Olga Snyder Awarded Best Emerging Artist Award
ORLANDO, FL (January 20, 2013) Color, creativity, and imagination brought a Coudersport, Pa., woman the coveted Best Emerging Artist Award at the annual American Craft Retailers Expo in Orlando, Florida. Olga Snyder introduced her newest line of artwork, known as “Art Treats,” consisting of an imaginative collection of postcards, magnets, bookmarks, pins, fiber art, and jewelry that bring colorful splashes to everyday life.
“The most popular response to my artwork from both show attendees and fellow artists was that my images made them feel happy,” Snyder said in accepting the award. “That’s exactly what I intend my art to do to people.”
Snyder has been a full-time artist in Coudersport for the last 13 years and, along with her husband John, owns and operates Olga Gallery, Café, & Bistro in the center of downtown Coudersport. Their multi-faceted business has brought an element of color and vibrancy to the busiest intersection in the county seat. At the same time, Snyder has begun selling her unique and self-styled artwork to galleries and boutiques across the country.
