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.

A stop-motion animator with credits including The Penny Cartoon for Pee-Wee’s Playhouse and Wallace & Gromit for Aardman Animations, Elizabeth Buttler found that her work in fabricating, sculpture, and animating informed and improved her drawing and painting.  According to the artist, “In the past few years, my animation background started to seep into my paintings.  As an animator, I spent years drawing sequences of movement.  It was always magical to watch them come to life.  In my sequential paintings, I just do a few frames of movement, enough for the viewer to enjoy looking back and forth between the paintings to catch a glimpse of a moment in time.”
