The Snowden Exhibition (formerly called the Silver Medal Exhibition), is an annual unthemed, all-media exhibition, open to all artists.
As an artist, teacher, mentor and friend, few people had as great an impact on our community as Gilda Snowden. After her death in 2014, the SC began presenting the top prize for the Silver Medal exhibition in her honor. Beginning in 2018 the exhibition is named for her.
The purpose of the Snowden Exhibition is to recognize the diversity and achievement of artists whose work shows creativity of concept, excellence of design and expertise of media; to display these works to regional audiences and to be an educational opportunity for students.
