Community Spotlight: Nancy Hammond Editions
Celebrated Annapolis-based painter, Nancy Hammond tells her story and the story of the land in her elegant and joyous work. Creating out of her quiet studio on the eastern shore of the Chesapeake Bay, her work captures the sweeping beauty of the water while exploring the nuance of nature’s splendor.
Imagine majestic cranes wading through delicate reeds, sweeping river landscapes, and tranquil scenes of bay life with sails dotting the horizon and colorful coastal homes leading to the waterfront.
About Nancy Hammond Editions
Hammond grew up in Schenectady, New York, and spent a portion of her youth in Skaneateles, one of the Finger Lakes located in upstate New York. Spending her summers on Murray Isle in the St. Lawrence River and spending a number of years cruising the Chesapeake on a sloop called “Northern Spy” deeply influenced her body of work. Her use of design in portraying natural scenes adds a refreshing contemporary tone.
Beginning with a series of silk-screened prints, her designs can now be found on a variety of custom goods ranging from etched crystal bowls to linen tea towels. Her work is on exhibit in her galleries located in Annapolis, Maryland, and St. Michaels, Maryland, and has also been exhibited in galleries such as the Baltimore Museum of Art and Maryland Institute of Art.
Art and Framing Consultation
Nancy Hammond Editions offers both art and framing consultation by appointment. During an art consultation, Nancy Hammond Editions’ gracious and knowledgeable staff helps select the perfect piece to suit your home. With a framing consultation, her staff assists guests with a frame selection that fits the art and their home perfectly. Be sure to bring photos of your space as well as dimensions if needed so the staff can make the perfect selection.
They offer a wide range of options to suit every style or budget, so finding the ideal piece and frame is effortless. All frames are built in-house and by hand. Framing options for 32-by 48-inch prints include a beveled gold frame, a warm brushed silver frame, and a silver driftwood frame. Smaller prints are already framed for convenience, but custom options are also available.
Both 32-by 48-inch and custom frames are handled by their professional in-house framer. Once a custom order has been placed, the framer does their magic, building the frame to perfectly meet the unique specifications set by the guest and in-house experts.
Standard framing turn-around is 6-8 weeks, although some exceptions may apply. Nancy Hammond Editions encourages patrons to contact their helpful staff for more details.
