ranging from Wharton Esherick to Wendell Castle; early exhibits of work by Dale Chihuly, William Morris, Harvey Littleton, Tom Patti, Toots Zynsky, Richard Marquis, and many other pioneers ...

Cynthia Schira world renowned Fiber Artist:

I have become fascinated by the visual notational methods or systems specific to different professions . The staff of written music; the graph markings of the weaver; the layout of an architect; the equations of a mathematician - all are meaningful to the practitioners within the particular field but often are an indecipherable code to others. I am also intrigued by how these marks change and evolve over time, so although their usage remains the same, their appearance historically differs. In combining and juxtaposing parts of these various systems, new patterns and forms develop provoking in my mind new allusions to follow. The complexity of the graphic relationships, the allusions along with the morphing of the marks by their translation into woven structures continue to involve me.
