Image of the Day, February 23, 2012

By Donna Poulton

Coming from a third generation ranching family Howard Post grew up working on the family ranch near Tucson, Arizona. When he was 17, he became a championship rodeo rider and continued to rodeo for years. Earning a BFA and an MFA in art, he became a full time artist in 1970 and has won numerous awards for his work. Post’s paintings are stylized and yet minimal with a sepia palette of tonal oranges, browns, blues and greens. His portrayal of the region and of a western lifestyle is informed by his long heritage and the aerial perspective seen in many of his paintings seems to come from a deep memory of place.

Howard Post will be a featured artist at the Medicine Man Gallery in Tucson on Saturday, March 3rd from 12 to 2pm and the exhibition will be up until May 1st, 2012.
