Bio

Barbara Hall Blumer(pronounced Bloomer) (born 1955, USA) lives in Corning, New York in the Finger Lakes region of New York state.

She is a painter and a photographer, and her work can be found at her studio and gallery in Corning, on historic Market Streeet, at 11 West Market Street, between the square and the movie theater.

Her paintings are done mostly in oils, and are colorful interpretations of her view of the world and relationships.

Her black and white photographs are "storytelling without all the blanks filled in."  They are observations of people and nature which make you think twice and look closer.

She has an Art History degree from Brown University, and a prior business career, including Dansk Designs, Corning Incorporated and Two Sisters Studio jewelry. She began seriously studying painting and photography in the 90’s and had her first exhibit in 2003.
