Catchin’ Current


Serena paints watercolors on site and draws detailed sketches, which she transforms into large oils. A selection of spectacular giclee prints were showcased to demonstrate Serena’s talent for interpreting color, space, and time within the various canyons of the Colorado Plateau. This series captured the towering cliffs of the Grand Canyon leading down the Colorado River, as well as a few new pieces from Page and the Glen Canyon area.

Powell Museum & Archives


Journey through a selection of the Powell Museum & Archives’ permanent collection from the comfort of your own home. Since its inception in 1969, the Powell Museum & Archives has accepted materials from the Bureau of Reclamation, hobby photographers and many others.

As a consequence, the museum has outgrown its ability to showcase it all. As of 2019, the museum has been aiming to digitize the full collection so that visitors can search or browse images and specimens through our online portal.
