The 6th Annual en plein air Paint-Out sponsored by the Lyme Land Conservation Trust and Lyme Art Association will be held again on October 7, due to unsettled weather on Saturday September 30.
The paint-out continues the tradition established by the early American Impressionists who founded the Lyme Art Colony over a hundred years ago. All plein air artists are invited to join their colleagues for a beautiful Spring weekend of outdoor painting and camaraderie.
The Red Mill at Moulson Pond, a historic landmark on the Eightmile River, is believed to be the original structure built by Duncan MacIntosh as a grist mill circa 1785. The building had almost continuous business use until it became a residence in the 1950s.
Directions: Rte. 156 to Mr. Archer Road. Continue over Bridge (Red Mill on left; Moulson Pond on right). Left after Bridge onto Honey Hill Lane.
Works created during the 2017 Paint-Out are eligible for exhibition and sale during the Celebrating Lyme’s Beauty Exhibition, to be held at the Lyme Art Association from November 10, 2017 through Januray 5, 2018.
