Press-Republican — An article highlights Brammer’s experience as a double major in English and art at Amherst, and their recent solo exhibition at the Upper Jay Art Center in their hometown of Upper Jay, N.Y.
“It was exciting to be there because of the relationships I was able to form with professors because of the small class size. The community was small enough that it had a real community feel,” Brammer says of their time at Amherst. “I ended up working with wet medium most of the time, watercolor and ink. But I had the opportunity to take classes in a bunch of different disciplines, so I took printmaking and sculpture.” A photo shows Brammer at work on their Spring 2022 senior thesis show.
The article, written by Robin Caudell, mentions Brammer’s linocut series Preserve, included in the recent UJAC show, and an earlier acrylic self-portrait the artist painted and displayed at the center. “Next,” writes Caudell, “Brammer embarks on a long road trip out west to be present in nature, write, read and create.”
