Chief John Ross Chapter, NSDAR nominated Lupina Poi Haney as a candidate for the American Heritage Women in the Arts Recognition Award. This national award honors women who have exhibited excellence in their chosen genre and is designed to recognize their outstanding achievements in the non-performing arts. Susan Whelchel, Chief John Ross Chapter Second Vice Regent, was excited to present this prestigious national award to Lupina Poi Haney. The award was presented during the February Chapter meeting.

Ms. Haney is a local Chattanooga artist who grew up in New York City and is of Chinese American heritage, so she was influenced at a very young age by both Asian and Appalachian art. She is intrigued by the simplicity of shape, composition, and color, and often takes inspiration for her paintings, mixed media pieces, and assemblages from photos she has taken or interesting found objects. Some of her work can be seen at her website www.artbylupina.com.

She is a member of several small art groups and organizations, and her work has been shown in galleries and juried events locally, regionally, and nationally. Her work is in private and corporate collections all over the United States and, most recently, the Bahamas.

Chief John Ross Chapter in Chattanooga has grown steadily in membership since its founding over 100 years ago and is proud now to be the third largest chapter in the state of Tennessee with 188 members. Any female 18 years or older who can prove that a Revolutionary War patriot is in her direct line is eligible and welcome to join the Chief John Ross Chapter, NSDAR
