Honoring the Life and Work of Lillian Lovitt
For the past nine years, the Hunt ArtWall’s annual 12X12 exhibitions showcased over 100 artworks all measuring 12×12 inches by more than 70 artists and priced at $100 each. In normal times, a crowd of more than 120 guests would await the “unveiling” of the exhibition and vie for their favorite pieces.
Faced with modifying 12X12 during the pandemic, the Hunt ArtWall committee invited a “cohort” grouping of twelve artists who live in Falls Village and have been active participants in Hunt Library events. This year’s version of the exhibition has been titled “Twelve by Twelve” and will feature one work by each invitee, with dimensions and prices according to each artist’s discretion.
Encompassing painters, photographers, and sculptors, the twelve artists are Marsha Altemus, John Atchley, Robert Cronin, Sergei Fedorjaczenko, John Hodgson, Jason Bailer Losh, Louise March, Sarah Martinez, Ken Musselman, Gayle Shanley, Jude Streng, and Kathy Wismar.
This exhibition is dedicated to Lillian Lovitt, a sculptor who for years has generously shared her skills and insight with the Hunt Library ArtWall and with the Falls Village-Canaan Historical Society. Lillian died earlier this year, and one of her works will be on display as a memorial tribute to her life and art.
