"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.

Weds. I'll be on TV, Boston WCVB-TV (ABC channel 5)

I was recently interviewed at my studio, by a reporter from WCVB-TV in Boston.
I don't watch TV very much, but will try to catch the program Wednesday (7/30/14) at 7:30.
My understanding is that it's Channel 5, or UHF digital Channel 20.

Once it's been on the air, I'll try to find a way to post it here. If anyone is able to record it...please share with me!

Thank you!

Hudson River Fellowship and Workshop in Jackson, NH 2014


Erik Koeppel "The Presidential Range in Autumn" 22 x 36 in. Oil on canvas
For the past three years the Hudson River Fellowship, an artist residency through the Grand Central Academy of Art, has been held in Jackson, NH to give young artists working in a traditional manner of landscape painting the opportunity to work outside in a beautiful place and learn from professionals in this field such as myself. Lauren Sansaricq, and I have been teaching alongside the fellowship, as well as Tom Kegler, and Ken Salaz. You may like to learn more about the Hudson River Fellowship on the Grand Central Academy's website: http://grandcentralatelier.org/hudson-river-fellowship.php

We are now two weeks into the fellowship, so here are some pictures of what's happened so far:

Renowned 19th c.White Mt. Art Collector, Andy Mclane and I gave a lecture on his collection.

Andy spoke about the history, and subject matter of the paintings, and I discussed the artistry, and took questions on the techniques and philosophy of the 19th Cent. White Mountain School.


At The Jackson Historical Society we viewed their beautiful Museum collection of White Mountain Art, and discussed their 3D map of the region, to find painting spots.

Pres. of the Jackson Historical Society, Warren Schoemaker, and his wife Leslie kindly hosted the fellows for a sunset dinner at their home (with it's astounding vista view!)
Artists at work in the White Mountains!

Well we're having a great time, and I'll post more photos of paintings created on the Hudson River Fellowship soon.

Here is the next (and probably only) opportunity to study with me in 2014, at a workshop in Washington State:
