with Amy Kurtz Lansing, Curator
In 2021 we will celebrate the Centennial of the Lyme Art Association Gallery. In August 1921, the Lyme Art Association (LAA) opened a permanent gallery in Old Lyme designed by architect Charles A. Platt. This exhibition commemorates the centennial of the building, which was conceived of and developed by artists who had formed a colony based next door at Florence Griswold’s boardinghouse beginning in 1900. The Lyme Art Association’s inaugural exhibition in the gallery was also its twentieth annual show, which featured the work of Lyme Art Colony painters, past and present. It served as a reflection upon the colony’s first two decades and as a representation of contemporary directions in their art as Americans considered their identity in the aftermath of World War I.
The lecture will take place virtually via GoTo Webinar. You will receive a confirmation email of your registration. The link to the virtual program will be sent via email closer to the event date. Email firstname.lastname@example.org with questions.
