Works on Paper Gallery: Featuring Frederick Hammersley
Internationally renowned artist and longtime Albuquerque resident Frederick Hammersley was most famous for his abstract paintings and prints, and as one of the four "Abstract Classicists" celebrated in a 1959 exhibition of that same name. In conjunction with Gods and Heroes: Masterpieces from the École des Beaux Arts, the Albuquerque Museum is proud to present a selection of Hammersley's works on paper from a recent gift from the Frederick Hammersley Foundation.
At the heart of the city-wide On the Map: Unfolding Albuquerque Art + Design exhibition collaboration, the Albuquerque Museum’s exhibition titled Visualizing Albuquerque, curated by Joseph Traugott, will investigate the unique history and present of central New Mexico art and serve as an umbrella for institutional partners.
