The Town of Old Lyme presents an exhibition through the end of March featuring works from Lyme Academy College of Fine Arts students. The exhibition showcases recent works from Bachelor of Fine Art students, freshmen to seniors, in all disciplines, including Drawing, Illustration, Painting, and Sculpture.
The new picture hanging system was installed at the Town Hall in late spring, when an inaugural exhibit featured pieces created by students in classes at the Lymes’ Senior Center. Old Lyme First Selectwoman Bonnie Reemsnyder explains “Art is such an important part of our Old Lyme community. We installed the new system for the express purpose of displaying art from organizations in our community.”
Please feel free to contact the College with responses to the work on display. The public is welcome to participate in College openings, lectures, workshops, and various community and undergraduate programs. The 41st Annual Student Exhibition is on view at the Chauncey Stillman Gallery at the College on 84 Lyme St. from February 3 to March 25, 2017.
Lyme Academy College, as part of the University of New Haven, is the only Association of Independent Colleges of Art and Design institution in the State of Connecticut. Lyme Academy College has played an integral part in the town’s culture since 1976. The College has grown in numbers, ranking and prestige from a small community art school to a national presence.
All are welcome to attend an opening reception for the Lyme Academy College exhibit on Friday, February 17, 4:30 to 6:30pm at the Town Hall. The student exhibit can be viewed during regular Town Hall hours: 9am to 4pm, Monday through Friday.
