Jim Laurino

“Barns on Creamery Hill”, 18×18, Oil/Canvas

Jim began painting as a teenager and eventually studied design and color theory at the University of Connecticut. Through workshops and self-study, Jim has cultivated a bold representational painting style that balances the impressionists’ influence with contemporary subject matter. His expressive application of paint, married with a keen eye for classic New England scenes, charms the viewer and truly makes his work unique.

Jim constructs frames for all of his paintings. The frames, which are made out of reclaimed wood material, fashion a rustic window into each piece, subtly complimenting his work. A brief write-up of Jim’s approach to painting and framing was featured in Plein-Air magazines’ Jan 2018 issue.

Jim’s paintings are in numerous private collections. He shows his work in galleries throughout the nutmeg state, and enjoys participating in competitive events across the Northeast. Jim is proud to be a longstanding member of the Lyme Art Association, and exhibits there frequently.

  • A Century of Inspiration

    July 30 – Sept. 16, 2021

    About the Exhibition: A Century of Inspiration is an exhibit dedicated to celebrating the 100th anniversary of our beloved gallery. We are asking artists to look back at the work of the original art colony for inspiration. Bucolic landscapes with cows or sheep, woodland interiors, gardens beside a cottage, mountain laurels in bloom, bridges, porch scenes, moonlit nocturnes, portraits and so much more would be appropriate subject matter for this show. LAA is not looking for copies of the originals or asking artists to work in a style that is not their own, but to be inspired by the subject matter, color, and spirit of the founding members of LAA.

    All participants will be eligible for the following prizes, 1st $500, 2nd $250 and 3rd $125. 

    Open to all LAA member artists. Please download the prospectus for more details.
