Desert Caballeros Western Museum



An exhibition featuring the work of nationally acclaimed artist Howard Post will open at the Desert Caballeros Western Museum.

Post concentrates on images of cowboys, corrals, horses, livestock, and wide pastures using his own signature impressionistic style and array of colors. Christine C. Brindza, Glasser Curator of Art of the American West at the Tucson Museum of Art, notes, "Howard does not include gunfights and bar brawls and other highly dynamic images. Instead, he focuses on the quiet, real moments of the American West." Post's work has been compared to Regionalist painter Grant Wood, Western artist Maynard Dixon, Modern artist Wayne Thiebaud, and others. But his distinctive imagery stands apart - Post utilizes his own color schemes and recognizes shapes and patterns in nature as well as in human-made structures.

The exhibition was conceived and curated by the Tucson Museum of Art and Historic Block and includes approximately 40 paintings and sculptures of assorted sizes from Post's personal collection, the Tucson Museum of Art's permanent collection, and private collections. The exhibition made its first stop in Cartersville, Georgia, at the Booth Western Art Museum before returning to the Tucson Museum of Art and Historic Block. The Desert Caballeros Western Museum is the exhibition's third and final stop on its tour.

Howard Post will give a presentation about the exhibition at Desert Caballeros Western Museum on Thursday, Oct. 11 at 11 a.m. His talk is included with paid Museum admission or free for Museum Members.

The exhibition runs through November 25, 2018. DCWM's exhibitions are sponsored in part by AZCOMP Technologies; John and Lynne Boyer; Christine and Paul Branstad; Dita and John Daub; The DeVore Foundation, Alta and Bill DeVore, Trustees; Jim and Rea Ludke; Sharon and Lanny Martin; Elaine and Peter Schweitzer; and Kathleen Parrish and Doug Spencer.
