Young Artists Exhibition

The Beauty Within

On view June 24 - July 16, 2023

Almost 100 works are included in this year’s young artists show, and culminated into two lovely shows, “The Beauty Within”, which focuses on figurative art and portraiture of inspiring people and heroes; while “Beauty All Around Us” focuses on the beauty of beloved objects in one’s life.

Participating artists, ages 5 – 18, came from Lyme, Old Lyme, New London, Niantic and even Hawaii, and included students from Lizhai Art School and Barn for Artistic Youth.

Support for this program generously provided by the Chelsea Groton Foundation.

This summer we invited artists ages 5 to 18 to explore the beauty within!
This Young Artist Show was about expressing the beauty of our individuality. Young artists created a portrait of a person they love or admire. Whether it is a portrait of a friend, a family member, a teacher, a coach, a hero, or a self portrait, this exhibition is all about self expression with portraiture.  Also, on view was “Beauty All Around Us.”, the youth still life exhibit.  For both shows, each artist submitted up to two pieces created in a variety of 2-dimensional media from paints to pencils or pastels to markers and crayons.
