‘American Waters’ Exhibition, Hudson Valley Art Association Juried Show on View at Lyme Art Association

‘Bottoms Up’ by Richard Stevens is one of the signature paintings of the ‘American Waters’ exhibition.

Visitors of all ages will enjoy American Waters, the Lyme Art Association’s (LAA) summer exhibition of work by the area’s premier maritime artists. The show will be on view in the LAA’s sky-lit galleries from June 15 through Aug. 3. The opening reception for both exhibitions will be held on Saturday, June 23, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the LAA, 90 Lyme Street, Old Lyme, Connecticut. Music and refreshments will be offered and all are welcome.  There is no charge for admission.

Gallery Manager Jocelyn Zallinger notes, “The lovely peaceful interior of the Lyme Art Association is the perfect venue for marine-inspired art. The artwork, by member artists, takes inspiration from the sea in all its manifestations. Children playing by placid shorelines, boats in raging storms, solitary fishermen, and waves crashing on beaches are likely to be among the works represented.”

American Waters will be juried by Monique Foster, director of the Mystic Maritime Gallery at Mystic Seaport.

‘Windswept’ by Judy Perry is another featured work in the ‘American Waters’ show.

Concurrent with the American Waters exhibition, the Hudson Valley Art Association (HVAA) will present its 85th Annual Juried Exhibition. This exhibition includes the finest representational paintings, drawings, prints and sculpture from HVAA’s member artists.

Lyme Art Association Board President Katherine Simmons comments, “American Waters continues an LAA tradition of exhibiting the best of fine contemporary American marine art. We are also very pleased to welcome back the Hudson Valley Art Association and what is sure to be a very impressive show. We would especially like to thank our presenting sponsor, Suisman Shapiro.”

The Lyme Art Association was founded in 1914 by the American Impressionists and continues the tradition of exhibiting and selling representational artwork by its members and invited artists, as well as offering art instruction and lectures to the community.

The Association is located at 90 Lyme Street, Old Lyme, CT , in a building designed by Charles Adams Platt and located within a national historic district. Admission is free with contributions appreciated. Gallery hours are Wednesday through Sunday, 10 to 5 p.m.
