Beverly Hallam

Beverly Hallam: A twentieth century American printmaker and painter, Beverly Hallam studied art at the Massachusetts College of Art in Boston and graduated in 1945. Upon graduation she assumed the position of Head of the Art Department at Lasell Junior College for a period of four years. She then returned to the Massachusetts College of Art in 1949 as an instructor. In 1962 Beverly Hallam moved to Ogunquit, Maine and opened a studio for her art named the Barn Gallery.

During her career Beverly Hallam has dedicated much of her energies towards the medium of the monotype. Both painting and printmaking, the demanding monotype medium yields superb tonal values and shades in the hands of a master. The Search is indicative of Hallam’s highly regarded monotype art.

In 1978 Beverly Hallam donated a large collection of her papers to the Fogler Library at the University of Maine. This collection includes some of her illustrated books, such as The House by the Sea, written by May Sarton, as well as exhibition announcements and catalogs concerning her art from 1951 to 1978. Today the art of Beverly Hallam is included in many public and private collections in Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts and elsewhere. (photo)
