Alan Shuptrine: Appalachian Watercolors of the Serpentine Chain
January 18 – April 15, 2018
Opening January 18, this exhibition features sixty beautiful, highly detailed watercolors by artist Alan Shuptrine. It celebrates 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.

Book Signing and Watercolor demonstration with artist Alan Shuptrine at Starline books.
In nearly 44 years, not since Jericho: The South Beheld (Oxmoor House, 1974), has there been a truly thematic and beautiful collaboration of artist and author. In the same vein, New York Times best-selling author Sharyn McCrumb and watercolorist, Alan Shuptrine, have created an Artist Catalogue titled: Alan Shuptrine: Appalachian Watercolors of the Serpentine Chain. They share a passion about their subject—the land and people of the Appalachian Mountains. The catalogue celebrates the connections between the people living along the Appalachian Mountains with their cultural and historical counterparts in the British Isles. Serving as a monument to the mountain people, this art collection and Artist Catalogue will help preserve their heritage and traditions for future generations.
On Thursday, September 7th, Artist Alan Shuptrine will be on hand for a book signing of the Artist Catalogue and a watercolor demonstration at Star Line Books, located at 1467 Market St Suite 106, 37402. The event will take place from 6:00pm-8:00pm. The catalogue features images of Shuptrine’s watercolor paintings from his museum exhibition, which is currently on display at The Tennessee State Museum, in downtown Nashville. The paintings will be on display until October 1, 2017, and then it will travel in 2018 to: The Morris Museum of Art in Augusta, Georgia; The Huntsville Museum of Art in Huntsville, Alabama; and The Museum Center at 5ive Points in Cleveland, Tennessee.
