Where Do We Come From? What Are We? Where Are We Going?

The Art Complex Museum in Duxbury, MA is mounting an exhibition based on women artists' interpretation of the famous Gauguin painting that hangs in the MFA Boston. Conceived by the Massachusetts chapter of the National Association of Women Artists, this juried museum show encompasses a broad spectrum of ideas and mediums. I am honored to be included.

Linda H. Post oil painting, The Procession of Hope and Feathers.

I will exhibit The Procession of Hope and Feathers, on its first journey outside of Northampton. All of my works occupy a mythic place in our consciousness, and question what we know about the world. The girls and women in my paintings make us ask, “What are they thinking?”  Their placement in such lush, enigmatic settings questions, “Why are we here?” About the same scale as Gauguin's Where Do We Come From? What Are We? Where Are We Going?, at 11 feet wide, the four women of The Procession of Hope and Feathers are accompanied by four birds, two bird masks, and a winged helmet.

New drawing from my travels

Fresh new art supplies!

Opening up new art materials is more fun than a barrel of monkeys. I knew I would be traveling places this winter, so I looked for something portable to bring along with me. This compact box of pastel pencils with sliding drawers and a couple of pads of heavy, archival paper fit the bill - and my luggage.

Does this painting look familiar?

The Willing Suspension of Disbelief received a rave review from Artscope Magazine last summer when it was on view at the Danforth Art Museum for the Annual Juried Exhibition. This year it is included in Girl Art Now, a virtual exhibition at Hera Gallery. As the curator said, "This was a very, VERY difficult decision to narrow down, with over 800 entries! As we celebrate our 50th anniversary as one of the first women-run galleries to open in the United States, we are honored to be able to host another year of artists and thought-provoking, consciousness-raising exhibitions."

In other news, two online exhibits just ended, but you can still follow the links. Frozen Dreams & Abstract Realities: Winter’s Dual Nature mounted by the National Organization of Women Artists featured my monotype Hillside Revels for which I received Honorable Mention.

33 Contemporary Gallery exhibited my large pastel, Wake, in their winter show on called W A T E R.

I'm looking forward to sharing more good stuff, plus updates on the big painting on my easel as we head into the spring. If you aren't already in the loop and receiving my very occasional emails, please sign up here. And do share these journal entries on social media and with your friends.
