I am very excited to announce the following upcoming show. Please read below the press release for more information:
Recovering the American Sublime
New Paintings by Erik Koeppel and Lauren Sansaricq in Historical Context
Pace Galleries of Art at Fryeburg Academy
Opening Reception – May 6, 2017 from 4 to 7 p.m.
The essential thesis of the 19th century American landscape painter was that by deep reflection upon the beauty of nature, one may ease their weary soul of the troubles inherent to a social being thrust into the industrialized world. Today, as humanity travels further from nature into stark modern interiors and cyberspace, artists Lauren Sansaricq and Erik Koeppel believe that a powerful vision of nature is more needed than ever before. They have thus devoted their minds to reviving an art whose intention is to bring the beauty of nature back to the forefront of human consciousness.
In this exhibition, the paintings of Koeppel and Sansaricq are displayed in juxtaposition with 19th century landscape paintings of the White Mountains. As the couple shares a studio in Jackson, NH, White Mountain subjects are prominent among scenes of New England, and even works from their travels west. The historic paintings are on loan from the collections of the Jackson Historical Society, and Bethel Historical Society, as a promised gift of Randall H. Bennett. Many of the contemporary paintings are available for sale.
The Pace Galleries of Art are open Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10 am to 1 pm (or by appointment). Call the box office at 207-935-9232 to schedule a visit.

Regardless of your level of experience our goal as instructors will be to provide you with a thorough introduction to traditional landscape painting. In this workshop we will attempt to place ourselves in the mindset of the great American Landscape Painters of the 19th Century. By painting in locations actually portrayed by the Hudson River School, we will discover a deeper understanding of how these artists approached the challenge of rendering the landscape before them.
Although we encourage painting, students wishing to learn landscape drawing for the entire ten days are welcome. We will address the following: compositional sketching, light and atmosphere in grisaille, outdoor painting in color. (See attached PDF for full course description and Supply List)
With two instructors we will offer extra personal attention to each student’s individual interests and needs.
last years workshop was wonderful to say the least, it seems that the participants not only learned a tremendous amount but also gained memories and friendships that will last a life time. looking forward to this summer, and hope to see you there!
