Award-winning Artists Exhibit Landscape Paintings at Conservation Center

February 18, 2013

Richard Whitney and Sandy Sherman will exhibit their landscape and still-life paintings at the Society for the Protection of N.H. Forests headquarters at the Conservation Center in Concord through April 28.

Whitney, also known for his official portraits of New Hampshire political leaders such as former Gov. and U.S. Sen. Judd Gregg and former Gov. John H. Sununu, was recently honored by Sotheby’s of New York as a living master of the classical tradition. His paintings hang in more than 600 public and private collections, and he has won more than 40 national and regional awards.

Sandy Sherman is an award-winning artist known for her still-life paintings. 

Whitney will present “Painting New England Landscapes, Past and Present,” an illustrated talk on landscape painting, at a reception March 14 from 5:30 to 7 p.m. in the Conservation Center’s conference room. The snow date for the talk is March 15. Whitney’s book, Painting the Visual Impression, will be available at the event, with a portion of the proceeds from sales of both the book and paintings benefitting the Forest Society.

Whitney and Sherman live and work from the Studio at Crescent Pond in Stoddard.

The exhibit will be open for viewing Monday through Friday from 9 am to 5 pm in the Conservation Center Conference Room, located at 54 Portsmouth St. in Concord. The Conference Room is used for meetings, so please call (603)224-9945 before visiting.
