About the Artists:

Linda Snouffer 

Botanical Printmaker

A jurist observed that he had never seen work quite like Linda Snouffer’s botanical prints, remarking that she had developed unique printmaking techniques unlike any he had seen in his 35+ year career.   Using grass and leaf prints, she creates all plant images in her intricate, multifaceted landscapes.

Her studio goal is to replicate the movement, colors & lighting of prairies, wetlands, & forests, using grass and leaf prints. With dozens of native and cultivar grasses and sizes ranging from a few inches to many feet tall, grasses are used regularly in her work.  Striking structural variations in stalks, blades and seed tassels print with remarkable artistic versatility; and are used to meadows, reeds, and cattails.  Prints of yarrow leaves and fern tips become forests.

Snouffer’s Botanical Printmaking work has been recognized with numerous merits and honors.  She was awarded a 2019 residency with the Science Museum of Minnesota and fulfilled commission work for the Women's Foundation of Minnesota, Ramsey County Library, and others. She served on several Arts Grant Jury Panels, has a decade of art exhibit installation experience in almost a dozen Minnesota galleries, and held essential administration and program planning roles in Metro arts organizations.

Ivy Mattson

Functional Ceramicist

Ivy Mattson is a ceramicist based in Minneapolis, MN. Her wheel thrown and altered work is highly decorated, projecting joy, wonder, and curiosity–values that are echoed in her teaching practice. Mattson first began working with clay while earning her BA in Art Education at Concordia College in Moorhead, MN. She worked as a ceramic studio artist at the Plains Art Museum in Fargo, ND, while teaching art in Moorhead before moving to Minneapolis. She completed the MN New Institute for Ceramic Education Program in 2023 at Northern Clay Center, while continuing to teach and make art in the inspiring community of the Twin Cities. Through reflections of nostalgic memory, Mattson experiences a cathartic process in making each piece while she hopes to help those who experience her work by recapturing and revitalizing the present moment in light of the past.
