Art Talk: Sat., June 17th, 2017 Closing of Recovering the American Sublime


Local artists Erik Koeppel and Lauren Sansaricq will walk visitors through their current exhibition, Recovering the American Sublime, sharing the stories behind the artwork. 19th Century American landscape painting methods and theory will be discussed, in addition to the artists' contemporary response to that movement, and its relevance today. 

In this exhibition, the paintings of Koeppel and Sansaricq are displayed in conjunction with 19th Century landscape paintings of the White Mountains. The historic paintings are lent from the collections of the Jackson Historical Society and Bethel Historical Society, as a promised gift of Randall H. Bennett.

The Pace Galleries of Art is open to the public on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10 am to 1 pm following the Fryeburg Academy academic calendar. Please call the box office at 207-935-9232, or email boxoffice@fryeburgacademy.org to schedule a visit at a different time. 

This will be the last chance to see our Recovering the American Sublime exhibition.
