Houston Artist Celebrates Astronomy with Art that Evokes Galactic Grandeur

Years ago, Houston artist Linda Summers Posey caught her husband’s love of astronomy. But stargazing isn’t an easy hobby to pursue in Houston, so Linda set her imagination loose on the cosmos. The result is paintings that evoke the grandeur of the galaxy in a fanciful way.

Part of Linda’s Galaxy Series is on display in my upcoming exhibits -- Red Hot Art at Sculptures by Design and Blue on Blue at Max's Wine Dive.

“I’m having fun designing constellations my way,” Linda says. “Why not? Most real constellations bear little resemblance to the animals or people they represent.”

“I didn’t want to reproduce real galaxies and constellations,” she explains. “The Hubble Telescope handles that so well. I’d much rather make up something you might find in a galaxy far, far away.” So she invented the “Heart of the Universe,” “Love Galaxy” and “Red Sky at Night” – to name just a few of her star-studded creations.

Linda’s artistic goal is to expand her own self-expression to the highest level and, in so doing, to inspire others to express themselves creatively. In 2007 she won second place in her division of the Houston Civic Arts Association fall open show with her first astronomy-inspired painting. Her work as been seen in most of the Artists Alive and Well shows and in the Houston Civic Arts Association 2007 fall open show; her jewelry designs have been featured by Jan Domenico. Linda participated in the Art on the Avenue auction, November 14, 2009, and the Artists Alive and Well Winter Solstice juried exhibit, December 9, 2009-January 8, 2010, JP Morgan Chase Bank Building, Heritage Hall.

Linda is the founder and 2007-2008 president of Artists Alive and Well, Inc., an artists’ network that gives emerging artists the support they need to take control of their art careers and to show their work with passion and confidence – regardless of the economy.
