"Sit a Spell" in Post, Texas

The Caprock Cultural Association of Post, Texas is happy to sponsor the 1st Annual "Sit a Spell in Post" from August thru October 2013. This outdoor art exhibit is located along Main Street in Post and it features 15 original works of art. Each artist was invited to transform a wooden chair into an imaginative work of art with their personal interpretation of the spirit of Post and Garza County.

Local artists Carol Koenig, Slaton, and Kathryn Millis Flanagan of Wolfforth, each presented their chair to the Association for viewing on August 1, 2013 at an Artist Reception held at The Heritage House in Post, Texas.

"A rugged, metal pump jack in the foreground of this mixed media design pays tribute to the oil industry of Garza County as whimsical stars shine down on the Caprock." ~ Koenig

"Like prickly pear cactus, the spirit of the people who live here will forever bloom with the slightest encouragement." ~ Flanagan

After much discussion among the artists about the trials and errors, both Carol and Kathryn said they would do it all over again. It was an exercise of the mind and heart to design and execute the design on a 3-D object. Maybe next year's exhibit will be bigger and better. So take a few moments and wonder down to Post, Texas. Drive the Main Street to see the outdoor exhibit. Here was just a sampling of the fifteen chairs on display...but they will be there for only a limited time!
