Lyme Art Association Still Open, Presents ‘Yin and Yang: Abstraction and Realism’

One of the signature paintings of the ‘Yin and Yang’ exhibition is ‘Leaving the Nest’ in pastel by Sandra Karakoosh.

OLD LYME — We were informed earlier today that the opening reception for Yin and Yang, scheduled to be held Sunday, March 15, from 2 to 4 p.m. at the Lyme Art Association, has been CANCELLED.

Lyme Art Association presents Yin and Yang, Abstraction and Realism, two shows which highlight both abstract and highly realistic works. The exhibit presents work from the Association’s member artists, juried by Susan Fisher, the Executive Director of the Mystic Museum of Art. The opening reception for Yin and Yang will be held on Sunday, March 15, from 2 to 4 p.m. at the Lyme Art Association, 90 Lyme St., in Old Lyme.

The show runs through April 17, 2020.

“Each year we present one show that allows our members, whose work is generally strongly representational, to show us what else they have been doing in their studios. These are creative people – unlikely to allow themselves to get stuck in a rut, and it’s wonderful to see something entirely different, alongside the realistic work. We know that these shows together will be lively and exciting, sure to be a hit with visitors,” comments Lyme Art Association Executive Director Laurie Pavlos.

Another signature work for the exhibition is this still-life in oil by Alexander Farquharson, titled, ‘, Picnic Basket.’

She continues, “Yin and Yang is the idea of forces that both oppose and complement each other; we hope gallery visitors get a sense of this when viewing the shows.”

The Presenting Sponsor for Yin and Yang is SKY Investment Group.

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 Lyme Art Association is located at 90 Lyme Street, Old Lyme, CT, in a building designed by Charles Adams Platt and located within an historic district. Admission is free with contributions appreciated.

Gallery hours are Wednesday through Sunday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. or by appointment.
