In "A Pearl, a Fossil, or a Scar," her latest show at Channel to Channel, Snodgrass presents a series of "paper-rubbing drawings" - monochromatic, illusive works that possess both the solidity of stone and the softness of textile.

    Actors Bridge teams up with Belmont for gender-bending adventure 'Men on Boats'

First premiering in 2015, "Men on Boats" reimagines the story of Captain John Wesley Powell and his 1869 expedition to chart the course of the Green and Colorado Rivers through the Grand Canyon.
