Alumna to exhibit in Gallery 310 this fall with ‘Making Flippy Floppy’


The Marietta College Department of Art is pleased to present the second exhibition to be held in Gallery 310, “Making Flippy Floppy,” a solo exhibition by NYC artist and 2001 Art Department alumnae, Jamie Powell ’01.

Her work is rooted in the rich American history of abstract painting with a contemporary sensibility. She has exhibited extensively in the U.S., including FLUXspace in Philadelphia, The National Arts Club in New York City, Parallel Art Space in Queens and Soil Art Gallery in Seattle.

She discribes her work as culled from popular culture, cartoons and nightmares where she combines color and imagery to form a personal system of ambitious recongnition and recollection. She combines acts of painting on and cutting directly into the canvas; simultaneously creating an absence and presence of image.

“Making Flippy Floppy,” opens Oct. 11, with a reception for the artist from 5-7 p.m. The show will be held in Gallery 310, located on the third floor of the Hermann Fine Arts building on the campus of Marietta College. The exhibition is free and open to the public and is on view through Dec. 6.
