About Sally Snider Studio
Sally's interest in art began during high school where she was selected to attend Saturday drawing classes at The Cleveland Institute of Art. In 1968 she received a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree from Bowling Green State University in Northern Ohio. While in college, she held a student art assistantship position and was inducted into the Delta Phi Delta art honorary society.

Free-lance art projects kept Sally involved in the arts while raising two children and she resumed watercolor painting in 1984. Throughout the years she has studied with nationally known artists and has participated in numerous watercolor workshops.

Her detailed and realistic painting style has received widespread recognition including winning many "Best of Show" awards and the coveted Grumbacher Gold Medal. Sally exhibited fifteen consecutive years at The Crosby Festival of Art, which is the oldest and most respected juried outdoor show in Ohio. Her work was juried into The Toledo Museum of Art "Area Artists Exhibition" five times where she received The Northwestern Ohio Watercolor Society Award. Several Ohio corporations have included her paintings in their permanent collections.

Sally spent much of her career working on commisioned paintings of Toledo, Ohio area landmarks such as courthouses, businesses, restaurants and homes. Before moving to Colorado in 2000 she owned a very popular business selling prints and notecards featuring those local sights. From 1999 to 2001, The Toledo Zoo commissioned her to paint eleven zoo scenes, which were reproduced into notecards for the zoo gift shop.

Sally is a signature member of The Ohio Watercolor Society. Her paintings are best described as bold, colorful and nostalgic.
