Join Julia Powell (Landscape Artist) for conversation about her artistic process - looking at specific paintings together -- and how her collectors have been purchasing her art to reduce stress during the pandemic.
About the Speaker
Julia S. Powell is based in Cambridge, MA, apart from one month of each year which she spends in Maine. Powell graduated with a BA with Distinction from Yale University. She was recently chosen as the VIP print artist for the Boston Museum of Fine Arts 2017 Summer Gala and was featured in the July 2017 issue of Architectural Digest. Her paintings can be found in many private collections across the U.S., Canada, Europe, and South America, including the private residence of Mindy Kaling.
Julia S. Powell’s oil paintings, teeming with lively brushstrokes and mottled with vibrant color, depict scenes that can’t be found anywhere on Earth but carry the essence of the natural world within them. Powell lives in Maine for one month every year, enveloped in New England’s rich wilderness. She passes her time exploring, taking pictures, and absorbing the imagery around her. The elements which are essential to her work are also essential to the Northeastern landscape: wood and water. Powell’s work seeks to highlight environmental issues without overly politicizing the subject. From her perspective, among modern world conflicts, environmental concerns take a backseat in our everyday attention. Meanwhile, the planet is melting.
