This is the announcement for my upcoming two-person show, “Everlasting Color”, at Chase-Edwards Gallery in Bridgehampton, with painter Athos Zacharias. The opening is Saturday, May 23, from 6:00 to 9:00pm.
“Everlasting Color” explores the meaning of what both Zacharias and Hammond continue to follow with the tradition of what the Abstract Expressionists cultivated during the 1950’s and 1960’s.
Hammond and Zacharias were among a fertile circle of colleagues and friends such as Jackson Pollock, Lee Krasner, Willem de Kooning, Elaine de Kooning, and the plethora of contemporary artists who continue to live and work on the east End of Long Island.
This exhibition explores a history in movement through playful light and color, contributing to its course through their creativity and aesthetic understanding within.
