The abstract realist paintings of Holyoke artist Russell Steven Powell engage each viewer with the complex beauty of the wild. Powell’s diverse career as an author, artist, videographer, and magazine publisher reflect a reverence for nature and a passion for the New England Landscape. His paintings have been widely exhibited in group and solo shows in western Massachusetts and Cape Cod.
