HENRY "HANK" TRASK-REILLY
Henry Trask-Reilly was born and grew up in the Boston area. He worked for many years in the real estate business before settling in Montgomery Center, VT with his wife, Lena. He has fallen in love with the rural beauty of Montgomery and it's people. Hank has been painting since the late 1970's. He studied briefly at the Art Student League in Marblehead, Massachusetts. He is essentially a self-taught painter working primarily in oil on masonite.
Hank enjoys capturing the energy of the seasons in both rural and urban landscapes. Since moving to Vermont, Hank has painted almost exclusively the beautiful landscapes of Northern Vermont primarily in and around his home in Montgomery.
Hank won first prize in oil at the Annual juried show of 2003 put on by the Northern Vermont Artist Association. Currently, among other places, his work may be seen in galleries in the Jeffersonville area and at the Jay Hotel and Jay Peak ski area.
