College art professor's work to be featured in Connecticut show

Marietta College's Jolene Powell, an assistant professor of art, is one of three featured artists at the Washington Art Association in Washington Depot, Conn., during the month of March.

The exhibition opens with a reception from 3-5 p.m. on Saturday, March 4, and will continue until March 26.

Powell, who joined Marietta College in the fall of 2002, will be exhibiting some of her oil on canvas work. The other featured artists are Sam Thurston and Marjorie Kramer.

The Washington Art Association, a not-for-profit organization run by volunteers, was established in 1952 by a group of local artists seeking ways to better connect with fellow artists in the community.

Artists apply for exhibitions several times a year. The WAA selection committee is made up of nationally known artists, including Michael Chelminski and Barbara Grossman. The committee invites about 20 percent of the applicants to exhibit in the gallery space.
