Exciting news at Shuptrine’s! Alan is currently working on his new collection, titled The Serpentine Chain Collection . 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. The Serpentine Chain Collection, will open June 8, 2017 at The Tennessee State Museum in Nashville, Tennessee. It will then travel to The Morris Museum of Art in Augusta, Georgia . Afterwards, the exhibition will travel northward to other museums, historical sites, colleges, and universities. We are thrilled to receive such enthusiastic recognition from these museums, and look forward to solidifying other venues along the way. 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! We invite you to visit our Serpentine Chain Page which provides a detailed description, as well as a video highlighting the thought process behind the title “The Serpentine Chain”.
