The Powers Art Center is open to the public from 10:00AM to 3:00PM, Monday through Thursday. The exception to these hours may be for scheduled maintenance, holidays, or weather related closures.
As we celebrate our 5th anniversary year we have just installed a New exhibit of Jasper Johns limited edition works on paper. The new exhibit opens on June 10th and will be on display until May 2020. The exhibition is inspired by an exhibit that opened at the Royal Academy of Arts in London in 2017, entitled "Something Resembling Truth". The same exhibition then traveled to the Broad Museum in Los Angeles in 2018. The works take the viewer on a Journey thru several themes that inspired the curation of the exhibit, visiting Jasper Johns iconic Flags, Targets and Numbers as well as other master prints that explore the depth of Johns work.
The current exhibit also chronicles the history of Jasper Johns print making at Universal Limited Art Editions (ULAE) in New York with works dating from 1960 to 2018
The Powers Art Center also exhibits an extensive collection of Takashi Nakazato ceramic works. Takashi is the 13th generation in his family to create traditional Karatsu ceramics and has been part of the Powers collection for decades.
