About Jeanne C. Potter

Jeanne C. Potter holds BFA and MFA degrees from Syracuse University College of Visual and Performing Arts with post-graduate studies at the Art Students League in New York and master classes with Burton Silverman and Raymond Kinstler. A life-long watercolorist, she has taught painting and drawing for over 25 years and is a former faculty member of the Corcoran College of Art and Design in Washington, DC and most recently was an Adjunct Professor at the Lyme Academy College of Fine Arts.

As a teacher, Jeanne provides her students with a wide range of technique, exciting subjects to paint, hands-on instruction and demonstrations. She also encourages each student to nurture their own art spirit and to learn from artists throughout history. She enjoys painting and drawing from life and also working in the studio with a focus on portrait, architecture and still life. Currently, Jeanne is exhibiting in national juried exhibitions and most recently received the Findley Prize for Watercolor at the 2019 National Providence Art Club Juried Exhibition as well as receiving the 2019 Sonja Geiguest Award at the 102nd Annual Juried Exhibition at the Bendheim Gallery in Greenwich, Connecticut. Jeanne has been honored at “Women in the Arts” day at the Connecticut state capital in Hartford and her work is represented in public and private collections.

  • 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.
