Painter Jack Stuppin has made his home in west Sonoma County for more than two decades now, but his name and his work continue to travel afar.
One of his landscape paintings, “Olana Forest,” will be included in the new exhibit, “Paintbox Leaves: Autumnal Inspiration from Cole to Wyeth,” opening Saturday, Sept. 25, at the Hudson River Museum in Yonkers, N.Y.
The museum is famous for its collection of work by the Hudson River School of mid-19th century American landscape painters.
The exhibit, which runs through Jan. 16, features paintings by Thomas Hart Benton, Albert Bierstadt, Thomas Cole, Grandma Moses, Maxfield Parrish, Andrew Wyeth and Jamie Wyeth. The show includes nearly 100 works in all.
“It’s a show of fall landscape paintings,” Stuppin said.
It’s been a good year for the 77-year-old painter. His first-ever one-man show at a New York gallery, “Jack Stuppin: Songs of the Earth,” opened at ACA (American Contemporary Artists) Galleries last March and ran through April.
And his string of successes is not over yet.
“The Crocker Museum in Sacremento opens its new wing to the public Oct. 9,” Stuppin added. “My painting ‘Main Top, Farallon Islands’ will be hanging in the new permanent collection there.”
He likes to say his work is on exhibit “coast to coast.”
