Very happy to have been featured in the Portland Presss Herald on November 11th 2018. Herewith a few quotes:

Folded vessel

“Post’s work reaches to both the elemental level of the material of felt and the liminal edges of what we hope from ambitious visual art at its best.”

 

 

 

“Post’s felt vessels play brilliantly within the vessel tradition, one of the oldest and eternally most robust strands in the visual arts. From there, they leap into contemporary sculpture. Her wall pieces interact with her scarves and textile-related pieces in ways that both acknowledge and challenge our contemporary expectations.”

Eco-printed vessel

“But in Post’s felted objects, I saw beautiful and compelling art. Her double-hulled felted vessels are sculptures worthy of the leading vessel traditions.”

“Post’s felt work, in particular, comprises some of the most compelling fiber work we’ve seen recently in the area, and Maine has a particularly strong set of fiber artists. The more you see of her work – wall pieces, wearable art, vessels, hand-printed fabrics and so on – the more Post’s compelling sensibilities come into focus. It’s a small show, but there’s a lot to take in.”
