…quote taken from the Academy Art Museum website. “Early in its 50-year history, The Academy Art Museum began its permanent collection with 11 works of art. Today, the collection contains more than 1,000 pieces including core holdings of European and American works on paper.

In 2013, the Museum received a donation of 45 works on paper by Frederick Hammersley, consisting of 10 computer drawings; 6 prints; 18 drawings; and 11 paintings. e oeuvre was a generous gift from the Frederick Hammersley Foundation, Albuquerque, NM. Hammersley was born in 1919, in Salt Lake City, UT and died in 2009 in Albuquerque, NM. He was raised in Idaho and moved to Los Angeles, after serving in World War II, to study at Chouinard Art Institute in Los Angeles. He soon developed a style of abstraction that incorporated geometric forms in his paintings that were called hard-edge painting, a style unique to Southern California. Hammersley was also a professor, teaching first at Jepson Art Institute in Los Angeles and later at Pomona College, Chouinard, and at the University of New Mexico.”
