• Summer Plein Air Group Beginning!

    This group will meet in June and July, mostly on Tuesday mornings, from 9 am - noon. A new location will be visited each week. In many cases, special permission has been granted to access the site for the morning, and we ask those painting in the group to respect the owners' generosity and privacy and not re-visit the site at a later time.


    Extended Hours for Summer!

    During the months of June, July, and August, the gallery will be open until 7:30 pm on Thursdays. Take advantage of beautiful long days and see some art!

    The Gallery is open from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm from Wednesday through Sunday.

    If you are in the area on Monday or Tuesday, please just drive behind the building and park in the back parking lot. Then come in the blue back door and office staff will open the gallery for you! You may also call in advance and make an appointment outside of regular hours.



  • Art About Town

    For a quiet little town, Old Lyme is packed with art!

    During the first two decades of the twentieth century, Old Lyme was the home of a flourishing and prolific art colony, centered on Florence Griswold's boarding house. The Florence Griswold Museum, right next door, has an ongoing exhibit of the Lyme Impressionists - An American Place: The Art Colony at Old Lyme. The Lyme Art Association's story began at Miss Griswold's house - make sure you visit to see this exhibit as well as their beautifully curated and presented special exhibitions.

    The University of New Haven’s Lyme Academy College of Fine Arts is just down the street, and also has rotating exhibits of both student and alumni art.

  • "It is the ideal gallery . . . . Greater appropriateness, beauty of proportions and refinement of taste hardly could be found . . . . Truly an artist's gallery, built for and by and with artists."

    The New York Times Book Review and Magazine, August 14, 1921.
