ART HOUSE SPOTLIGHT
Beth Snyder, Art House Board Member
From a young age, Beth Snyder loved all things arts and crafts. As a high schooler in the mid nineties, her first business "Beth's Bauble and Beads" exhibited at the Fulton Art Fair at William Woods. Beth graduated from the University of Missouri, Columbia with a BFA in Fibers and Graphic Design. She has worked in television design and as an art director for magazines, but now owns and operates an illustration company. 1canoe2 creates midwestern-inspired illustrations and sells that artwork on paper goods from greeting cards to calendars, and home goods such as glassware and tea towels. You can find 1canoe2 products locally at Well Read Bookstore, and at more than 1400 locations worldwide. They have plans to open a retail location on Court Street for the holiday 2016 season, and are looking forward to having the entire company involved in the Brick District.
Beth is passionate about the mission of the ArtHouse and development of the local artist community. Her journalism and marketing background bring a business-minded point of view to the board. She has loved participating in Callaway Plein Air as an artist, and helping to grow this program for the future. ... See MoreSee Less
Art House is a vibrant and welcoming center founded on the belief that creative arts enrich lives. Through rotating exhibits, focused instruction and educational outreach, our mission is to create opportunities for the economic and artistic growth of established and emerging artists and to nurture the community’s appreciation and understanding of the arts.
The building at 531 Court Street in downtown Fulton, Missouri, is the home for the nonprofit Art House gallery as well as two other businesses: Court Street Custom Framing and Photography by Studio Seven. In just one year we have become the artistic hub in Fulton’s Brick District. We are a center for photography, framing, and the promotion and celebration of art for our community.
The Art House gallery is pursuing its 501c3 charitable organization status. The goals for this charitable enterprise include the promotion of the arts throughout our community through the display and sale of fine art, the support of local and regional artists, and the hosting of art education and other events. The Art House also serves as a centerpiece in the efforts of the Brick District to bring more events, tourists, and businesses to our historic downtown.
The gallery is open five days a week. We represent over 100 regional artists and feature paintings, ceramics, jewelry, textiles, hand-made greeting cards and much more. The Art House hosts classes teaching painting, ceramics, jewelry making, drawing, fiber arts, and other fine arts as well as other events. People of all skill levels can explore the fun of creating art with music and drinks during “Fun Art Fridays.” The gallery is also available as a venue for receptions, parties, and other events. Our two major regional events in the year are Callaway Plein Air, held the last weekend of May, and Autumn on the Bricks, held the second Saturday in October.
Exhibits are rotated multiple times per year. View our exhibit schedule for updated exhibit dates and details. Opening receptions are free and open to the public.
