Young artists visiting his work

This year the Lyme Art Association is celebrating the 100th anniversary of our historic gallery. We asked 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 were all great subjects for this show!

Our young artists were invited to create paintings are drawings inspired by the work of the Lyme Art Colony. Some of them found ideas by looking through a gallery on our website of works by our founding artists, as well as galleries of works by contemporary LAA artists. Others painted or drew outside – en plein air – like many of the founding artists did. There are some wonderful local places for outside art!
