The Mattatuck Museum in Waterbury Connecticut has created an exhibition about the early artists of the Lyme Art Association, called Tea Day 1931: The Art Community at Old Lyme, and we're going to go see it on Friday, August 5th. We have arranged for a guided tour of the exhibition and the museum for LAA members. Meet us there, at 144 West Main Street in Waterbury, at 1:00 pm, or meet at the Lyme Art Association at 12:00 and carpool up.
Here is what they have to say about Tea Day 1931:
"Women in gauzy dresses and wide-brimmed hats, men in blazers and flannels mingled in the annual garden parties hosted by the Lyme Art Association. A 1931 painting, Tea Day, by LAA artist Edward Volkert is the instigation for this exhibition which, like a snapshot in time, will focus on the art of this period in Old Lyme Connecticut. Artists include Eugene Higgins, Bruce Crane, Harry Hoffman, William Chadwick, and Edward Volkert among others."
The Lyme Art Association is a vibrant art center with a gallery where professional as well as developing artists mount major exhibitions throughout the year.
We also have a busy schedule of affordable art classes and workshops. Visit the historic Lyme Art Association on your next visit to Old Lyme CT where art lives!
