Gary Snyder became director of Princeton Gallery of Fine Art and relocated to 588 Broadway, NY, changing the name to Snyder Gallery. Arline and Barry Snyder opened "Princeton Gallery of Fine Art in Princeton, NJ, in 1970. Situated close to Bucks County and the rich artistic heritage of the region, the shape of their inventory soon moved toward modernism. In 1986 the gallery held a memorial exhibition for Werner Drewes. Drewes was a founding member of the American Abstract Artists group, and the only member who studied at the Bauhaus school in Germany. Works of Werner Drewes graced the walls of Princeton Gallery as did works by Joseph Stella, Ethel Magafan, Wolf Kahn, Clarence Carter, and Bucks County Modernist Louis Stone, (Lots 65 – 79).
