The Oak Lawn Library will open a unique exhibition featuring East Dallas artist Guinn Powell on September 1, on view until September 27, 2018.
“Deep Roots” contains 17 original pieces by Powell that delve into the history and culture of his upbringing, which influenced the artist in a profound way. Each work transports the viewer back in time with scenes of everyday rural life.
“This collection is a conversation between the medium and the subject matter,” Powell says. “The series is an eclectic mix of landscapes, seascapes and other reflections of my heritage growing up in East Texas.”
MEET THE ARTIST: Powell will be at the exhibition for a reception with visitors from 2 to 4 p.m. on Saturday, September 1, at the Oak Lawn Library. The public is invited to attend the event and exhibit for free.
Powell, a graduate of Southern Methodist University, is a Dallas-based artist whose paintings explore subjects from a brave and candid perspective. The artist is thrilled to be showcasing his art within the Dallas community. His work has been featured at the Bath House Cultural Center (Dallas), The State Fair of Texas and The Lakewood Library, which features works of noteworthy and upcoming artists. Powell’s work has been frequently awarded and recognized, most recently at the 2018 Lakewood Library Annual Exhibition, and he is available for commissioned-art requests.

We love the above message prominently displayed at the top of the staircase at The Ebby House. And we couldn’t agree more!
The Ebby House is an innovative transitional community for young women who have aged out of foster care located at Juliette Fowler Communities in Dallas’ Lakewood neighborhood (which we also love!) The Ebby House serves young women ages 18-24 as they make the transition from foster care to living independently.
Every year, about 1,500 young Texans age out of the foster care system. Before the age of 21, many of them face severe outcomes due to lack of family and adult connections. The Ebby House seeks to reverse that trend by offering young women a home to live in and mentors to love them while they learn to become self-reliant, entrepreneurial — volunteers and mentors themselves — reflecting the values and life of our company’s founder, Ebby Halliday.
