trina_bakerTrina Baker, assistant director of the Becker College Equestrian Center and assistant coach of Becker’s riding team, had her work recently featured in an art exhibit titled “Absence of Color” at Gallery Seven in Maynard, Massachusetts. The exhibit emphasized the meaning that can be gained from black-and-white artwork. Baker, who was one of four artists included in the exhibit, submitted a piece called “Gus Jumps,” a charcoal image drawn from Baker’s memories of horse jumping.

According to the exhibit description, in Baker’s drawings the hand is ever-present. “She creates dark mass and a light airiness out of long sweeping lines and strokes of charcoal … There is a depth to her work that transcends the subject.”

The “Absence of Color” exhibit was reviewed in the July/August 2014 issue of Artscope, which said Baker’s piece made an impact from across the room.
