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 realistic oil painter with a leaning towards creating imaginary worlds. Her interests include landscapes, quirky people and situations, and the rituals of life.  She maintained a studio and gallery in Corning, on historic Market Street for many years.  She is currently working from her home studio, developing new work.

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

Barbara has also been a fine art photographer, including a show at the Arnot Art Museum in 2012.  Her black and white photographs are storytelling opportunities.  They are observations of people and nature which make you think twice and look closer.  Inquire if interested.

She has an Art History degree from Brown University, followed by a 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.  She has maintained BHB Studio & Gallery for her paintings and photography since 2012.
