Leading Humanity to new levels of awareness is the powerful dynamic that inspires Linda Ohlson Graham's photography and writing.
Linda feels an intimate connection to the cosmos … because she spent thousands of miles with the night sky in view …
4 hours on …
4 hours off …
Sailing in the wind rooted her more firmly in her intention to be a … perhaps THE … catalyst to WORLD PEACE and calmer weather patterns.
Linda is honored to have been named CO Department of Peace Poet Laureate in 2009. She is a fine photographer and ecstatic poet who has sailed thousands of miles...including the Bahamas, the Caribbean, Central and South America. She also lived within (1984-93) and co-directed (1984-96) The (J.M.W). Turner Museum in Denver, CO. The Turner Museum was chosen 'One of the 99 Finest Museums in America' by Atlantic Monthly while Linda was co-director. ... Her photography and spiritual writing portray the richness of her life's experience
Christie Palmer Lowrance
"Linda's stunning photographs of sprawling, near shapeless coastal landscapes depict the glorious union of earth, sea and sky, a theme that has become the core of her writing as well as her photography."
A quote to Linda in a letter from her former-husband Douglass Montrose-Graem (d.):
"Undersigned is really pleased to hear about your growing repute. Now a prayer: may your genius translate into some tangible support from the global village which undoubtedly benefits from your stellar presence. Walk in the Light."
Dear longtime friend and well recognized Cape Cod and New York artist Haynes Ownby (passed on) said of Linda's work (with a Texas accent):
It's guud … it's really guud.
Another dear friend and lovely lovely person June Gordon said to Linda:
"Nothing daunts you … Keep on the trajectory"
After five years of sailing, I returned to the Cape for a year and a half, then continued my travels on land, eventually settling in Colorado. From 1984-96 I was Co-Director and Trustee of The (J.M.W.) Turner Museum in Denver. Turner, a master painter of light, is renowned for his atmospheric sunrises that vaporize form and dissolve the physical into magical timeless images.
"It was a public museum and also my home."
While I was Co-Director, Douglass, my former husband (founder of The Turner Museum) and I started a classical concert series in our museum/home … with symphony and chamber orchestra musicians. We created a buffet for intermissions which received an award from a local Denver paper 'Best place to eat while viewing art'. The museum subsequently was chosen by Atlantic Monthly, 'One of the 99 finest museums in America'.
I love the mountains, but was drawn, as so many artists are, to Cape Cod. I love the light here and the people … I always felt that Cape Cod was home.
I feel a connection to the ocean … it has an energy that gives me peace … it flows over our whole planet and connects all of us, like one family.
I am excited about my recent shows because I've been able to put pieces of art together that portray what I have been writing. This writing conveys comforting profound thoughts about bringing peace to people … and Humanity's evolvement into a quieter, more peaceful age.
is my book which includes my photographs, poetry, and one liners about the consciousness on our planet lifting and Heaven not being some other place, some other time, but right here in the midst of us.
