about the Lyme Art Association:

Founded in 1914, the Lyme Art Association is a welcoming and vibrant fine arts community and nonprofit arts center in the heart of Old Lyme, Connecticut, which was home more than a century ago to the Lyme Art Colony of American Impressionists. Its mission is to promote and cultivate an appreciation for representational fine arts by holding art exhibitions along with conducting educational programs for the benefit of its members and the greater community. The Lyme Art Association is in a historic, skylit 1921 building designed by renowned architect Charles A. Platt, and contains world-class galleries and an art education studio. To cultivate the love of fine art, the Lyme Art Association exhibits over 2,000 paintings and sculptures each year in up to fifteen themed, juried shows; plus, it offers art instruction, art demonstrations, enriching lectures, and other community events, all while supporting artists at every level of their creative journey. Admission is free with contributions appreciated. Gallery Hours are Wednesdays – Sundays from 10 am – 5 pm.
