Gillian Tyler reflects in her art a warm, generous personality.   As a student of Leonard Baskin, and a Smith College graduate, she initially specialized in wood engravings.  After further studies in Brooklyn and a Fulbright Fellowship in Germany, she moved to the Upper Valley where she concentrated on illustrating and hand-printing limited edition books.  Watercolor then became her gentle passion; maritime scenes, “the hunt”, farm animals, and portraiture became her wide-ranging specialty.  Currently working in oil-on-canvas in a studio on Lake Fairlee, she focuses on lake and Middlebrook scenes and the occasional hot-air balloon.

Her current exhibit is a joyous retrospective of more than a half-century’s work.

The show will be on display in the Betty Grant Art Gallery from January 4 to March 31, 2017 during regular library hours.
