About Robert a Powell

A native Kentuckian Robert A. Powell grew up in the Appalachian foothills of Powell County and the Bluegrass country in Fayette County. His love for Kentucky's heritage and history has taken him to all 120 counties - to research, photograph and sketch. RAP is an author, historian, teacher, photographer, speaker and artist. After graduating from Bryan Station High School in Lexington, he earned his BA degree at Kentucky Wesleyan, and pursued graduate studies in communications at UK and Western. Powell worked as a journalist for the Clay City Times, Lexington Herald-Leader, and Owensboro Messenger-Inquirer. He taught journalism, art and English at high schools in both Kentucky and Florida, and served as a public relations specialist for the Kentucky Department of Education, the U. S. Office of Education, and Appalachian Regional Hospitals. He also served as Director of Development for Pioneer Playhouse,1000Kentucky's oldest outdoor theatre. Robert A. Powell was selected as one of the original Kentucky Heritage Artists in 1972, and was named Author of the Year by the Kentucky School Librarians in 1985. He has received many honors and citations from various groups across the state. Powell's most popular books include THIS IS KENTUCKY, his first book (1974). Some of his other more popular works include Kentucky Governors, Kentucky's Covered Bridges, Sketches of Kentucky and a miniature book, Kentucky Sketchbook. In 1977 he created a Kentucky history textbook for middle school students, and with his daughter Karen, developed one for 4th graders (Frontier Kentucky) two years later. True Kentucky Legends, released in 2002, reveals the exciting true story behind 14 of the most prevalent Kentucky legends in American folklore. Proclaimed by the Lexington Herald-Leader as "quite likely the most influential popular chronicler of Kentucky in recent years" Powell's newest book My Kentucky Sketchbook is "a portfolio" depicting a series of Kentucky landmarks - both well-known and rather obscure. The illustrations by Powell in his unique pen-ink style show why his work is so popular. Early in his career he decided to specialize in illustrating Kentucky Images, with an emphasis on landmarks. During that time he has illustrated thousands of subjects throughout Kentucky, Tennessee, Florida, Indiana, West Virginia as well as national landmarks scattered across the nation, but the concentration of his work has been Kentucky subjects.
