Artist of the Day-Harmony Hammond at MacDowell Colony(click on image for more)

Harmony Hammond was working in the printmaking studio at the MacDowell Colony. She had a series of maybe 12 pieces pinned up on the wall. They were made of handmade paper and grommets she had pounded flat into the paper and then run through the press. I’ve included a couple similar ones from Google. She was delightful to talk to…excited to have a press to work on. She’s no newcomer. She’s long been involved in the feminist movement and has written extensively. She’s been awarded a Guggenheim and fellowships from the NEA and the Rockefeller Foundation…not too shabby.
