Elizabeth Powell

(Vermont) Artist-in-Residence May - June Residency Year: 2023


Elizabeth Powell is a painter and printmaker in Burlington, Vermont.

She earned her MA and MFA in Printmaking and Painting from the University of Iowa in 2020 and a BA in Economics and Fine Arts from the University of Vermont in 2016. She has a keen interest in color theory, patterning, and the morphology of shapes as psychological representations of femininity.

Having extensively studied gender inequality in her economic studies, Powell explores the way the same sociological differences that lead to a systemic economic imbalance between men and women, present themselves in visual taste for form, pattern, and color.
Since finishing her MFA, Powell has had solo shows in Iowa and upstate New York and is looking forward to her 2023 solo exhibition with Kishka Gallery in White River Junction, Vermont.

Powell has attended residencies with BreckCreate in Breckenridge, Colorado; InCahoots in Petaluma, California; and the Helene Wurlitzer Foundation in Taos, New Mexico.
