Traditional Landscape Painting Using a Layered Approach

A supply list will be emailed to registered students.

Jackson Historical Society, Museum of White Mountain Art Show

Friday, October 17th, the Jackson Historical Society held a reception  to celebrate their 12th annual art sale of White Mountain paintings and to open their new exhibition, “White Mountain Scenes: different Views different Artists, with Historic Maps."

In the sale there was a selection of sixty-five White Mountain scenes by 19th century artists and thirty-one by the best contemporary artists painting in the White Mountains. 


The new exhibition features paintings of favorite scenes - Mt Washington, Chocorua, Kearsarge, Jackson Falls, the Old Man, the Moats and Eagle Cliff - as interpreted by various artists. In addition, there is an excellent collection of 19th century maps loaned by collector David Carchedi and some from the Society's collection. A catalogue of the maps in the exhibition with essays by historians Peter Crane and David Carchedi is available for purchase.


Lauren Sansaricq and I have paintings in the Museum show from the Historical Society's collection, and also had a good showing in the Sale downstairs. Here are some of my photos from the reception in no particular order:

"The Glory of the White Mountains" Art Reception and Exhibit

Date/Time

Oct 5, 2014
01:00 PM

Description

 New Hampshire Antique Co-op is pleased to present The Glory of the White Mountains: The Landscapes of Lauren Sansaricq and Erik Koeppel, an exhibit and sale of paintings by contemporary New England landscape artists Erik Koeppel and Lauren Sansaricq. 
An opening reception will be held on Sunday, October 5, from 1 - 3 p.m. in the Upstairs Gallery at New Hampshire Antique Co-op. Enjoy wine, cheese and conversation with the artists while you view their original works and discuss their techniques. 
Koeppel and Sansaricq are nationally recognized contemporary en plain air artists — painting outdoors and onsite — who have created masterful paintings in the style of the Hudson River School movement of the mid-1800s. Believing in the expressive potential of traditional representation, both artists have striven to master the look and feel of the Hudson River School’s painters. These works, most notably created by Thomas Cole (1801-1848), possess a distinctive sense of air, dramatic light and distance.
This exhibit and sale of Koeppel and Sansaricq's works will be on view in the Tower Gallery at New Hampshire Antique Co-op through January 31, 2015.
