Angling Art: New Works by Galen Mercer

“Rib Rock,” Oil on Canvas 2015
All works by Galen Mercer

Artist Galen Mercer lives along the Battenkill in West Arlington, Vermont. Canadian by birth, he’s the grandson of two painters and the son of another, so it’s kind of in his blood. (He’s also married to Orvis’s own Jaimie Mercer, the subject of one of my favorite fly-fishing photos.) This piece is from a collection of new work being showing in the Catskills. The exhibit is entirely composed of Catskill river scenes.

“Catskills in Sunlight and Shadow,” Oil on Canvas 2015
