The works of UC Davis professor emeritus Dan Snyder will be on display from May 10 to July 9 at the Shimo Center for the Arts, 2117 28th St. in Sacramento.

The gallery wanted to showcase Snyder’s work on the 10th anniversary of his death, according to a news release. There is a reception — free and open to the public — from 6 to 9 p.m. Saturday, May 10. The exhibit may be seen from 1 to 5 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday or by appointment. For more information, call 916-706-1162.
Snyder attended Yale Art School and was awarded two Fulbright scholarships to France. He taught at Columbia University and Carnegie Mellon University. He also was a set designer for the renowned Berliner Ensemble, the London Festival Ballet, Western Theater Ballet and Marquis de Cuevas Ballet.
While living in London, he received an offer to teach at UCD.
In his autobiographical notes Snyder writes, “found out that (William T.) Wiley, (Robert) Arneson and (Wayne) Thiebaud teach there in the art department — take the position!”
After moving to Davis, Snyder contributed set designs for a number of UCD productions and mounted a popular series, “Out Our Way,” with Wiley. Snyder also initiated and promoted the Granada Artist-in-Residence Program in the department of theater and dance.
In this retrospective show, visitors will see Snyder’s intriguing images of contemporary life “ vividly portrayed with a wry sense of humor.” As Snyder wrote in 1978: “If you can make something original and nifty you are well on your way — to something.”
