Branching Out – Solo Show

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.

Proof File

The paintings that are up range from an old barn door, dried koas corn, birch trees and dead beech leaves. The sizes range from 4″x4″ up to 24″x30″ larger pieces. It took me a while to get all my pieces painted and together. My husband Alex made the oak and maple frames to fit my watercolors mounted on wood panels. Which made them look awesome!

I am so excited that people are interested in my work, and love when people like it. The weather was horrible the night of the opening reception, but still a lot of people came out to see my show. Thanks so everyone who came out to support me and my dream, I really appreciate it!

A Little Bit About Me!

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.

I have always loved art, and I was always creating something. It didn’t matter what the subject or medium was, I just had to make something, anything. Right now I focus on primarily on watercolor paintings, with pen work. I am a bit obsessed with birch trees, and dead beech leaves. I love going to walks or hikes and finding something new to paint.

I have been a juried member of the Vermont Abenaki Artists Association since 2014. I have recently just become a member of the Vermont Hand Crafters this year. I am currently in a few galleries, Creative Space Gallery in Vergennes, Artisans’ Gallery in Waitsfield, Rock Art Brewery in Morrisville and Spirit Wind Gallery in New Mexico. I am always looking for new galleries to show my work. Basically I am trying to get my name out there.

So there is a little bit about me!
