Jin and John Powell
In the Gallery Dec 8-Jan 22
Trained figurative artist Jin Powell's work integrates transitional techniques with boundless modern thought in a mixed-media format. Each work projects the true feminine experience with elegance, a beauty that seems illusory, a surreal emotion. Each work is imbued with a sense of movement, capturing the heart with a smile. Sculptor John Powell's art is a mirror of his thoughts - a reflection and outward manifestation of my physical and psychological journey. "Whether I'm working with wood, metals, or stone, and regardless of the nature of the experience, I end with something of beauty that captures a part of my being – my unpredictable life."
Opening Reception Feb 7 from 1–3pm
In the Gallery Feb 7–28

A nonprofit organization of visual artists whose purpose is to aid its member artists in their professional growth and in the development of their artistic skills by providing exhibitions, workshops, demonstrations, and other continuing education opportunities. In addition, the League works to enrich the community by presenting original fine art in public exhibits, participating in other community art activities and supporting art education in the schools. Organized on August 16, 1976, as the Germantown Art League, the group was chartered on June 22, 1977, as a nonprofit Tennessee corporation. In May 1988, the organization’s name was changed to Memphis/Germantown Art League in recognition of the wider geographical distribution of its members. Today the organization includes substantial membership from locations throughout the mid-south area and surrounding states. The League depends on all its members as volunteers to serve on its Board of Directors and committees and to assist in the work of the organization.
