Bryan Hammond returns to the county with a new collection of works. Accompanied by artistic partner, Joshua Blue, the show will highlight recent works, which highlights their view of tangible versus digital.
Bryan grew up in Amador County and was a graduate of Amador High School. Training under Howard Rees and Rand Hugget led to a continued study of fine art at the University of North Carolina Charlotte. Joshua and Bryan first met during their tenure at the college and began to promote work around the city in gallery’s and their own grass roots shows.
Joshua and Bryan now live and create their works in Portland, Oregon. There is a balance of conceptual and traditional technique, which has developed into a collection of abstract images and pieces. The use of texture, object and medium are interchanged to accomplish works, which comment on their view of our current environment and experience. These often directly focus on the response to the digital world that we all are enveloped within.
The show opens with a reception on Saturday, July 2 at Gallery 10 on Eureka St. in Sutter Creek.
