Since 2011, the Hunt Library ArtWall has showcased local professional and emerging artists living in the Northwest Connecticut community and throughout the Tri-state area, from Boston to New York City.

The ArtWall provides important income for both the Hunt Library and the exhibiting artists.
A purchase of art is a gift to both.

ArtWall To Go…If you can’t come to us, we will come to you!

Due to these extraordinary times, the ArtWall will not hold exhibition receptions until further notice.  We will, however, continue to exhibit new art that can be seen during library operating hours and on this page.  You can reserve art for purchase with ArtWall To Go and pick it up at the library at your convenience.  When the time is right, we will happily resume receptions and reestablish the ArtWall’s place in the social community.

CURRENT EXHIBITION
SLATE OF THE ART 2020

Lori Barker, UP ON THE ROOF 2020

In mid-March of this year, the Hunt ArtWall was ready to open the group exhibition, Slate of the Art 2020: Knowledge Transfer.  Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the general reception was cancelled.  Before the Library closed to the public however, there was a final ArtWall after-school reception for Lee H. Kellogg students, whose creations were displayed alongside work by many prominent local artists including Danielle Mailer, Ken Musselman, Lori Barker, Robert Cronin, Sarah Martinez, Robert Andrew Parker, and Serena Weld Granbery.

Featuring artworks using original slate roof tiles from the Hunt Library’s 1891 construction, our strong commitment to the work in SLATES means it will remain on display during Library hours through most, if not all, this summer.

Please come and see this important, engaging, and fun exhibition.  If you can’t come to the Library, then enjoy the artworks in the comfort of your home.

As we dip our toes into the virtual waters all around us, join us here for engaging artist features including interviews and demonstrations, short films, poetry readings, performance, and songs.

Our initial offering is a short video by Brooklyn artist Dylan Marcheschi from our 2018 exhibition, KITES!
