JB Snyder presents his first gallery show since 2010.

"Closure: Paintings From JB Snyder"

J.B. Snyder, a local artist known for making a splash by adding color to deserted landscapes, is trying something new-ish: an art show within four walls, not on them.

His first solo show since 2010's "Fragments of Happiness" at The Quincy, "Closure" includes approximately 25 new pieces. The Hive art gallery on Calle 16 will host the exhibition.

The prominent Valley muralist and owner of Fifth Street Paint Supply has found a place in the public eye thanks to large-scale pieces on buildings and walls throughout downtown Phoenix. This collection, all of which is available for purchase, remains true to his artistic style of colorful, geometric painting.

"It's similar but with more depth and life," Snyder says. "Just less flat."

"Closure" opens during Third Friday from 7 to 10 p.m. on Friday, March 21, at The Hive, 2222 North Sixteenth Street. Admission is free. Visit www.thehivephoenix.com or call 602-254-1641 for details. -- Janessa Hilliard
