Powsey is a watercolour painter, drawer and fine art intaglio printmaker.

Powsey also worked in animated film and television from 1985 to 2016 with screen credits as an art director and background artist.

The show opens Saturday, March 26 to April 23. Music for the opening will be provided by Backyard Swing.
