Congratulations 2016 Hudson River Fellows!

Crawford Notch by Thomas Cole, 1839

Twenty painters have been selected to attend this summer's Hudson River Fellowship in Jackson, New Hampshire! Fellows will bunk in one of two ski chalets in the foothills of the White Mountains on the edge of Jackson. They will paint from sunrise to sunset undaunted by ticks, bears and sudden rains. Fellows gather for lectures, critiques and demos by visiting artists.

The fellowship is uninstructed. Fellows shape their own days exploring the landscapes that were also painted by 19th century artists like Thomas Cole, Albert Bierstadt, Benjamin Champney, Sandford Gifford, Jasper Cropsey and Winslow Homer. Jackson residents and Senior Fellows Erik Koeppel and Lauren Sansaricq along with Leslie and Warren Schomacher who run the Jackson Historical Society are great hosts and guides, acquainting the visiting painters with the local scenery.
