Art by D. Snowden

South Dakota artist Dorothy Snowden creates colorful images, in oils and pastels, which convey her close connection to a rural lifestyle and passion for horses.

Her western landscapes are impressionistic, with broad brushstrokes of generously applied material, yielding texture to the canvas surface. Her pastels are equally vibrant, executed in a looseness of line unburdened with detail.

When portraying the equine form, she strives to capture their grace and movement in an interpretive style all her own, while maintaining a physical correctness horsemen appreciate. Horse racing scenes are a favored subject, reflecting her love of Thoroughbreds. The colorful silks of the jockeys and their steeds racing in full flight lend themselves well to her artistic vision.

Her images have appeared in numerous publications, public collections and exhibitions. She is a Founding Member of Artists of the Black Hills and participates annually in several regional exhibitions. Her work is also available in
Black Hills area galleries.
