Experience the joy of art this holiday season in Old Lyme! “Deck the Walls”, the Lyme Art Association’s most festive exhibition, goes on view starting November 18. The show will feature more than 200 pieces of original artwork. Take some time in your day to immerse yourself in creativity of the Association’s member artists while strolling through elegant skylit galleries.
Concurrent shows include “Emerging Hope”, featuring Aleta Gudelski’s depictions of the quiet beauty of the natural world and seeing light along life’s journey. Also on view are solo shows featuring Elected Artists John Traynor and Christopher Zhang. John Traynor uses his unique blend of realism and atmospheric impressionism to create emotive landscapes. Christopher Zhang combines Impressionist colors with the big and rough brushstrokes of Russian realism to create pieces that balance his style and personality. Finally, the Society of Connecticut Sculptors will have works on display throughout the galleries.
“The gallery is a wonderful place to visit to find some peace during this busy season, either by yourself or with friends and family. If you feel particularly inspired, consider supporting the arts in our community by purchasing a piece for yourself or as a gift,” says Executive Director Elsbeth Dowd.
All shows are on view from November 18, 2022 – January 1, 2023. Opening reception is on Sunday, November 27 from 2 – 4 pm.
“Deck the Walls” is proudly supported by William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realty, our premier sponsor.
