Event Details
POST is partnering with the New Museum of Los Gatos (NUMU) during their opening of a new exhibit called "The Hiking Club: A Vocabulary of Yearning." Through evocative drawings, etchings, and paintings, Linda Simmel explores personal and cultural connections between landscape, memory, and history. The Hiking Club: A Vocabulary of Yearning intertwines the story of being the daughter of an immigrant, with the sublime in nature. The works in the show are in part homage to landscape, trees, and the histories they’ve lived in, as well as Simmel’s immigrant father and the time in which he lived. Representatives of POST will be on hand to share about our work and enjoy the exhibit with guests/
