ARTIST STUDIO & GALLERY SPACE : CONVEY/er/or and Artist Suprina's Studio
The Sum of Us, Suprina
ABOUT THE ARTIST
Suprina studied sculpture at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia but gained the bulk of her knowledge of her craft from working in the field of promotional, prop making. Her clients included Annie Leibovitz, Apple, Bloomingdales, and the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. After 9/11, having lived in the neighborhood at the time, Suprina decided she would focus solely on her own artworks, which discuss environmental, social, and political issues. She moved to the Hudson Valley in 2017 and has received numerous grants and awards, including the Dutchess County Executive’s Arts Awards for Art in Public Places in 2021, and Individual and Community Decentralization grants for 2021. Currently, Suprina’s public sculpture the DNA Totem is on view on the Walkway Over the Hudson, Poughkeepsie, NY.
ABOUT THE GALLERY
