Artist Alan Shuptrine will be launching his 2nd Kickstarter campaign, funding The Serpentine Chain Collection project. The project has gained momentum and will debut in an exhibition at the Tennessee State Museum in Nashville, TN and the Morris Museum of Art in Augusta, GA in 2017. Alan is halfway to his goal of 60 paintings, and has traveled the majority of the states in the Southern Region. As he looks to the final Northeastern leg of the trail, he is reaching out to art lovers for support in reaching his goal. Click here to read more about Alan's journey in the October 2015 issue of Nashville Arts Magazine. The project has also been covered in a recent article by Nooga.com.
These beautiful watercolors will focus on the land, the people, and the traditions that are alive and well in the Appalachian Mountains. Alan’s goal is to preserve this culture, as well reiterate the importance of the conservancy of this beautiful land. These paintings will appear as images on the pages of Alan’s first coffee table book, The Serpentine Chain, which will be written by New York Times best-selling author, Sharyn McCrumb. This is truly a lifelong dream coming to fruition!
