Remember it was through the eyes of the artists of the White Mountain School of Art that the world first became aware of the beauty of Jackson. Many of the artists of the 19th century White Mountain School came to Jackson to view the lovely scenes we live with every day from pastoral farms to the grandeur of Mt. Washington. In 1923, Wallace Nutting, author of "New Hampshire Beautiful" put it well when he said "People of Jackson can claim as their advantage to be in the immediate view of the best of the White Mountains. Jackson undoubtedly stands high among the more desirable mountain towns as a goal of visitation."
This holds true today. Works of art from local and visiting artists who convey their vision of this spectacular area on canvas continue to be popular purchases.
This event can be enjoyed by singles, couples and the entire family... with something special for each.
