The Mill at Lebanon’s Artist Alley kicked off its latest exhibit with an art and wine crawl Thursday.

The exhibit features work from Watertown artist William Hunter, whose buyers include celebrities such as Barbara Streisand and Harvey Keitel.

Hunter, a Lebanon native and MTSU graduate, moved to Manhattan after college.

He continued to live and work in Manhattan for 33 years before moving back to Wilson County and making his home in Watertown.

Paintings on exhibit include an array of styles and subjects, ranging from ’60s-infused portraits of the artist and his wife to slightly impressionistic portraits of Civil War era families.

“These [pieces on display] cover 50 years,” said Hunter, explaining the multitude of styles.

Hunter continues to paint both simply for art’s sake and for commissioned portraits.

Hunter’s exhibit at The Mill’s Artist Alley will be on display through July 20.
