The Connecticut River Museum in Essex, Ct, is collaborating with Lyme Art Association on a topical exhibition titled "Hands on the Land: Art & the Environment in the Connecticut River Valley."
Members of the Lyme Art Association are asked to submit work related to this theme. For more information on this show, click here.
Artwork does not have to contain historical content but should interpret concepts of change, impact, inspiration, reflection, or other vision of “man’s hand on the land.”
Essex Savings Bank will be collecting votes throughout the month of February. At the end of this period, the votes are tallied and translate into a percentage of the total amount of allocated funds. Support LAA by voting! Ballots are now available at all Essex Savings branches (Madison, Old Lyme, Old Saybrook, Chester, and Essex), and must be submitted by February 28, 2021. This year ESB customers can also vote online by logging onto their online baking account. Click here for more details.
The Lyme Art Association celebrates the 100th anniversary of the gallery in 2021. You can learn about the Association's rich history and connection with the Lyme Art Colony and Florence Griswold by exploring the fabulous exhibit at the Florence Griswold Museum celebrating our centennial. The Museum has assembled works from the artists who presented work in the 1921 inaugural exhibit in the gallery and presented them with informational signage that touches on the connection and importance of each artist to the original colony and to the new Lyme Art Association. You can visit the exhibit at the Florence Griswold Museum in person (reservations are required due to COVID) or virtually by touring the show on-line.
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!
