The Scarab Club invites submissions for its annual Gilda Snowden Memorial Exhibition. It is an unthemed exhibition, open to all artists 18 years or older. 

The purpose of the Gilda Snowden Memorial Exhibition is to recognize the diversity and achievement of artists whose work shows creativity of concept, excellence of design and expertise of media; to display these works to regional audiences and to be an educational opportunity for students.

His drawings and paintings have been included in solo and group exhibitions throughout the United States and abroad. Sawyer holds a BFA in drawing and painting from Eastern Michigan University and an MFA in painting from the New York Academy of Art: Graduate School of Figurative Art.
