JUROR FOR PRIZES: CAROL KUMMER
Carol Kummer grew up in Corning, New York. She received a BFA with a dual major in painting and illustration from Syracuse University. After moving to California, she worked as a graphic designer for Stanford Law School and as director of design at University of California, San Francisco.
After leaving UCSF to do art full-time Carol pursued master studies with Bob Gerbracht, a portrait/figurative teacher, and Randy Sexton, who teaches plein air.
(Plein air is landscape painting that is completed outdoors, where light, weather and objects are constantly in motion.)
Carol studied classical realism with Rob Anderson for three years to further refine the accuracy of her drawings and capture the essential mood and color of her subjects. She also pursued still life painting with Tony Curanaj at the Grand Central Academy and écorché (the study of anatomy) and figurative art with Andy Ameral at the Golden Gate Academy.
Working in pastel and oil, Carol continues her focus on contemporary realism. Currently she paints and draws landscape, still life, portrait and figurative art. Carol also paints plein air throughout the Bay Area and California and works at her San Francisco studio at Hunters Point Shipyard.
Her shows have included the UCSF Faculty Alumni House; the Epperson Gallery, Valona, CA;
the Louie Maeger Gallery, Fremont, CA and the Oakland Rockridge Library. She exhibits at the bi-annual Hunters Point Open Studios. Carol’s work has been featured in “Strokes of Genius 2: The Best of Drawing Light and Shadow” by Rachel Rubin Wolf.
