Arlys Clark and Rosemary Powelson: Parallel Journeys

Exhibition Dates:

August 8-31, 2022


August 4, 2022 5-6:30 p.m.

Twenty five years later, two local artists, Arlys Clark and Rosemary Powelson, return with a second iteration of Parallel Journeys, an exhibit that first showed at Lower Columbia College in 1997. 

In this show, Arlys Clark reminisces on adventures from her youth through a sequence of paintings featuring her dear friend and travel companion, Jeanie Magdlin. While Rosemary Powelson, a veteran painter and printmaker, opens a new chapter of her life with an installation of large scale mixed media diary pages and 3-dimensional vessels that reference light and nature with clay, glaze and fire.

All proceeds from the exhibit will go to support the Longview Library Foundation.

About the Forsberg Art Gallery

Lower Columbia College's art gallery located in the Rose Center for the Arts features twenty foot high walls with ample space and complete flexibility for the display of art. The second level of the gallery is more intimate in nature and displays special items and the college's permanent collection, much of which has been donated. Natural light from a slot skylight gently illuminates the room to enhance the overall experience in the gallery.
