ARTIST OF THE MONTH

Artist of the Month - September 2015

Arthur Wallace

 

I have lived in Lebanon for a little over 35 years, yet I still feel like a newbie in the town. Prior to living in Lebanon I was born and raised down the road in Norwich. My wife, Linda and I have 2 grown adult children who live in CT. I spent most of my working career in computers at various companies, retiring in 2013.  I had always had an interest in art and photography, but did not do much with it until I started working as an IT manager at the former Mystic Color Lab in Mystic CT. Dealing with the systems, and the processes of film development re-energized my feelings for photography. I went out and bought myself a new 35mm camera and started taking pictures. As a novice I started displaying my photographs at various art shows in the area and found that I have something to offer. With the advent of digital cameras and Photoshop I am excited in being able to work with the photos and doing more with them.  To me it is not so much the subject matter as it is the presentation and framing that makes the photograph enjoyable to look at.  Iím really thankful for organizations like Jonathan Trumbull Library that give amateur, and professional artists an opportunity to display their crafts.
