SNYDER ART: Carlsbad Village Art Surf

Paintings hang on dining room walls and decorate prestigious museums. Sculptures scatter gardens with twisting figures and films unwrap on televisions.

Materials are then applied in […]

Have you seen me? 4.24.09

You might see me as dull, but a weathered personality hints at a colorful background. Dust fills my deep crevices and I am […]

Coachella Art and Music Festival 2009

The sun pinched and dust scratched as we sat in the middle of a swarming parking lot. Shade was as rare as a hobo’s hot meal and a cool drink soon became flat. Each minute brought more cars; our camp became engulfed by hot engines and smelly tires. Distant tunes echoed off surrounding mountains and […]

Carlsbad Village Crawling

Our village radiates with beauty. It swells with interesting sites and buzzes like a productive beehive. Flowers blossom with colors as alive as a glowing flower field and juxtapositions dance like an awkward couple destined for happiness. Each site provokes a thought, each encounter an emotion and each conversation a friendship. A walk down Grand […]

Carlsbad 5000: our eyes to yours

The village awoke early as feeble fences stretched under shady trees, over mellow hills and along our wind blown ocean. Crowds rubbed sleep from their eyes and wandered towards the distant vibrations of a rambling microphone. The sun watched as coffee brewed and the day’s cloud was no more than a tumbling puff of dust […]
