BIOGRAPHY

Lori Zummo Biography

American, b. 1962

Contemporary artist Lori Zummo paints in a style evocative of the American Barbizon School. She received her BFA from Syracuse University in 1984. After receiving the first place award in oil painting from the New York chapter of the National Society of Arts and Letters in 1986, Ms. Zummo was granted a full scholarship to the New York Academy of Art's Master Class program. The NYAA's extensive study program, which is based on the Italian Renaissance and the French Academy training tradition, further enhanced her technique and style.

In 1988, Ms. Zummo was highlighted as one of three “Emerging Artists” at the Hurlbutt Gallery of Greenwich, CT. Since then, her work has been shown at galleries in New York, Boston, Chicago, Washington D.C., Cincinnati, Southampton NY, Sarasota FL, Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket, MA. Her work has been collected extensively by patrons all over the country.

For the past twenty years, Lori Zummo has been one of Nantucket's most popular and best-selling artists.
