The Brinton Museum presents, Linework to Linen: The Prints and Paintings of Joel Ostlind, an exhibit of intaglios and acrylic paintings by Wyoming artist Joel Ostlind, opening in the S. K. Johnston, Jr. Family Gallery on June 15th. Born in Casper (WY) Ostlind is true to his craft of printmaking and painting which have long represented his mediums of choice. The Brinton Museum’s show includes nearly sixty prints, watercolors and paintings by Ostlind from as early as 2004 along with new work and focuses on Joel’s favorite subjects: Wyoming landscapes, ranches, horses, cowboys and fishing. These works evolve from the life he has lived in the West and attest to his honesty as both an artist and an individual. Linework to Linen: The Prints and Paintings of Joel Ostlind is available to museum visitors through August 4th.
A reception for Joel Ostlind takes place on Sunday, June 16, from 3 to 5 PM. This event is free and open to the public.
The artist will present a printmaking demonstration on printing an intaglio from a copper plate at The Brinton Museum on Thursday, July 25, at 7 PM. This program is offered as free admission for museum members, $5 for non-members. For more information, call (307) 672-3173.
