The Lyme Art Association’s upcoming exhibition Ship to Shore: A Maritime Show celebrates all aspects of the sea and shoreline life in a broad range of styles and mediums including paintings, prints and sculptures. From coastal scenes and quiet harbors to competitive sailing to marine wildlife, this show featuring members’ work is sure to delight visitors. The show runs from June 10 through August 4, 2022. 

Alongside Ship to Shore, the Connecticut Pastel Society will present Renaissance in Pastel. The exhibition includes the finest pastel work from the Connecticut Pastel Society member artists. 

A final concurrent exhibition, Water All Around Us, will feature young artists’ work that is inspired by the bodies of water that are all around us, from Long Island Sound to the Lieutenant River to ponds or streams or puddles in your own backyard or local park.
