The meeting will take place at the Wellington Community Center (12150 W. Forest Hill Blvd.).

Postell, formerly from Chicago, visited the Art Institute of Chicago regularly. She now resides in Delray Beach and Twin Lakes, Wisconsin, with a view of little Lake Marie.
Throughout her business career, Postell exercised creativity by hand-painting Christmas cards, painting ceramic gifts for friends and family, and even designing needlepoint canvases. She began to paint full time after retiring in 2019.
Postell works in watercolor, pastels and acrylics.
Postell’s paintings celebrate color and use light and deep shadow to bring drama and atmosphere. She paints still life, landscapes, roomscapes, and portraits of children, adults and pets, in color-saturated watercolor, gouache, soft pastel or acrylic.
Some of her recent awards include the 2022 APBC juried show Judge’s Recognition for “Unmade Bed” (watercolor on cold press); the 2023 APBC juried show Featured Artist and Judge’s Recognition for “Sitting on the Dock” (acrylic on canvas); and the 2023 Fall International Online Exhibition National Oil & Acrylic Painters Society (applied).
