On view March 10 – April 27, 2023
Opening Reception: Sunday, March 12 from 2 – 4 pm
The Lyme Art Association invites you to its historic galleries this March to see Four Acts, an exhibition showcasing the diversity of styles created by its talented member artists. Each juried show looks at the world through a different lens: Long & Lean, Abstracted, Off the Press and Stillness: A Still Life.
Long & Lean features artworks with a 2:1 or 3:1 minimum ratio. From long sweeping landscapes, to narrow vertical cityscapes, this exhibition contemplates how a picture’s shape affects its meaning.
Abstracted focuses on nonrepresentational and nonobjective art. Juried by renowned painter Cary Smith, the exhibition explores the abstractions of life and the internal moments between artists and their materials.
Off the Press is all about printmaking, highlighting a variety of techniques and media in the print medium. The show is juried by printmaker Nomi Silverman, whose work is in the collection of numerous museums and collections around the country and abroad, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, The New York Public Library, The William Benton Museum of Art.
Stillness: A Still Life is an ode to the artistic practice of making the ordinary extraordinary. For millennia, artists have practiced their skills by painting objects found around the home and giving those objects meaning. Juried by Providence-based painter and psychologist, Judy Vilmain, the exhibition is an introspection into the world of still life.
Four Acts runs from March 10 through April 27, 2023. Meet the artists and mingle with friends at the opening reception on Sunday, March 12 from 2:00 – 4:00 pm.
