Dana Chapman Tupa

What others are saying about Tupa’s work

“Described as…beautifully crafted…striking in originality…; while at the same time alluringly fantastical; the resulting artwork evokes pleasant recollections from past times in viewers’ memories.”

Excerpts from Gail Wrigley—Quilter

“With an ironic self-referential wink, Chapman’s work is inviting us to consider the meaning of the game of aesthetic pleasure by reminding us that it is no less a game than the recollection of our own experiences.”

Eric Frieberger—Professor of Philosophy

“The childlike sense of wonderment diminishes as we age, but Chapman’s exhibits of humble, beautifully made ceramic sculptures can help us stay in touch with that ground-level magic.”

Douglas MacCash—Art Critic
