Four new exhibitions, each with a different theme, are on view in the Lyme Art Association’s skylit, historic galleries through April 28. A Contemporary Look, Holding Still, Industrious America, and LAA Faculty run concurrently. An opening reception for all four exhibitions will be held on Sunday, March 26, from 2-4 p.m.
The Exhibition in Four Acts brings together four distinct types of representational art. Industrious America showcases the work of talented artist members who set out to celebrate American industry and the man-made landscape. A Contemporary Look is an exhibition of abstracted, yet still representational work. Holding Still features still life works in all mediums, and LAA Faculty features work by the association’s studio instructors.
“A visit to the Lyme Art Association to see the Exhibition in Four Acts feels like visiting four different galleries. There is a variety and a shift in mood as you move from one gallery to the next,” said gallery manager, Jocelyn Zallinger. “This show also allows a visitor to focus on each genre in a way that is not possible in other exhibitions.”
The gallery is located at 90 Lyme Street, Old Lyme. The Lyme Art Association was founded in 1914 by the American Impressionists and continues the tradition of exhibiting and selling representational artwork, as well as offering art instruction and lectures to the community. Gallery hours are Wednesday through Sunday, noon to 5 pm, or by appointment. Admission is free with contributions appreciated. For more information, call 860-434-7802 or visit lymeartassociation.org.
