Jackson Invitational Snow Sculpting Competition

JACKSON NH –
This Jackson Area Chamber of Commerce event will be held at Black Mountain Ski Area in Jackson and offers skiing and snowboarding options during the competition.

The event begins on Friday January 29th at noon with teams from all over the Northeastern part of the United States. The team will sculpt throughout the weekend and finish at noon on Sunday. Spectators are welcome to view the entire process but welcome to return on Sunday the 31st for the finished products. See first hand how our sculptors take 8 foot high by 4 foot round cylinder of compacted snow and create incredible art frozen in time.

Sculpting pieces usually remain available for viewing for at least a week after the event giving visitors ample time to get coveted photos. Please be aware that weather is a factor and we can not guarantee how long the snow sculptures will remain. The sculptures will be lit at night for an entirely different perspective. We anticipate at least 12 or more teams for 2020 and a spectacular show!  Check back often for more updates as this is our 20th Anniversary of the event and we will be sure to celebrate it with some exciting enhancements.

Bring the kids!

There will be scavenger hunts for the kids, and other exciting things to do. Admission for viewing is free but donations are welcome. Please note that lift tickets at Black Mountain are sold separately. We invite the public to attend the welcome dinner on Saturday evening and the awards banquet on Sunday afternoon… venue to be announced. For updates please check back often.

For more up to the moment details for the upcoming January 2021 event please check back. The venue will be posted by April 1st, 2020!

Jackson Art Studio

JACKSON NH – Outdoors @Jackson Art Studio – With Award winning painter, George Van Hook
Ridge Rd, Jackson NH

In this weekend  portrait painting workshop, students will first start by drawing the head to understand the structure and form. The model will be set up outdoors and we will be combining the natural environment with the portrait and natural light. (outdoor tents will be set up if needed) We will investigate the specifics of individual features. After lunch, participants will paint the head in their chosen medium using a limited palette of primary colors.  The focus of this will be creating a recognizable form.

George will teach in a loose impressionist style through demonstration and individual coaching. On the second day, students will again begin with drawing and creating a limited palette study. After lunch, we will spend the afternoon doing a full color portrait bringing all that we learned into play. This workshop is for those with some familiarity with painting but all levels are welcome and all mediums appropriate including oils, watercolors, pastels and acrylics. Students are required to bring their own supplies. Class size will be kept small for individual attention.

Sat & Sun, April 25 & 26, 9am-4pm,  $295

Acoustic Nuisance Kevin Dolan, Davey Armstrong, and Simon CrawfordJACKSON NH – A night with Acoustic Nuisance is a unique trip through the musical minds of it’s main protagonists: multi-instrumentalist Scots born Davey Armstrong……. fellow Scot and guitar/guitar-synth Folk-Rocker Simon Crawford…. and acoustic guitar and bouzouki playing London-Irishman Kevin Dolan..all ably accented by Becky Armstrong’s fine vocals, for an entertaining blend of acoustic/electric virtuosity and vocal harmony…

Humour is ever present, as is audience participation, and alongside a varied menu of Celtic and Americana, plus their own original tunes and songs, you are likely to be confronted by guitar, tin-whistles, Irish and Scottish Pipes, bouzouki, banjo, harmonica, bass-pedals and synths – and that’s just from Davey(!) …often while singing and playing 2 or 3 at the same time…

Hailing from the British Isles but living right here in the Mount Washington Valley, the band is looking forward to another fun night in the Cold River Radio Show Mini-Series and hoping old friends (and new!) will join them at this pre-Christmas event. Come on out!
