Joseph Harrison Snyder
Joseph Harrison Snyder is a full time artist, selling paintings and prints every Saturday and Sunday from 8am to 4pm. On weekends, he is usually found in a tent opposite to Tunnicliff’s Tavern on Seventh Street.
Joseph lives and works just a few blocks away. The District of Columbia is his adopted home and the subject of much of his work. As predictable as it may sound to say, he really loves this city. Loves it for its classical beauty and its unparalleled oddity, for its immense history and bewilderingly rapid changes, for its fascinating collection of transient people and its proudly ensconced locals. He thinks one of the highest callings of an artist is to document the community they are part of. He makes his stand here.
Joseph does social and political commentary as well as painting the physical city. If he had to say, he would say his most admired artist is Honore Daumier. That is all he has to say. Its probably better for artist not to write too much.
