Wendi Schneider is a Denver-based visual artist illuminating impressions of grace with photography and precious metals to preserve vanishing beauty in our vulnerable environment.
Inspired by a background in painting, art history and the lush beauty of Memphis and New Orleans, she turned to photography in the early ‘80s and subsequently moved to New York, where she photographed for advertising, book covers and Victoria magazine in addition to her fine art work.
Returning to fine art photography, she soon began her ongoing series “States of Grace”, engaging digital imaging to capture, layer and print her images, then applying gold or silver on verso to infuse the artist's hand and suffuse her treasured subjects with the spirituality and sanctity of the precious metals.
Schneider’s work has been exhibited, awarded, and published internationally and is held in permanent collections at the New Orleans Museum of Art, the Memphis Brooks Museum, the Center for Creative Photography, Auburn University Library, the Try-Me Collection, and numerous private collections.
She is represented by A Gallery For Fine Photography in New Orleans, Catherine Couturier Gallery in Houston, and Galeria Photographic in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico and sits on the executive board of the Colorado Photographic Arts Center.
