Lyme Art Association is proud to announce Point of view, the 101st Annual Elected Artists Show. This exhibition showcases the best of the figurative art of our chosen artists, who are our most accomplished artists and the torchbearers of the American figurative tradition. They follow directly in the footsteps of the artists of the Lyme Art Colony who hung their Tonalist and Impressionist works on the walls of the local library in 1901. This is an exhibition not to be missed. Running simultaneously is True blue. Considered beneficial for the mind and body, the color blue provides a sense of tranquility and healing. We challenged our associate artists to submit work where blue is the predominant or most significant color in their work. This ode to blue will be a visual treat for viewers.

Both shows are proudly sponsored by Chelsea Groton Bank, our supporting sponsor.

The opening reception for both shows will be Friday, August 19 from 5-7 p.m. at the Lyme Art Association, 90 Lyme Street in Old Lyme, Connecticut. Point of view and true blue are visible from August 12 to September 22, 2022 and are open to the public. The gallery is open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Wednesday through Sunday, and by appointment.
