Albert Bierstadt (1830 - 1902) "Moat Mountain Intervale, New Hampshire.
Moat Mountain is part of the White Mountain range. 

This  Summer is sure to be our best fellowship yet.  Twenty one painters have been selected to study and paint the landscape surrounding the White  Mountains of New Hampshire together for this years' 2014 Hudson River Fellowship. 

During this three-week fellowship starting July 14th,  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. So far, this year's visitors will include Jacob Collins, Ted Minoff, Tom Kegler, Rick Piloco, John Morra, Ken Salaz along with Eric Koeppel and Lauren Sansaricq (who live in Jackson, NH and are the Fellowship's mountain hosts!)

"Mountain View Road" house.

Mt. Washington, the highest peak in the Northeastern U.S., over 6,000 ft high with its erratic climate and winds known to reach more than 200 mph, could not stop Fellows from painting its stunning views.

Don't Miss this Summer's Landscape Painting Workshops

Workshops during the fellowship offer participants an opportunity to paint alongside the Fellows and attend informal gatherings. Participants are encouraged to attend lectures and show with the fellows at the 2014 Fellowship Exhibition hosted by the Jackson Historical Society on the last day of our adventure!

Last year's workshop attendees and fellows watch a painting demo by Instructor Tom Kegler.
Workshop Instructor Tom Kegler offers a "Traditional Landscape Painting" workshop starting July 16.
