Alumni Reception with McCoy Professor of Art Jolene Powell
SATURDAY, JANUARY 26, 2019: 6:00 P.M. - 8:00 P.M.
Brandt-Roberts Galleries, 642 N. High St., Columbus OH; 614.223.1655
(Visit http://brandtrobertsgalleries.com/parking/ for parking information)
The Pioneer community (alumni, faculty, staff, students, parents and guests) is invited to join McCoy Professor of Art and Director of Gallery 310 Jolene Powell and some of our talented students at this gallery, specializing in contemporary and post-war art. Powell writes:
"Each time I look at one of my paintings I remember the crags of Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio; Coopers Rock, WV; Great Cranberry Island, ME, and/or the coast of Iceland; however, I have a love-hate relationship with the memory. When painting in my Ohio studio, I remember the ever-changing weather in the landscapes I have experienced over the last twenty years. Each time I recollect, a piece of the experience is lost, becoming more abstract. The longer I am away, the more immaterial my hand becomes, focusing more on nuance and experience rather than the fevered documentation that occurs when working in life. The dichotomy of working from and in the absence of my subject is an integral balance of perception and invention that serves the symphony of time, space, and light I convey. Each time I remember rocks and cliffs, I change, because the experience of recollection is never in the same place or with the same thoughts. I intend for a viewer to also remember a landscape, sentiment, or experience upon seeing my work."
Cost is $15 per person which includes appetizers and one drink ticket. Register by January 11 to receive an extra drink ticket and a chance to win Marietta memorabilia.
