The Fred Schnider Gallery of Art features exhibitions of artists throughout the Washington, DC metro area. We showcase a diverse range of media and styles, through a continual evolution of short-term exhibits.
Located in Arlington, Virginia’s Ballston neighborhood, the gallery is an intimate and open canvas to display an array of work. Established by the Fred Schnider Investment Group in May of 2018, our goal is to foster relationships between artists, art lovers and the community overall.
Photographs by Jason Horowitz
Exhibit Dates: November 2nd - December 21st
Re/Seen breathes new life into two time-honored fine art traditions – landscape and still life – by deconstructing and re-imagining the world through the use of two innovative photographic techniques.
In his landscape series, Horowitz uses the Photo Sphere/Street View app and his smartphone’s camera to create immersive 360° abstract views. Instead of depicting the world in a realistic documentary fashion, they playfully bend space and time to create beautiful images that are filled with a dizzying sense of mystery and wonder.
For the still life series, Horowitiz creates an alternate space that deconstructs and extends classic notions of still life art, representing it in a more abstract way. Plants and flowers are suspended in gelatin as if trapped in amber. Shot on film and printed without any digital manipulation, the subjects float in a dream-like space – a twilight zone that poses issues of reality and unreality, fact and fiction, representation and abstraction.
The relationships we build are as important as the places we create.

About Fred Schnider
Out of My Mind
David Carlson’s Fields and Transformation series is about process and the contemplative state that is developed from the artist and the viewer. The varying methods of scraping, brushing, and sanding are applied until the painting is completed.
-A Broader Sense of Place
By photographing, blending and stitching multiple exposures of a scene together into a seamless composition, an interesting passage of time and space is portrayed within the still image confine.
