Regional Artist Spotlight: Jennifer Hammer
Jennifer Hammer is one of our regional artists in the spotlight through the end of October 2019.
She’ll tell you she has a Bowie address, but really lives in a corner of Jack County, Texas and her work attests to the fact that it doesn’t matter where you create art, it’s the heart that you put forth.
Hammer’s two pieces (seen above) include “Heart of the Trail” and “Night Lights,” both of which have won awards.
“Heart of the Trail” is the first cowboy portrait piece she created. Using pastels, including several shades of brown she mixed using sterilized earth she scooped up after the 2013 Creede fire in Colorado, the art is based off a photograph shot by a fellow Texas artist, Jack Milchanowski. “Heart of the Trail” has won Best of Show and People’s Choice Awards at the Chisholm Trail Arts Association’s 2017 National Juried Art Show, and a Patron’s Award at the Breckenridge Fine Art Center’s 2018 National Juried Art Show. It is available for $1,695.
“Night Lights” is an original piece that Hammer created based off a variety of images she has seen over the years. It won first place this year at the CTAA show that had a Native American theme. It is available for $1,325. Both come with Certificate of Authenticity and can be taken home on the same day of purchase.
