“Connecting people and communities to the significance of river history by celebrating the cultures and landscapes of the Colorado Plateau” is the mission statement of the John Wesley Powell River History Museum in Green River.

One local Utah artist has been capturing the plateau’s beauty for 35 years. Her name is Serena Supplee of Moab, and the museum will be displaying her artwork from Monday, July 4, through May 30, 2017.

The museum, which is located at 1765 E. Main St. in Green River, will be kicking off the “Drift and Dream” exhibit of watercolors and oil paintings with an opening reception on July 4 from 2 to 5 p.m.

Supplee has been described as an artist who exemplifies talent, dedication and persistence in one’s craft.

Her artwork may be most recognized from the more than 100 images that she has published as notecards since 1983, as well as wall calendars since 2008.

For a decade, she worked as a guide on the Colorado, Green and San Juan rivers. She said she continues to row her boat and follow her heart down rivers that inspire her drawing and painting.
