The title of our next Exhibition is The Jackson 5.
It will feature works of five past and present artists who have resided in Jackson. Three are past: Frank Shapleigh, 1842-1906; Mabel Williams, 1870-1944; David Baker, 1915-1999. Two are current: Erik Koeppel, b.1980; Lauren Sansaricq, b.1990.
The exhibition catalogue will include an essay by Cynthia Melendy on the history of Jackson’s role in White Mountain art over the past 169 years. The first artist to paint in Jackson, William G. Boardman, 1815-1895, came in 1847 and stayed in Joshua Trickey’s farm house. In 1878 George Loring Brown, 1814-1889, described Jackson as the “Switzerland of New England” and encouraged fellow artists to come here ”where the views are magnificent.” Many did come, and we know who they were and where they stayed.
We are asking for help in locating the best possible examples of Shapleigh, Baker, and Williams paintings of White Mountain scenes whose owners will lend them for the exhibition. Please let us know if you can help.
The Annual Sale will be our 14th and will offer 19th century and contemporary White Mountain paintings plus White Mountain scenes in wood marquetry. As in previous sales, pieces may be consigned at no cost under the usual terms where the consignor sets his price and we add our commission to arrive at the sale price. It is never too soon to be thinking of what you may wish to consign.
Both events will open Friday October 14, 2016. The Sale will run to October 21, 2016
The Exhibition will run to July 31, 2017
