Fly Me to the Moon

Updated: Jun 23


Just off the easel, "Fly Me to the Moon" is an exploration of surrealism and vivid imagery, with each brushstroke meticulously placed to bring a dreamlike landscape to life. This oil painting on wood, grand in size at 72" x 48", is a tapestry of color and symbolism that invites us into an alternate world.

REGIONAL EXHIBITS

Linda H. Post painting at Art Complex Museum

"Fly Me to the Moon" is still in my studio, but quite a few of my paintings have wandered out into the world lately. First, of course, is "The Procession of Hope and Feathers", on prominent display at the Art Complex Museum in Duxbury, MA. It has its very own wall! The architecture of the museum is breathtaking, and this exhibit will be on display through September 1.

A perfect reason to head for the ocean.


"Soliloquy" by Linda H. Post at Danforth Art Museum

At the Danforth Art Museum in Framingham, MA, "Soliloquy", from my Costa Rica series, is included in the prestigious 2024 Annual Juried Exhibition, opening June 22 and running to September 22.


Listen to me talk about Soliloquy! I love that the museum encourages the artists to talk about their particular piece. You can hear me online - or better yet, visit the exhibition and use the link next to my actual painting.


NATIONAL EXHIBITS

"Dance of the Pelicans" at Loveland Art Museum

"Dance of the Pelicans" is flying off to Colorado. The Loveland Museum in Loveland, CO (wouldn't you want to live in a place with a name like that?) is hosting this year's very competitive juried exhibition, Expanding Horizons, organized by American Women Artists.


The show will be up from September 14 through November 10. They publish a beautiful full color catalogue in conjunction with the museum show - each artist has her own page. American Women Artists is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the inspiration, celebration, and encouragement of women in the visual fine arts. AWA began over 30 years ago and uses the power of collaboration to connect women artists and provide resources and opportunities to advance their careers. The 25 in 25 Initiative (25 museum shows in 25 years) was launched to highlight the work of its members and inspire dialog about the importance of gender equity in museum exhibitions.


AWA Annual Online Juried Exhibition

American Women Artists also sponsors an online juried exhibition. "The Willing Suspension of Disbelief" was my entry, and the show can be viewed online until July 30.


33 Contemporary Gallery's July exhibition is already online on Artsy.net. It is called CONVERSATION. So much of my work explores relationships, so it does seem a perfect fit. I have two pieces in the show.


On the left is "Dancers by the Sea", a small (for me) 11" x 14" oil. It is very similar in concept to "Secrets of Tides" which, at 24" x 36", is a much larger and more detailed oil painting. If you've been following me, you may remember that "Secrets of the Tides" was included in an exhibit last summer at the Cape Cod Museum of Art.


COMING UP

There's a new painting in my "pink moon" series sketched out and ready to start. After completing a big one, I try to give myself breathing room and tackle something small in scale - in this case 24" x 12". I also have two wonderful new models, and I look forward to the ideas and inspiration I'm sure they will bring to my work.

Fine Art Print (Float #1) by Linda H. Post

A GIFT OF LOVE. AN ARCHIVAL FINE ART PRINT FOR A WEDDING GIFT!

Give the gift of art. My limited-edition prints are museum quality fine art reproductions, individually printed on 100% rag paper with archival inks. I hand sign and number each one. I can even personalize your gift. For instance: "for John and Susan on your wedding day." Take a look: SHOP FINE ART PRINTS | LH Post Fine Art


Since we're kind of on the subject of the moon, did you know that digital images of some of my paintings are archived on the moon as part of the Lunar Codex? It's a cultural time capsule of visual, literary, and performing arts from throughout today's world. Cool, huh!


I wish you a splendid summer, filled with sunshine, friends and family.

Linda
