Jackson, NH Museum in the American Art Review

I was so happy to see the new Museum of White Mountain Art at Jackson as the subject of an article in the American Art Review this month. The article covers their current exhibition On the Road to Jackson, which includes works by Asher B. Durand, Sanford Gifford, Benjamin Champney, Frank H. Shapleigh, and many more first rate artists of the White Mountians. The museum is currently planning an exhibition in conjunction with the Bethel Historical Society, that will include the work of Lauren Sansaricq and I beside the historic masters of the region.

Here's the article:

Many of the locations depicted in the article are views that can still be found today. Here are some paintings and sketches I've done of scenes depicted in the article:
