Based out of Jackson Village nestled in New Hampshire's White Mountain National Forest, the Hudson River Fellowship will gather twenty landscape painters for a three-week collaborative fellowship to paint the landscapes that drew over 400 painters in the 19th century. Among these painters were Thomas Cole, Asher B. Durand, George Inness, Sanford Gifford, Jasper Cropsey, Albert Bierstadt and the New Hampshire native credited with founding the White Mountain School, Benjamin Champsey.
The dates of this summer's fellowship are July 13 - August 2. (July 13 and August 2 are travel days. ) The fellowship provides all accepted fellows with full tuition and free housing in one of two snug mountain chalets with gorgeous views. There is no application fee. There is a $100 non-refundable participation fee and a $100 housing deposit to be returned at the end of the fellowship. Fellows are responsible for their own transportation and food.
We are so lucky to have excellent local fellowship hosts! Painters Erik Koeppel and Lauren Sansaricq live and work in Jackson Village along with Warren and Leslie Schomaker of the Jackson Historical Society. Warren and Leslie help us book the lecture venues and gather the fellows for a Meet and Greet Sunset Party and organize an End of Fellowship Exhibition. Leslie also does a great job allaying concerns about black bears & ticks. Erik and Lauren help the fellows get oriented in the landscape, organize rainy day activities, invite Fellows to their studios for various art-related salons, demos and show and tell evenings.
