The 6th Annual Lyme Land Conservation Trust’s Celebrating Lyme’s Beauty Exhibition will be shown in the Goodman Gallery of the Lyme Art Association and will run concurrent with the LAA’s annual holiday exhibition, Deck the Walls. A festive opening reception will be held on November 17, 2017 from 5-7 pm. On exhibit will be landscapes created in September 2017 during the “Celebrating Lyme’s Beauty” Paint-Out. The Paint-Out event continues the plein air tradition established by the early American Impressionists who founded the Lyme Art Colony over a hundred years ago.
The landscapes will highlight the natural beauty of the Lyme Land Trust’s Moulson Pond. 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.
This event is a fundraiser for the Lyme Land Conservation Trust, with a portion of each sale donated to the Trust to further its mission to preserve Lyme’s natural beauty for the public benefit.
Opening Reception: Friday, November 17, 5-7 pm
Gallery Hours: Wednesday – Sunday, 10am – 5pm
