See the Hudson River Fellows Art Exhibit in Jackson, NH

For the third summer, 20 landscape artists have been selected as Hudson River Fellows to spend three weeks in Jackson painting en plein air in the White Mountains. Former Fellows and Jackson residents Erik Koeppel and Lauren Sansariq are instructors. The artists are selected each year by the Grand Central Academy of Art in New York City. The Jackson Historical Society helps implement the program, which is supported by a grant from the Morris and Alma Schapiro Fund.
