Exhibition - Alan Powers - The Art of an Art Historian

Monday, 05 November 2018 - Thursday, 15 November 2018
at the Art Workers’ Guild

Better known for his books on mid twentieth century British artists, architects and designers, Alan Powers also produced a considerable body of paintings and graphics, mostly in the 1980s. These are the subject of a forthcoming book from Inky Parrot Press, with text by the artist and introductory essays by Peter Davidson and Michael Hall. In anticipation of this, he staged a small retrospective exhibition at the Art Workers Guild, of which he has been a member since 1982.

The exhibition included a number of watercolour paintings for sale, and others borrowed from their owners, showing buildings, landscapes and interiors. There were sample of etchings, lithographs, magazine illustration, painted furniture and a couple of peep shows.
