Guinn Powell: Deep Roots

Jackie Townsell Bear Creek Heritage Center

Please join me at Irving’s Juneteenth Celebration. My latest work entitled "Deep Roots" will be on exhibit at the Bear Creek Museum’s Garden. 

For more than 23 years, the City of Irving has hosted a Juneteenth event, commemorating the date that Black Texans first learned of President Abraham Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation. Join the City of Irving and the West Irving Improvement Association from 4 to 7 p.m. June 16 at 3925 Jackson St., for the 2018 celebration.

This year, the Texas Native Plant Garden, located at the Jackie Townsell Bear Creek Heritage Center, will serve as a backdrop for an outdoor art exhibit featuring Dallas Artist, Guinn Powell. Artwork will vary in theme and will feature landscapes, waterscapes and African-American themed art.
The celebration also will feature a free concert and a community picnic sponsored by In-N-Out Burger. Outdoor games and children activities will be available. Residents are encouraged to bring lawn chairs and blankets for concerts.
