This summer we invite artists ages 5 to 18 to explore the beauty within!
This show is about expressing the beauty of our individuality. We are looking for young artists to create 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.

Entering the Exhibition
Each artist may submit two pieces. Any 2-dimensional media are welcome – from paints to pencils or pastels to markers and crayons. Choose your best work!

  • We ask that each artist write (or dictate) a short description of their piece and why they chose their subject.
  • Artwork must be framed, with a wire or sawtooth hanger. Framed pieces should be no bigger than 18 x 24 inches. We will not accept unframed pieces.
  • Please also email a photo of your piece before it is in the framed to

Important Dates
We will be accepting artwork from June 1 through June 18 from 10am – 5pm. 

  • The deadline for submission is June 18.
  • Fill out the Artwork Entry Form, and bring it along with your piece to the Lyme Art Association at 90 Lyme Street by deadline.

Art will be available for pickup after July 17.
