Alan Shuptrine: Appalachian Watercolors of the Serpentine Chain
January 18, 2018 - April 15, 2018
This exhibition featured sixty beautiful, highly detailed watercolors by artist Alan Shuptrine. It celebrated the historical and cultural connections between the land and people of the Appalachian Mountains and those of the British Isles—Celtic traditions brought to America in the eighteenth century that are still present today.
An artist of stunning technical precision, Shuptrine has documented the region’s rich European heritage and captured the spirit of rural mountain life. His work highlights time-honored traditions of the area such as quilting and farming; architectural elements of the region—frame houses, tin-roofed barns, and wooden pasture fences; and stunning, serene landscapes of the Appalachian mountain range.
