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.

Karen Scheffler is a stained glass artist residing in Montgomery, VT. She believes that the natural world is a window through which God has shown part of Himself to man; through which thinking, man may see His unseen power and divineness. Working with glass and metals gets her hands dirty: a nice change from an intense love of reading and curiosity about life. She has always enjoyed working with her hands. Initially, Karen would use stones, mud, twigs, and sand; wax became a medium of choice that gave birth to metal work. "I loved to polish; hands get very dirty doing that." But what particularly thrilled Karen was seeing a tarnished, rough thing become a shining, revealed, beautiful thing. "Working with glass is like that for me. When it is right, something splendid emerges and with light, it comes alive."
Bobby Anderson was born in Boston, Massachusetts, and came to Vermont 35 years ago. As a youth, Bobby spent his summers on Cape Cod; his love of nature and his experiences on the Cape have inspired many of his paintings. After leaving Massachusetts, Bobby lived in Montgomery, VT for 30 years where he developed his skills as an artist. Bobby's early works -in pen and ink- included commissions and producing the Montgomery annual calendar. An appreciation for the effects of mood and atmosphere that could be achieved with watercolors moved Bobby to become a self-taught water-colorist, the medium that he now works in exclusively. Mr. Anderson, delighted to be a member of the Artists In Residence Co-op, now lives in Enosburg, VT.
