2 art exhibitions highlight beauty of White Mountains

The Associated Press

CONCORD (AP) — White Mountain art is now on display in New Hampshire.

The art dates back to the 18th century and includes landscape paintings by artists Benjamin Champney and Winslow Homer, who were inspired by the state's mountain range. The work they produced helped make the White Mountains a symbol of the American landscape.

The New Hampshire Historical Society, in Concord, on Friday opened a long-running exhibit that features White Mountain art from its collection.

That followed an exhibition at the Currier Museum of Art, in Manchester, that opened Oct. 1 and runs through Jan. 16. It focuses on art inspired by Mount Washington, the highest peak in the Northeast and part of the White Mountains.
