Abby Abrams isn’t just “talented,” a friend of the artist declares with some heat, “she’s gifted!”
But the friend concedes that the Springs painter/sculptor is not widely known, despite numerous shows on the East End. Regardless, Abrams continues to work in her studio, for love, not money. Her résumé testifies to a flourishing career working in many media—oil, watercolor, acrylic, leather, metal, wood, stone, ceramic, bronze, pen and ink. She’s done illustrations for CBS Records, Doubleday Books, record sleeves, and painted names and signs on boats in the Caribbean and on Long Island. Locally, she’s been included in and has curated juried exhibitions and invitationals and has also taught at The Art Barge in Amagansett. Lately, however, she’s been quietly painting flowers and scenes from diaries she’s been keeping and sketching in for years, using pen and ink and Magic Marker...."—June 14, 2014 by Joan Baum
