Hudson River Fellowship and Workshops in the White Mountains 2015

We had another group of 20 some-odd Hudson River Fellows and workshop students visiting Jackson on a grant obtained through the Jackson Historical Society, and the Grand Central Atelier in NYC. Lauren Sansaricq and I have been hosting and instructing this group in the White Mountains for four years now, and it's a pleasure every year to see everyone's beautiful White Mountain paintings, and to have artists all over the Mt. Washington Valley. The Hudson River Fellows had their final exhibition last Friday, and were successful as always, in selling numerous paintings.

Here are some photos of the group around the area:

I took a group of hiking painters up to Mt. Willard to paint.


Here are some studio shots of the work I did with the fellowship and workshops. I wish I had photos of everyone's work, but unfortunately forgot my camera at the final exhibition. you can find some photos of fellows work at this link: http://grandcentralatelier.blogspot.com/2015/07/2015-hudson-river-fellowship-week-two.html
