Sky Power, born 1951 in Lubbock, Texas, has lived and worked in Provincetown, MA since 1976. While attending the Cornish School of Allied Arts in Seattle, WA in 1971, Power mentored with Dale Owen, who was then Dean. During 2010 through 2013, the artist studied with painters Paul Resika, Selina Trieff, and Robert Henry, all of whom were Hans Hofmann students in the 1940’s and 1950’s. Since 2004, Power has been an exhibiting artist at Berta Walker Gallery in Provincetown, MA, and for the past four decades has exhibited at various galleries and museums including George Billis Gallery in New York, NY, the U.S. Embassy in Muscat, Oman, New Britain Museum of American Art, Westmoreland Museum of American Art, Wichita Art Museum, Cape Cod Museum of Art, Cahoon Museum, and Provincetown Art Association and Museum. The artist’s work is included in the permanent collections of the U.S. Embassy, Valletta, Malta, and Provincetown Art Association and Museum. Power’s vision returns abstraction to its earliest roots, that of a bridge between the material and spiritual worlds. Her work is color-infused and evocative, emphasizing the horizon to depict the intimate landscape with the infinite sky and vast sea. Andre van der Wende wrote in Cape Arts Review in 2009, “Within fields of strong clean color and forceful gestures of oil paint – drips and splatters rain freely – Power’s work is spirited and energetic, deep and soulful, a winning combination of rapture and reserve.”
