Elizabeth Shupe

My name is Elizabeth and I’m a visual artist and a writer. I recently graduated from a MFA program in NYC, and while I was there I realized that there has been a lot written about the art scene in NYC, but not a lot of attention paid to the equally brilliant artists working outside of the sprawling metropolis. With this blog I hope to rectify all that. My husband and I are buying an RV and taking a long trip around the country, and on that trip I will be dipping my toes into some local art scenes and discovering the artistic talent that exists far outside of the art hubs of Bushwick and Chelsea. Please join me, and hopefully together we can find some hidden gems!

(Including having another person buy an … Continue reading

Leaving the Big Apple

When my husband and I decided to leave New York after living there for two years, we wondered if we were doing the right thing. New York, after all, is the center for the visual arts in this country, and both my husband and I are pursuing careers in the visual field. “Only a crazy … Continue reading
