Jerrie Powell, Artist
October 26 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
The exhibition, Jerrie Powell, Artist, opens in the Ross Gallery at Arts for Rural Texas in Fayetteville, TX. on October 26th from 5 PM – 7 PM.
The paintings of Jerrie Powell tell a story of discoveries and simple adventures. In this busy, work-a-day world, Powell reaches back into history and indulges in the theme of genre paintings. Here she takes the most simple of items and caresses them with brushwork and color that offers the viewer a new vision of the most common object. Where her color play is modern, her desire to romanticized the normal is classic in approach.
Powell says, “My goal as an artist is to create beauty. I love the process of turning time into art.” She says she was too practical to major in art, she opted for a degree in Business Administration. In 1997, her husband’s career took them to Belgium for five years where she again pursued her interest in drawing and painting.
The exhibition of works is open to the public, Tuesdays – Saturdays through December 7th.
