JOLENE POWELL: ZEPHYR MEMORIES

FRIDAY, JAN. 30, HILLSBOROUGH

ENO GALLERY—A zephyr is a light, perhaps playful wind, and its spirit is plainly embodied as thin horizontal slipstreams in many of Jolene Powell's impressionistic vistas. But the gestural marks animating her otherwise placid paintings of riverbeds, tree lines and rock formations take on other forms as well, often appearing as slashing rain or in ranged pools that can't help but recall Monet's water lilies. Geography and meteorology mingle as invisible currents are made manifest through the artist's bright, warming sensitivity to color. Powell, a Professor of Art at Ohio's Marietta College, will breeze through town for this opening reception; the show runs until Feb. 24. 6 p.m., free, 100 S. Churton St., Hillsborough, 919-883-1415, www.enogallery.net. —Brian Howe
