The West Observed:
The Art of Howard Post

James J. and Louise R. Glasser Galleries March 3 – Jun 24, 2018

Exhibition Dates:
March 3 – Jun 24, 2018

The West Observed: The Art of Howard Post examines work by this prolific artist of the American West spanning over his 30-year career. Post is continually inspired by his experiences from living in the West. A third-generation Arizonan, he utilizes traditional Western themes in his paintings, drawings, and sculpture based on what he knows: ranching and the rodeo. His works focus on images of cowboys, corrals, horses, livestock, and wide pastures using his own signature style and an array of colors. This exhibition debuts new work by the artist, pieces from the artist’s personal collection, the museum’s collection, and private loans, and is accompanied by a catalogue published by the museum.
