The Guild has been a major supporter of the Huntsville Museum of Art for over 50 years and has provided over two and a half million dollars in direct funding from Guild sponsored events such as the Annual Wine Weekend, Leaves of Glass, Folk Fusion and last year’s Southern Blues.
Alan Shuptrine: The Serpentine Chain exhibit will feature watercolor paintings by Tennessee artist Alan Shuptrine that pays tribute to the land and people found along the Appalachian Trail, and to the distinctive culture that endures from the mountains of Maine to Georgia. These amazing paintings celebrate 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 that region today.
