Three Shows On View at Lyme Art Association; ‘Deck the Walls’, “Hands on the Land,’ ‘Polly Seip Solo Show’

‘Harvest Moon’ by Del-Bourree Bach in acrylics is one of the featured works in the ‘Deck the Halls’ show on view at Lyme Art Association.

OLD LYME — There are currently three shows on view at Lyme Art Association (LAA.)

The signature show is the LAA’s perennially popular holiday art exhibition and sale, Deck the Walls, which is on view through Jan. 2, 2022. More than 200 original works of art by member artists will be on display and priced to sell as holiday gifts. Deck the Walls features a wide variety of appealing subjects and tends toward smaller, less expensive works.

Concurrently with Deck the Walls, an exhibition reflecting on the impact of humans on the local landscape will be on view. This show titled Hands on the Land is a collaboration with the Connecticut River Museum and was previously on view there.

A third show, the Polly Seip Solo Show, is also on view. Polly Seip won the first prize in the 2019 Associate Artists Show, and received the opportunity to present a solo show. Her luminous nocturnes are especially noteworthy.

‘Slate-Colored Junco’ by Bivenne Staiger reflects the wintry theme of the ‘Deck the Halls’ show.

“For Deck the Walls, the Lyme Art Association features a wide variety of appealing subjects at affordable prices that are great for holiday shopping. We hope to help solve those gift giving dilemmas – a beautiful piece of artwork is always appreciated!” says Jocelyn Zallinger, Gallery Manager.

“During the holiday season, the Lyme Art Association is a great place to come for a gentle activity for children on school vacation or for visiting guests. Whether you have a few minutes or more than an hour, the gallery is a wonderful way to decompress, stimulate conversation, or simply enjoy yourself,” comments Laurie Pavlos, Executive Director.

‘Winter Light’ by Caleb Stone is another of the signature paintings in the ‘Deck The Walls’ show.

The LAA is free and open to the public Wednesday through Sunday, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and by appointment.

The LAA is located at 90 Lyme St. in Old Lyme, at the corner of Halls Road. Call 860-434-7802 for more information, or visit
