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.

The David M. Hunt Library will host an exhibition of colored pencil and pastel artworks by Marsha Altemus and assemblage and painting by Roger McKee from January 14 through March 11.

Artworks from the exhibition are for sale and can be reserved through the online gallery below.  A portion of all sales benefit the Hunt Library.

Falls Village resident Marsha Altemus took her hand to pastel and colored pencil after retiring from a 25-year career in the custom hand-weaving business.  After dabbling in oil and acrylic painting, she fell in love with creating colored pencil still life drawings after discovering the amazing photorealistic effects she was achieving with this under-appreciated medium.  Though she continues to occasionally work in pencil, Marsha found she was equally adept in creating detailed still life and landscape paintings in pastels.  Self-taught and only five years into creating works of advanced technical skill, Marsha says that the process of making art is a welcome non-stressful challenge that has brought her new-found appreciation and encouragement.

Roger McKee’s art ranges from intaglio printmaking and monotypes to artist’s books and assemblage pieces with an emphasis on the natural world.  His work in acrylics and assemblage, including large shadow box compositions of fish, skulls, and topographic representations, engage a variety of objects ranging from arrows and maps to wood core samples and twigs, reflecting his connection to the natural world and the great deal of time he spends out-of-doors.  Roger McKee was educated at Wesleyan University, Pratt Institute, and MIT, and is an art instructor of drawing, printmaking, woodworking and boatbuilding at Salisbury School where he is also an alumnus and former art department chair.
