About the Artist:
Amy Hook-Therrien grew up in a small Vermont town, where she formed deep connections with the forests surrounding her. She went on to study art at the University of Maine in Orono, where she earned her BFA in painting. After graduating, Amy returned to rural Vermont to immerse herself in nature and painting. She has since been featured in multiple publications as well as gaining representation in galleries throughout the state. She was awarded the 2019 Abenaki Artists Association’s Artist of the Year Award, and is the 2022 Artist in Residence at Marsh-BillingsRockefeller National Historical Park. She is currently working on a series of watercolor paintings portraying the tranquility and fragility found in nature.
About the Exhibit:
In her watercolor paintings Amy takes a look into nature. Birds are a major theme as she tries to evoke a sense of movement and joy in the gallery. Her use of pen and ink gives definition and detail to an otherwise fluid medium. Amy invites you to join her on her journey as she explores and paints the world around her. This exhibit will show Vermont landscapes as well as more playful illustrative works.
