Tricia Coyle - Abstract Photography
Tricia graduated from college with a degree in cytology and worked in the laboratory for 14 years.
With the use of a microscope, she analyzed and diagnosed specimens for diseases and infections. She left the cytology field in 2013, and focused on her passion for art. Her abstract photographs are expressed with a narrative element relatable to the cytology field. She doesn't see things for what they are, more for what they could be.
Greg Matchick - Travel Photography
“The Places We’ll Go” features a collection of fine art prints by local
photographer Greg Matchick, representing 25 years of his travels through Europe.
Greg’s hand varnished photographs are intimate images which capture the
essence of Europe.
Ruth and Herndon Snider - Watercolor
Ruth Snider has enjoyed her artistic pursuits for all of her life. Herndon, however, has only developed his interest in art in recent years after previously thinking that art for him was an impossible endeavor. A venture by the couple into the artistic world of the restoration of antique carousel horses led Herndon into carving and painting of the figures and from there into primarily watercolor painting. Their travels both in the United States and in Europe, primarily into Italy, have been the inspiration of much of their art. Watercolor, with its relative ease of transporting the materials, led to it becoming their primary pursuit. Ruth has, additionally , done work over the years in acrylic painting, painted furniture, and mural production. She has produced commissioned murals, paintings and painted furniture locally and has a commissioned mural in Tuscany, Italy. The couple have most recently shown their work at various venues in Southwest Missouri and Southeast Kansas but also have begun to display works displayed in the St Louis area. This is their first showing in the Green Door Gallery.
