Abby Lam­mers, a na­tive of Mis­souri, has been a work­ing artist for 24 years and main­tains stu­dios in East Fal­mouth, Mas­sachusetts, and Rochester, New York. Af­ter work­ing in the ad­ver­tis­ing in­dus­try for 13 years as an art di­rec­tor, she launched her paint­ing ca­reer in 1994.

A love for de­sign is clearly ap­par­ent in her land­scape and still life paint­ings where she presents or­di­nary ob­jects and scenes in a re­fresh­ing con­tem­po­rary rep­re­sen­ta­tional style. The in­for­ma­tion for her paint­ings is gath­ered pri­mar­ily by work­ing from life and work­ing plein air. Us­ing a range of pal­ettes, Lam­mers ex­plores how color changes the ap­pear­ance and re­la­tion­ships of ob­jects to one an­other. Her eclec­tic com­bi­na­tions of color, form and asym­met­ri­cal com­po­si­tion force the viewer to re­con­sider their per­spec­tive on the ev­ery­day.

“My process starts by work­ing di­rectly from life with the main fo­cus be­ing on com­po­si­tion/de­sign and ren­der­ing the struc­ture of the sub­ject,” she says. “If I feel like the orig­i­nal piece has ‘legs’

I will move on to nu­mer­ous value stud­ies from which

I then cre­ate var­i­ous color stud­ies, ex­per­i­ment­ing with dif­fer­ent pal­ettes and color tem­per­a­tures.”

Her work has been fea­tured in nu­mer­ous group and solo shows at mu­se­ums, cul­tural cen­ters and gal­leries through­out the United States. Lam­mers is rep­re­sented by the Co­p­ley So­ci­ety of Art, Bos­ton, and her art can be found in Mas­sachusetts at Charles

Fine Arts in Glouces­ter and Chap­man Art Gallery in Co­tuit. Her work will be on view in the 64th an­nual Na­tional Ju­ried Ex­hi­bi­tion of the Na­tional So­ci­ety of Painters in Ca­sein and Acrylic through July 6, and in Art @ The Museum at Oster­ville His­tor­i­cal Museum on July 26 from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m.
