Hubert Shuptrine Bridge To The City

Chattanooga, TN – Alan Shuptrine Fine Art is pleased to announce Hubert Shuptrine ~ Early Works, an exhibition of early watercolors, oils, and acrylics by the late Hubert Shuptrine, the nationally renowned American realist.  The Chattanooga native is well known for his two books: Jericho: The South Beheld (Oxmoor House, 1974), which he created with the late poet, James Dickey; and Home to Jericho (Oxmoor House, 1984).  Both books comprised collections of his most beloved watercolors that focused on the vanishing South. On exhibition until 3 May, 2007.

Born in 1936, Hubert Shuptrine was a full-time artist for nearly 50 years. Honored throughout his life with numerous museum exhibitions and art awards, Hubert Shuptrine was a recipient of the 2005 Governor’s Award for Distinguished Artist.  He was also recently honored posthumously with an exhibition at the Morris Museum of Art in Augusta, Georgia.  Entitled Realizations: The Art of Hubert Shuptrine, this major exhibit celebrated the artist’s works of Native American subjects.

HubertShuptrineTheMatador.jpg When asked, audiences naturally think of Hubert Shuptrine’s works to be those of realistic watercolors.  Very few people know that he began his career as an abstract painter.  He experimented greatly with the different mediums of oil, acrylic, gouache, and casein before making watercolor his permanent medium in the early 1970s.  Hubert Shuptrine ~ Early Works will focus on paintings completed before 1972, and will include a range of styles from abstract expressionism to cubism and realism.

Alan Shuptrine Fine Art will exhibit these works at the Broad Street gallery through May 3rd, 2007.
