Tom Malloy (1912-2008) was a leader in Trenton’s artistic community and was named Trenton’s artist laureate in 2001. A watercolorist, Malloy depicted the City of Trenton in his works, including both views of well-known sites like the Battle Monument and Ellarslie and urban streetscapes. Malloy was born in Dillon, S.C., and moved to Trenton in 1923, where he was educated in the Trenton Public Schools. He began painting in the mid-1950s and established a studio in his home in the 1970s. In addition to his work as an artist, Malloy was a founding member of the Trenton Artist’s Workshop and a leader in establishing the Trenton City Museum at Ellarslie. Malloy utilized this building on Garfield Avenue as his studio from around 1970 to 2002.
