Lyme Art Association

The Lyme Art Association is a member-owned and operated art gallery and teaching studio in Lyme, a pretty town on the Connecticut shore.  The gallery mounts a half dozen shows each year and is well worth a visit.  Typically, the works that are shown are plein air landscape paintings and other realistic artwork.  I have bought two or three paintings here over the years.

Nice composition. I like how you gave us a good flavor of the place by including two rooms with artwork. The building and property shown on the website look quite inviting.

I enlarged the pic, and I think I would have bought some paintings too.The place is inviting, like if visitors were strolling through an appartement..

Very nice place and interesting works. This would be unthinkable here...

These sort of galleries are such a boon for local artists to show off their work, this one looks so beautifully laid out Jack. We have many smaller galleries in Perth, I love checking them out now and then, it's a great way to spend an afternoon oui!

Art galleries and museums are my favorite places. They remind me of the possibilities of humans and cultures.

This looks like a great space for browsing the artwork and falling in love with one or two pieces.

Looks like a nice place to spend an afternoon. I like the notion of a "member-owned and operated" art gallery. There's a similar thing - tho much less impressive in Cedar Key. (That's in Florida, just in case you forgot! ;-))

This sounds like a really interesting place that serves the community in many ways. Glad to know you are an art lover too!

Very good perspective and how nicely they display the art! It looks as if they have good lighting and a very human scale, a terrific place to spend time. What a treat to bring home some original art from here, too.

It looks wonderful - beautiful lighting.
Is that where Lyme disease originated?

Such a great place and I do love the paintings -- enjoyed enlarging them, too! Thanks for the tour as always, Jack! Hope your week is going well!

That's a brilliant idea. I wish we had something like it here. We might, perhaps I just don't know about it...

Great idea, lovely place and such a cool photo:)

It looks like a cozy place to enjoy art.

Lois said...

I wouldn't mind wandering around in there for the afternoon.

It looks like a very nice art gallery. Did they mind you taking photos?

The paintings are displayed really attractively - I'd love a wander around here.

What a lovely space with seemingly natural lighting. I want the large painting on the right side with the big tree! Nicely composed, Jack. Not easy to capture an art gallery well.

Regina K said...

Looks like a place I would find a painting or two. I like the serene atmosphere for browsing.

Looks like a lovely place to wander and enjoy the views.

Randy said...

I agree with Kate on this one. Looks like there are some wonderful works of art here.

Nice paintings. So sorry there is not many visitors though.
