Lambert hangs show at Seabrook bank

Local artist James Lambert will hang a show of his work at The Provident Bank’s Lobby for the Arts in Seabrook this month.

A New York City native, Lambert studied at the Museum of Modern Art School, High School of Music and Art and New York Community College. For more than 30 years, he worked as a graphic designer, art director, advertising manager and photographer.

As he entered retirement, Lambert began exploring his own “artistic vision in graphic constructions that merge textures in three dimensions using shadows, contrasting materials and sparse color in a unified composition.”

“Deco Art” will be on display through June. The public can meet with Lambert on Thursday from 5:30 to 7 p.m. at the branch, 1 Provident Way, Seabrook.
