Jane Hammond: Paper Work

Wednesday, October 01, 2008 – Sunday, January 11, 2009

  • For Everyone

The exhibition features Hammond’s unique works on paper made over the last 15 years from a myriad of techniques and materials, along with prints and books. All of the objects rely on the artist’s “vocabulary” of 276 borrowed images which she has manipulated endlessly to produce visually rich and mentally stimulating compositions that provoke thought, feeling, and new meaning about interaction and communication. Zany and mysterious, the works are flat and three-dimensional, large and small, painted and drawn, photographed, and printed.

Jane Hammond: Paper Work was organized by the Mount Holyoke College Art Museum. The exhibition and accompanying catalogue were made possible in part by the Lucy P. Eisenhart Fund, the Susan B. Weatherbie (class of 1972) Exhibition Development Fund, the Mount Holyoke College Art Museum Friends of Art, and a generous grant from the Andy Warhol Foundation.
