Hubert Shuptrine (1936–)

Gallery Index

His paintings have been recognized in more than two dozen regional and national art shows and competitions, including the Exhibition of the Delgado, the Southeastern Exhibition of Paintings (first prize), the Butler Institute of American Arts, the Columbia Painting Biennial, the National Religion in Art Exhibition (awarded), the Painting of the Year Exhibition (awarded), and the Festival of Arts Southeastern Exhibition (first prize). He has been described as "A watercolorist in the new American Realist tradition," and "Focused and concentrated, his vision of life into honest statements of realism." In 1972, Oxmoor House and its magazine affiliate, Southern Living, engaged Shuptrine to capture the South through his sensitive and perceptive paintings. For two full years he traveled more than fifteen thousand miles discovering and portraying the vanishing mountain life, and the backroads of the old counties. In 1974, he teamed with poet Jame Dickey to do the book Jericho, the South Beheld.
