Lake Powell – Through The Canal #3 by Barbara Kemp Cowlin

I currently live in Oracle, Arizona where I work on my art full-time in a beautiful studio adjacent to my home.
I love to paint. I enjoy printmaking and bookmaking as well. I am working on two series of paintings– one is of overlooked indoor and outdoor details and the other is of water reflections. My work has ranged from landscape to figurative.
I have taught art at all levels from first grade through college. Other experiences include working as a graphic designer, arts administrator and as a full time artist. I have a BFA in Printmaking and a Masters degree in Community College Education with a major in Printmaking. Currently, I offer workshops around Arizona and in my studio.
My work has been included in the City of Phoenix Arts Collection, the University of Arizona Special Collections, Providence Medical Center in Everett, Washington and Kenyon College in Gambier, Ohio, First Bancorp Headquarters in Troy, N.C., Baylor University Medical Center as well as the Art in Embassies program at the U. S. Embassy in Bolivia. I’ve had solo shows at the Agua Caliente Ranch Park Gallery in Tucson, Arizona, Rancho Linda Vista Gallery, Oracle, Arizona, Willo North Gallery in Phoenix, and the @ Central Gallery, Burton Barr Central Library, Phoenix. Other  two-person and group shows include the Sky Harbor Airport in Phoenix, Tucson International Airport, the Arizona Gallery at the University of Arizona, Casa Grande Art Museum, and numerous other exhibitions throughout the United States.

 An Artist Reception will be held Friday May 6, 2016 from 5:00  – 7:00 p.m.

Powell Museum & Visitor Center, Page, AZ

Refreshments will be served plus it will be
our first Art Walk of the season, so please join us!! 



“Where Water Meets Sand”

A point-and-shoot New England transplant with a passion for discovering unique natural patterns, Judy fell deeply in love with the wildly diverse and fascinating geology spread across the Colorado Plateau.

Speaking deeply to her soul, Lake Powell is at the top of the list because of its continuously changing, magical draw – some of which is part of this exhibit.

“Where Water Meets Sand” is strong evidence that the lake itself is one talented artist, manipulating sand into some rather incredible mini ‘lakescapes.’ These patterns were captured at water’s edge or slightly above.

Judy thoroughly enjoys not only finding these beautiful artful patterns, but being able to share her discoveries as well.

Please contact Judy at lakeviewfinder@aol.com or 408-402-1704

February 2016 Artist of the Month – Ron Larson

Ron Larson

“Vistas & Visions of the Colorado Plateau” by Artist Ron Larson


“Vistas & Visions of the Colorado Plateau” – a new and evolving collection of paintings by artist Ron Larson has been extended through June 30, 2016 and 15+ new paintings have been delivered for display! In celebration of the exhibit extension and the new works, Ron is also our featured Artist of the Month for February with a reception to be held on Friday, February 5, 2016 at the Powell Museum.

The last 12 months have been amazing. The Exhibit opened almost exactly a year ago, and Ron has been returning and introducing new paintings from new locations – usually two or three at a time throughout the year. The Colorado Plateau is a huge area, 130,000 square miles in four states, and Ron has made it his mission to find those unique places of stark and unusual beauty and translate them to canvas. To have painted so many additional paintings and deliver them all in one visit has been a monumental task, and the museum felt it was worthy of a celebration.

Artist Ron Larson preserves the spirit of the wide open spaces, towering rock formations, meandering watercourses, and transitory moments of life on the Colorado Plateau in his watercolor and oil paintings. He often paints on-site surrounded by the inspiring landscape in many parks and monuments. Ron’s newest collection of paintings depict scenes from well-known places such as Lake Powell and Glen Canyon National Recreation Area, Rainbow Bridge National Monument, Zion National Park, Bryce Canyon National Park, Monument Valley Tribal Park, Canyonlands National Park, Capitol Reef National Park, and Grand Canyon National Park, along with lesser known, but equally stunning, parts of the Colorado Plateau.

Growing up and living in Utah, Ron spent almost 60 years of life searching for places of splendor and serenity which speak to him, bringing him peace and contentment. Ron’s paintings bring expressions of the Colorado Plateau’s marvels through visual vignettes of it’s space. Sometimes he uses the bold colors of oil, and sometimes the softer feel that watercolor offers, but always finds contrasts, where there are deep, dark shadows and striking reflections of light.

Inducted into the National Watercolor Society as a Signature Member in 2007, Ron is also a member of the Oil Painters of America, the Outdoor Painter’s Society, and the National Impressionistic Society. His paintings grace the walls of private, corporate, and museum collections from all over the world, and three of his paintings that have been in the Exhibit have won awards from national art shows in the last year.

Ron has recently participated in Glen Canyon National Recreation Area’s Artist in Residence program, the Scottsdale Celebration of Fine Art in Arizona, the Grand Canyon and Zion National Park Plein Air Invitationals, and two Utah universities have selected his art as part of their public art calls. Ron will also be a guest speaker in the Glen Canyon Lecture Series in May. Admission is free. The Glen Canyon Lecture Series is sponsored by the Page Public Library, the Glen Canyon Natural History Association, and Powell Museum.



"Morning Light"

“Morning Light”

The public is invited to an artist’s reception on Friday, February 5, from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m., at the Powell Museum – 6 N. Lake Powell Boulevard, Page, AZ. Refreshments will be served and, of course, Ron will be on hand to introduce his latest art. The looseleaf “in progress” version of the book he is writing of his odyssey and experiences will be on hand as well.
