If desired, participants are invited to schedule a 30 minute portfolio review with Isupov and/or Ferrin Contemporary’s gallery director, Leslie Ferrin on Sunday afternoon.

Sergei Isupov lives and works in Cummington, Massachusetts with his wife, Kadri, and daughter, Roosi. Working full-time as an artist, he has a long, international resume with works included in numerous public collections and important exhibitions. His work is featured in multiple books, catalogs, and magazines, and also shared via workshops and lectures at museums, universities and art centers. Isupov is known for his highly-detailed narrative, ceramic sculptures, which feature completely illustrated in-the-round- paintings. Isupov continues to explore opposites as themes in his work. Emotional exchanges between men and women allude to romance, an affair, or simply mystery. Our own imaginations are asked to fill in and finish the narrative using personal associations.
