Rosalyn Gale Powell was a Bainbridge Island artist known for her proficiency with still lifes.
Ms. Powell was born March 6, 1929, in England. At 19 she went to Paris and studied portraiture. In 1952 Powell moved to Seattle where she would go on to study art with Kenneth Callahan and Jacob Elshin before continuing her painting lessons for two years at the University of Washington.
For many years she was represented by the Foster/White Gallery, and her works hang in homes throughout the Northwest and beyond. Powell’s paintings are in the collection of the Seattle Art Museum, The Frye Art Museum, Seafirst Bank, Paccar and the Bainbridge Public Library, among others. Beginning in the 1980s, she was commissioned to create several posters for the Pike Place Market.
