The works of Nancy Powhida will be displayed in an exhibition entitled, “Life Stories: Works of Nancy Powhida” at the Lycoming College Art Gallery in downtown Williamsport beginning Friday, Sept. 22, with a gallery talk at 5:30 p.m. The show, which is free and open to the public, will run through Friday, Oct. 20.
Powhida is a painter, sculptor, and printmaker, who has been featured in both solo and group exhibitions throughout the region. Her works are displayed in public, corporate, and private collections, and she has received several awards recognizing her work.
She was born in 1942 in Glens Falls, N.Y., and grew up in the nearby village of Hudson Falls. She worked for thirty-one years as a vocational rehabilitation counselor. Upon “discovering” that she was an artist at forty years of age she went on to study art at Skidmore College, Vermont College of Norwich University, and the University at Albany where she earned degrees in painting and sculpture. Over the past forty years she has created significant bodies of work in drawing, painting, sculpture, and printmaking. More information can be found at www.nancypowhida.com.
