We are deeply saddened by the death of Michael Snow. Over the years we have had the rare opportunity to exhibit and share his work and to get to know him – his witty sense of humour, generosity, integrity and commitment, never wavering from his path.

Michael Snow’s legacy is deep and influential. He was, and is, internationally renowned and respected as a groundbreaking artist working in a broad range of media including film, sculpture, installation, sound, photography, painting, drawing, book works and writings.

Above are two facing pages from Snow’s best known book Cover to Cover, (one of our personal favourites), produced in collaboration with the publishing program of the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design in 1975. The essay from the National Gallery of Canada illuminates the wonderful and impressive way that Snow could convey his world, – in a day in the life of the artist.

We will miss him.
