Fashion Design Sketches by Nancy B. Hamon in Dallas
The exhibition in the library’s Hawn Gallery features fashion design sketches, circa 1933-42, by Nancy B. Hamon (1918-2011) from the Jake and Nancy Hamon Papers, housed in Jerry Bywaters Special Collections in the Hamon Arts Library, which is celebrating its 25th anniversary. Mrs. Hamon was a legendary philanthropist and arts supporter, and Dallas benefited greatly from her generosity. Her fashion design sketches were completed while she was in her late teens and early twenties. The vibrant works were created using tempera, watercolor, pen and pencil on paper. These wonderfully executed sketches demonstrate Mrs. Hamon’s remarkable talent and lifelong passion for the arts and fashion. For more information call 214.768.1860.
