Two Exhibitions Opening at the Same Time

I believe this is a career first for me. I have two exhibitions opening at almost the exact same time.

 Recovering the American Sublime with Lauren Sansaricq, as on the poster below...


...And also the Guild of Boston Artist's Annual Members Juried Exhibition which will open May 6, 3-5pm. If only Star Trek style transporters could be invented I would love to attend a little of both.

Lauren and I will be attending the Fryeburg reception.

Here's the painting that I'm submitting for the Boston Guild show...

Erik Koeppel "Sunset at Olana" 30 x 48 inches. Oil on canvas.
If you can't make one, maybe the other!

 I'll be posting more on Recovering the American Sublime and the paintings that will be available soon. If you're a collector and would like to preview the works that will be available for sale, please feel free to email Erik@ErikKoeppel.com

This painting was commissioned by President Dennis J. Murray for permanent display in the executive boardroom at Marist College. This is one of my most important works to date; I consider this epic painting a personal masterpiece. It is paramount in my efforts to capture the sublime.

Plein Air Workshop in Louisiana


Erik Koeppel "Sunset from Olana" 30 x 48 in., Oil on canvas

I'll be teaching a Workshop in Louisiana in March.  Prior to the workshop I'll be the judging the Shadows-on-the-Teche Plein Air Competition at the same location. Learn about the competition at this link: http://www.shadowsontheteche.org/plein-air-competition, and the workshop information is below:

Erik Koeppel 3Day Plein Air Oil Painting Workshop: 
Shadows-on-the-Teche, New Iberia, Louisiana
March 18th-20th
Saturday through Monday 9:30 to 3:30 pm
Limited to 15 students.
 Cost $475.00

Erik Koeppel is a traditional New England based landscape painter who has become a leader in the revival of the techniques and philosophy of the Hudson River School. Regardless of your level of experience, the goal of this workshop will be to provide you with a thorough introduction to traditional landscape painting.


We will attempt to place ourselves in the mindset of the great Landscape Painters of the past. Students will discover a deeper understanding of how these old masters approached plein-air painting, how they composed the complexity of nature before them, and how they used a layered approach to greater capture qualities of space and form in the landscape. The three days will be intensive learning, including a demo daily, and a lot of paint time practicing techniques learned.


To register for this workshop, please fill out the Registration Form below and submit via e-mail or mail. A deposit of $225 is required to reserve your space. You can mail a check payable to Shadows-on-the-Teche, to The Shadows, 317 East Main Street, New Iberia, LA 70560; or call Pat Kahle at 337.369.6446 to make payment via VISA or Master Card.
