"Jill Powers achieves the mysticism of the orient with handmade paper that she casts into starkly simple forms. The serene oblong shape of Ms. Powers's "Reverence" has the essence of an Oriental reliquary. A single dried okra pod hangs down in front like a ceremonial vessel."
-Review from the Sunday New York Times - July 15, 1990

KOZO BARK FIBER is the main art material that I use. I have developed many innovative techniques over the last twelve years in working with Kozo- an intriguing and unusual bark fiber. It is a very freeing art medium with many possibilities for exploration. It is a wonderful collage medium, full of texture and visual interest. You can create kozo pieces or shapes that make a beautiful layer in an encaustic painting. Mixed media paintings, prints, or constructions offer more connections for kozo. Explore these in this in-depth workshop, where you will learn to prepare the bark, understand its history and use in making "rice paper", and make images or abstract shapes that you can use in your art.
This exhibition features Jill's piece called Essential Waters, from a new series of art pieces about water. The art in the exhibition is about water as a force of change, growth or destruction, and features installation and interactive pieces.
Feb 5 - March 2 Firehouse Art Center 667 Fourth Ave Longmont, CO
