This winter I applied for one of the solo show spots in the Yester House at Southern Vermont Arts Center. I was so excited to hear that they wanted me to be one of their artists showing this season. Actually I was beyond excited, I may have jumped up and down a bit.
I am so excited to have my work showing at the Vermont Institute of Natural Science (VINS) in Quechee, VT. I have always been an admirer of the work they do there. They are known for their rehabilitation of birds who have been injured, so that they can be released back into their natural habitat. The birds that have injuries that prevent them from being released are cared for by loving employees.
Last Friday at the White River Craft Center, in Randolph, VT I had my first solo gallery show! My 44 original watercolor and pen paintings will be hanging until February 8th.
I am Amy Hook-Therrien, a native Vermont artist living in Windsor, Vermont. I went to The University of Maine in Orono, where I received a BFA focusing in painting & sculpture. I met my husband in a painting class, and after we graduated I dragged him back to Vermont with me. We have two dogs Goose & Possum, they are both Australian Shepherd mix rescues. We also have two bunnies named Sprout & Sage.
