  • This year the Lyme Art Association is celebrating the 100th anniversary of our historic gallery. We are asking young artists to look back at the work of the original art colony for inspiration. Landscapes, gardens, mountain laurels in bloom, bridges, rivers, porch scenes, portraits … these would all be great subjects for this show! We invite all young artists ages 5 to 18 to participate in this exciting exhibit.
