About the Artist

Carl Snyder moved to Wolfville from the Toronto area in 2011. He had worked for many years as a freelance commercial/illustrative photographer in large and small studios doing product, food, and editorial photography.


As he approached retirement, he became involved with an artists’ co-op in Newmarket for several years and found the co-op experience to be the best way to meet other artists and promote/advocate the local gallery concept. This led him to ViewPoint Gallery in 2013 and Tides Gallery in 2023.

Artist Statement

Large scale panoramas are a favorite of mine. I’m drawn to their detailed, horizontal narrative. The scale demands, I hope, a longer look, while the detail presents an awareness of what might otherwise go unnoticed. The overall effect is to help “fix the image in memory” in the sense meant by American artist Vija Celmins.
