Nancy Powers is a Kansas painter/sculptor born in Seattle, Washington raised on Mercer Island. She began her creative journey early in life, drawing pictures, painting and making images of the animals and birds and the landscape on her parents’ farm…yes, there was a time when Mercer Island had farms. She spent much of her time playing with the animals and making tree houses and camps in the woods so her art often incorporates animals, birds, insects, reptiles, amphibians and natural components, wood, stone and metal.
Nancy exhibited three sculptures and one watercolor in the 2013 Wichita Sculpture Guild Show at the Mid-America Fine Arts Center, Wichita Kansas. In 2014 she participated in the on campus show at the Cadman Gallery Ten Cubed show exhibiting one bronze called Cherub. In 2015, she participated in the creation of the Peace Pole at Shocker Hall along with the WSU Sculpture Guild who was commissioned to make a Peace Pole, a prayer for peace, as part of a global peace and art movement. The design is of a globe with three DNA strands weaving together to symbolize a shared humanity among nations. In 2015, she donated a limestone carving, Fingerbowl and won best sculpture bowl, and in 2016 donated limestone carving, Snakebowl to the Wichita State Ceramics Department Empty Bowls fund-raiser. In 2016, she participated in the Wichita State University Trailer Show, exhibiting one bronze called Another Bug, a combination of metal and semi-precious stone ammolite.
