Alfred Hutty

Born in Michigan in 1877, Hutty, in his teens won a scholarship to the St. Louis School of Fine Arts. Early in his career as an artist he worked as a stained glass designer in Kansas City and at the Tiffany Glass Studios in New York. He continued to study art at the Art Students League in Woodstock, New York, and became a long standing member of that art community, maintaining a summer studio there until his death in 1954. In 1919, Hutty, in his early forties, moved to Charleston, South Carolina, where he demonstrated his prowess in etching and dry point, winning many awards. He and his wife purchased and restored a house in Charleston at 46 Tradd Street and used it as their home and studio. Taking an active part in the city's cultural affairs, Hutty, along with others, was a founding member of the Charleston Etchers Club and the Charleston Rennaisance. On most of his prints he adopted the snail as an emblem to follow his signature; each plate totaled about 75 prints. Hutty also painted murals for the Footlight Players building, the Fort Sumter Hotel and City Hall.
