Adtran, Jurenko and Thurber Galleries
This exhibition of thematic watercolor paintings by Tennessee artist Alan Shuptrine pays tribute to the land and people found along the Appalachian Trail, and of the distinctive culture that endures from the mountains of Maine to Georgia. The body of work celebrates the connections of Appalachia with its historical and cultural counterpart in the British Isles, highlighting Celtic traditions that were brought to America in the 18th century and are still practiced in the region today. The paintings are ornamented with Shuptrine’s hand-carved frames, many of which are embedded with serpentine, a mineral that is found not only along the entire Appalachian Trail, but also in the regions of the British Isles where the original settlers to Appalachia were born. Organized by Alan Shuptrine and the Huntsville Museum of Art.
Celebrate the opening of this exhibit at the Museum Guild’s Annual Fundraiser!
