On view at the Lyme Art Association August 7 – 29 and at the Phoebe Griffin Noyes Library in September.
Entry Deadline: Saturday, July 31st
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 enter their work in Young Impressions, a celebratory exhibition that will complement our member artist exhibition A Century of Inspiration.
The exhibit will be on view at the Lyme Art Association August 7 – 29. A portion of the exhibit will be on view at the Phoebe Griffin Noyes Library in September.
Create Art in the Spirit of the Lyme Art Colony!
We invite you to create a painting or drawing inspired by the work of the Lyme Art Colony. If you are looking for some ideas, we have a gallery on our website of works by our founding artists, as well as galleries of works by contemporary LAA artists.
You might also want to paint or draw outside – en plein air – like many of the founding artists did. There are some wonderful local places for outside art!
All 2-dimensional media are welcome – from paints to pencils to markers and crayons. Pieces should be no bigger than 18 x 24 inches. We encourage you to mat or frame your work, if possible.
Enter the Exhibition!
When your painting or drawing is ready, you can submit your work to the exhibit. Fill out this entry form, and bring it and your piece to the Lyme Art Association at 90 Lyme Street. We are open Wednesday through Sunday, 10am-5pm. We ask that each person only submit one piece. Choose your best work!
While the utmost care will be taken in handling all works, the LAA, its directors and agents assume no liability for damage, loss, or theft of submitted work.
