Memories Worth Painting
 
IMG 0588

Hello....I was raised in a town known as Cedar Mill in the state of Oregon.  My younger years were filled with weekend fly fishing  trips and rock hunting expeditions from the high desert to the high lake and rivers of the Cascade mountains. Many trips were to the Oregon coast, driftwood and agate hunting.  I think we spent more time camping than time at home!
 
As an adult, I was trained as a carpenter by several of my uncles, and my dad.  It seems that any spare time was spent outside doing something in that amazing environment called Oregon. I could tell stories for days......
 
As the years went by, I became more involved in building and design, and after 35 years or more decided I needed to find a safer way to make a living, and I now work at the Brattleboro Food Co-op, mongering fish, as they say.
 
Many of my paintings are taken from my memory of those great places I have visited over the years.  I have a rich family history and study my grandfather who I never knew...  
He was a forest ranger in a mining town called Sumpter, and died in 1914 at the age of  45.  I have gotten to know him through my painting and drawing and some amazing photos from that time. I also love abstract landscape painting and do all I can to incorporate my woodworking skills as part of the creative process.
 
To put it simply, I love the River Gallery School.  My teachers are awesome, with a passion for art in any form...and my fellow artists I thank for your friendships and assistance in helping me grow in my new passion!  I am so happy I discovered this place....  Brian Ireland

April 2020: Orly Hasbani

Opening: TBA

I’ve been a public school teacher for almost twenty years and am currently teaching at Academy School in West Brattleboro. I’m also a mother of two, a cross-country skier, a hiker, a sometime-quilter, musician, and gardener. As a kid, I spent hours drawing. With no formal training, I began playing around with oil painting about ten years ago but I didn’t really start painting in earnest until I joined an adult studio class at River Gallery School five years ago. 

I’m interested in light and shadow and in shapes. I like how the paint feels when applied to a substrate. I would say I’m definitely influenced by the Vermont landscape, particularly in autumn and spring. I love to watch clouds and sunlight. I spend a lot of time admiring the fog from the river valleys obscuring the view to Mt. Wantastiquet. I love the flat salt marshes and the gnarled trees of the coast too.
