Artist Jolene Powell: The Power of Travel, Investigating the Landscape, Teaching & Running a Gallery
Updated: Jan 10
Jolene Powell is a McCoy Professor of Art and Director of Gallery 310 at Marietta College. Although she lives in the Midwest, she has spent several summers painting the coast of Maine; her fog-saturated residency at the Heliker-LaHotan Foundation generated much of her recent visual inspiration.
I was so excited to visit Jolene's studio to record this episode! It was great to see her gorgeous work in person, dive into how she creates her pieces and also hear about what has impacted her as an artist. Jolene is funny, thoughtful and extremely supportive of students.
Jolene received her MFA from Boston University in 2001, and has an extensive exhibition record which includes; 2010 10th Annual American Landscapes, Maryland Federation of Art; Summer Exhibition, Courthouse Gallery, Ellsworth Maine; Monotype Guild of New England, National Show 2010, Fitchburg Art Museum, Fitchburg, Massachusetts; Simplicity and Suspense, at the Narthex Gallery, New York City, Maine As Muse, at Lohin Geduld Gallery, New York City. And in 2015, Jolene Powell: Zephyr Memories, at ENO Gallery, Hillsborough, North Carolina. Prof. Powell spent her fall 2016 sabbatical at the Nes International Artist Residency in Iceland.
