West Branch Gallery is pleased to announce the opening of two solo-shows for the month of May as part of our ongoing monthly exhibition series, Upstairs at West Branch.
This show will feature new work by painter, Aline Ordman as well as works on paper by print maker, Sheryl Trainor.

Sheryl Trainor studied painting at the Massachusetts College of Art and was introduced to printmaking after moving to Vermont in 1995. Trainor considers herself the keeper of her family’s memories, saving photographs, magazines, scraps of papers, old school books and scribbles from children who long ago became adults. From these images she creates stories that inform her artwork. Using silhouetted figures against patterned backgrounds, Trainor references the types of iconic moments we associate with family, childhood, and memories of times gone by.

Aline Ordman’s landscapes, figures and still lives use the particular qualities of light and color to illuminate the human and natural worlds; to capture the beauty that radiates from a particular passing moment. A flicker of light on a shoulder, a splash of
sun on a summer hat, flakes of light in a stand of maples, a shower of
late afternoon sun on a hillside – these are the moments Ordman finds herself attracted to. She describes her goal as an artist as finding those times and places where beauty is
not only evident, but startling and suddenly present.

Join  us for a first Saturday preview, May 4th from 4-6pm 
to share a glass of wine with the artists and see their newest work.
