Karen Snouffer's art processes concentrate on mixed-media and installation, exploring themes of identity, history and place, and how these topics intersect in studio practices.  In addition to her individual work, she has collaborated with poets, dancers, sculptors and new media artists. Due to her past experience with improvistational dance, movement--both visual and psychological--continues to infuse her work. She has exhibited nationally at Art Center South Florida, Miami; The Work Space, New York; Cleveland Center for Contemporary Art; Hallwalls, Buffalo; Weston Art Gallery, Cincinnati; Hammond-Harkins Gallery, Columbus, OH; Evansville Art Museum, Evansville, IN; Poor Dog Space, Los Angeles; Soo Visual Arts Center, Minneapolis; and internationally at La Médiathèque, Epernay, France; and Gallerie Cardo, Reims, France.  She is a former fellow of the Fine Arts Work Center, Provincetown, and a past Artist-in-Residence at Headlands Center for the Arts, Sausalito.  Snouffer is a recipient of six fellowships from the Ohio Arts Council; a Great Lakes College Association New Directions Initiative; numerous Kenyon College faculty development grants; and a McGregor Foundation Global Exchange Grant, supporting travel and research in rural France. Her work has been published in three books: The Next Hedgerow; Love Life; Love Life: Memory and Nature at Play; and Somatic Principles and Dance.  

She received her BS in Education and MFA from The Ohio State University.  She teaches painting, drawing, and multi-media classes at Kenyon College with a studio and residence in Gambier, Ohio.
