First Impressions & Congratulations

March 1, 2023 - March 2, 2023

Visitors to the Lyme Art Association will experience the best in contemporary representational art in two shows on view this winter highlighting their member artists’ accomplishments. For more than 100 years, artists flocked to Old Lyme to create and exhibit fine art, and today’s members of the Lyme Art Association carry on that tradition.

“First Impressions”, the 31st Annual Associate Artist show, is on view through March 2, 2023. This juried exhibition features the Lyme Art Association’s Associate Artist members, accomplished artists who have successfully exhibited in selective shows. Artists in the show vie for the coveted first place award, which comes with an opportunity for a solo show later in the year. First Impressions includes a full range of media and themes: landscape, portrait, still life paintings and sculpture. The exhibition is juried by landscape painter and illustrator John MacDonald.

At the same time, the Lyme Art Association is proud to feature its newest Elected Artists in the show Congratulations. These artists were elected by their peers after a rigorous selection and evaluation process. These seven newly elected artists will display a selection of their work in this group exhibition. Join us in welcoming new Elected Artists Linda Boisvert-DeStefanis, Jessica Teti Turgoose, Earl Grenville Killeen, Brian McClear, Nick Salerno, Bill Sonstrom and Garnet Wrigley, and see highlights from their impressive portfolios. Both exhibits are on view now and run through March 2, 2023.

First Impressions and Congratulations are proudly supported by Liberty Bank, our Presenting Sponsor.
