Eleanor Powell, CCAS BA ’44, was profiled by examiner.com in the article “Artist Eleanor Powell: A One-In-A-Billion Mind.” The piece was published in October 2013.
Powell, who is in her nineties, describes her work as “hard-edged geometric paintings in acrlyics, most of which appear to be three dimensional.”
A graduate of both GW and Old Dominion University/Norfolk State University, Powell didn’t take up painting full time until the youngest of 11 children were in high school, reports examainer.com
Powell’s work has been featured in numerous juried shows and is in public and private collections throughout the country. Her grandaughter says the work is a “visually amazing blend of something one would see in a kaleidoscope or in an MC EScher book.”
