Twenty one painters have been selected to study and paint the landscapes of the White  Mountains of New Hampshire for GCA's 2015 Hudson River Fellowship. During this three-week fellowship starting July 13th,  artists will work daily from dawn until dusk to produce field studies (pencil drawings, tonal studies, plein air sketches) that will inform their larger studio paintings later. Lectures will cover history, area geology and the methods and materials of 19th Century landscape painters who flocked to this region.

Fellows will be living communally in one of two ski chalets with beautiful views. Several bunks will be reserved for Senior Fellows or instructors who are always invited to drop in and paint. Past year's visitors include Jacob Collins, Ted Minoff, Travis Schlaht, Tom Kegler, Ken Salaz, Rick Piloco, Nick Hiltner,  and James Gurney along with Eric Koeppel and Lauren Sansaricq (who live in Jackson, NH and are the Fellowship's mountain hosts!)
