OLD LYME — Four new exhibitions, each with a different theme, will be on view in the Lyme Art Association’s beautiful historic galleries from March 4 through April 7. ‘Poetry of Motion’, ‘Black and White’, ‘Wanderlust’, and ‘Renewal: Visions of Spring’ will run concurrently, each in a separate room.
An Opening Reception for the show will be held Sunday, March 5, from 2 to 4 p.m. All are welcome.
The Exhibition in Four Acts is one of the LAA’s most dynamic and exciting exhibitions, bringing together four distinct types of representational art.
Poetry of Motion showcases the work of talented artist members, who set out to capture the fleeting gestures of action and movement within their artwork.
Black and White features work of all themes in black and white and all the greys in between.
Wanderlust will take visitors on vacation with the artists.
Renewal: Visions of Spring focuses on uplifting imagery of springtime and rebirth.
Four Acts is generously sponsored by Guilford Savings Bank in partnership with the Community Foundation of Middlesex County.
“A visit to the Lyme Art Association to see the Exhibition in Four Acts feels like visiting four different galleries. There is a variety and a shift in mood as you move from one gallery to the next,” states gallery manager, Jocelyn Zallinger.
She adds, “This show also allows a visitor to focus on each genre in a way that is not possible in other exhibitions.”
ESSEX/LYME/OLD LYME – On Sunday, March 20, Essex Winter Series (EWS) will bring the Resurgam Quartet to the stage for its third concert of the season, the annual Fenton Brown Emerging Artists Concert.

OLD LYME — On Wednesday, March 23, at 6:30 p.m., the Old Lyme Phoebe Griffin Noyes Library hosts local author and artist, Spencer Reece, who will present, All the Beauty that is Still Left: A Poet’s Painted Book of Hours, via Zoom. All are welcome to this free presentation.
Devotional poet, priest, and National Book Award nominee Spencer Reece found himself with family in Old Lyme to wait out the pandemic.
Seeking happiness amid the difficulties of this new situation, he channeled change into art; producing 50 vibrant watercolors inspired by his life journeys and his reflections of faith. Each painting faces a quote from an acclaimed writer or spokesperson that has inspired him, becoming a poet’s painted “Book of Hours”.
