Artist Spotlight | Bob Schneider

Anyone who’s been to Austin since 1999 has likely stumbled into the musical graces of Bob Schneider.

It’s not hard to find yourself in his presence — he seems to be everywhere. The musician began his solo career nearly 16 years ago, and has since released several albums, started his own label, and toured coast to coast, all while keeping his long-standing Monday night gig at the Saxon Pub. And while you may be well versed with his music, you might not be as familiar with his other artistic traits. Schneider reminded us of his talent as a visual artist last month at PrintAustin, where he participated as a panelist and displayed many of his original works. Now, a selection of over 25 etchings and mixed media collages are available for purchase at Flatbed Press. No one is too surprised by his presence in the gallery though, considering Schneider studied art briefly at the University of Texas at El Paso before advancing his career as a musician. Although he’s been busy over the years launching a solo career and playing with a number of side projects such as The Scabs, The Moonlight Orchestra, and The Bluegrass Massacre, he never lost touch with the canvas. His etchings, which have been described as stream of consciousness style, were produced during a period of time spanning 2000-2008. More recently, Schneider has focused his visual artistic abilities to mixed media collages, a colorful yet haunting series that brings dozens of smaller, evocative images into one larger picture.
