Art is an important part of the visitor experience at New Hampshire Boat Museum (NHBM).
“We love to feature the work of local artists, many of whom present landscapes that resonate with our visitors,” said Martha Cummings, NHBM executive director. “We are pleased to welcome Lauren and feature her work throughout the month of July.”
Since graduating from the University of New Hampshire in the 1980s, Hammond has continued to paint, draw, and teach art. After a 10-year career as a graphic artist, she has taught art at a local private school while spending most of her free time working on canvases and inspiring others to join her en plein-air.
“The forests, mountains, flowers, gardens and light are just what I want to paint,” said Hammond, who said living near nature in New Hampshire (Wolfeboro) is her inspiration.
Founded in 1992 by antique and classic boating enthusiasts, NHBM is committed to inspire people of all ages with an understanding of, and appreciation for, the boating heritage of New Hampshire’s fresh waterways. To become a member, or learn more about NHBM, visit nhbm.org
