Original works by Annapolis artist Nancy Hammond now line
the walls of the Starboard Room in Carrol's Creek restaurant in Annapolis.
The permanent collection of silk-screened posters depicts graphicimpressions of Annapolis, Chesapeake Bay life, and the sailing scene.
Surrounding by busy marinas and with a commanding view of the capital and harbor, Carrol's Creek makes an appropriate location for this exhibit.
Hammond works have been shown at the Baltimore Museum of Art, the Maryland Institute of Art and the Addison-Ripley Gallery in Washington, among others.
In 1981, she was the winner of the Maryland State Poster Competition. Her prints reflect the eye of an accomplished artist, sailor and observer and have been praised by critics and art lovers.
The prints are all hand-pulled from hand cut stencils and the limited editions are each signed and numbered by the artist in pencil.
Descriptive literature and price lists are available at the restaurant as well as the artist's own Annapolis studios.
Carrol's Creek restaurant is located at 410 Severn Avenue in Eastport. Information: 263-8102.
