Lyme Art Association is pleased to present two exhibitions, ship ashore and Revival in Pastel. Celebrating all aspects of marine and coastal life, ship ashore is a member exhibition that showcases a wide range of styles and mediums, including paintings, drawings, and sculpture. The exhibition is judged by Anthony Tomaselli. Tomaselli is a painter based in Providence, RI. He apprenticed with Gene Tonoff and Joseph Rotundo and is represented by various galleries.

Gallery Director Paul Michael says, “Our coastal communities are a vital part of New England life. This exhibition acts as an investigation into contemporary maritime art, celebrating the seas that connect us.

parallel to ship ashore, the Connecticut Pastel Society will display Revival in Pastel. The exhibit includes the finest pastels from member artists of the Connecticut Pastel Society. The Lyme Art Association is delighted to welcome the Connecticut Pastel Society back to what is sure to be a very impressive show. The exhibition prizes are awarded by Eileen Casey.
