Opening of Art Exhibition & Sale – “The White Mountains: Alps of New England”
May 29, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm
Coinciding with the 100th anniversary of the White Mountain National Forest, this art exhibition & sale features award-winning landscapes by nationally-recognized plein air artists Lauren Sansaricq of East Jewett, New York, and Erik Koeppel of Jackson, New Hampshire.
During the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, numerous artists—including many from the Hudson River School—captured the awe-inspiring summits and verdant glens in the White Mountain region of northern New Hampshire and western Maine. Today, Erik Koeppel and Lauren Sansaricq create masterful works in the Hudson River style based on their love for the expressive potentials of traditional representation. Their extraordinary paintings recapture the lost techniques of the Hudson River School painters, whose works were characterized by a sense of air, dramatic light, distance, and luminosity.
The White Mountain paintings in this exhibition will be available for purchase over the duration of the show, with a portion of each sale helping to support our public programming.
