In 1921, after years of discussion, planning, and fundraising, the early members of the Lyme Art Association achieved their goal: a purpose-built gallery to display their art. This year we will be marking this milestone with special exhibitions, events, and activities.

A Century of Inspiration, the Lyme Art Association’s summer exhibition will explore the connections between the current Association’s artists and the original Lyme Art Colony artists who planned, fundraised, and built the gallery. Our members’ best work, inspired by some of the same landscapes and subject matter that early Lyme artists painted, will be hung along with pieces by the founding artists. Displays exploring the founding, growth, and changes in the Lyme Art Association will be presented, taking visitors all the way through the century that saw so much change in the Association and the world at large.

The Century of Inspiration exhibit runs from July 30 through September 16. The Lyme Association gallery is open from Wednesday through Sunday, 10 am – 5 pm, and by appointment.
