Maryanne Rupp of Killingworth, who painted "Barn on Randolph Road" on this week's cover, has won numerous local art awards and has displayed her work throughout New England. Her work in oil and in pastel will be on display at Liberty Bank in Clinton throughout the month of June. Rupp is a member of the Connecticut Pastel Society, the Lyme Art Association, the Madison Art Society and the Clinton Art Society. She has studied pastel with Joanne Ballinger at the Lyme Art Association for the past seven years, and has taken numerous workshops with local artists such as Karen Winslow, Diane Aeshliman, Jack Broderick, Hollis Dunlap and Lou Bonamarte. She believes that producing art is the artist's ability to find beauty in the most ordinary objects.
