‘Ratatouille’ by Cheryl Weyman in oil is the signature painting of the Palate to Palette segment of the exhibition.

Four new exhibitions, each with a different theme, will be on view in the Lyme Art Association’s (LAA) beautiful historic galleries from Friday, March 4, through April 15. A Contemporary Look, Drawing Attention, Palate to Palette, and Urban Landscape run concurrently. An opening reception for all four exhibitions will be held on Sunday, March 13, from 1 to 3 p.m.

The Exhibition in Four Acts is one of the LAA’s most dynamic and exciting exhibitions, bringing together four distinct types of representational art. Urban Landscape showcases the work of talented artist members who set out to capture the architecture and life of town and city. A Contemporary Look is an exhibition of abstracted, yet still representational work. Drawing Attention features work of all themes in charcoal, graphite and ink, and Palate to Palette focuses on food, dining and cooking. Each exhibition is shown in one of the four skylit galleries in our historic building.

“A visit to the Lyme Art Association to see the Exhibition in Four Acts feels like visiting four different galleries. There is a variety and a shift in mood as you move from one gallery to the next,” states gallery manager, Jocelyn Zallinger. “This show also allows a visitor to focus on each genre in a way that is not possible in other exhibitions.”

The opening reception for all four exhibitions is free to the public and will be held on Sunday, March 13, from 1 to 3 p.m. at the gallery located at 90 Lyme St., Old Lyme, Conn.

The LAA was founded in 1914 by the American Impressionists and continues the tradition of exhibiting and selling representational artwork by its members and invited artists, as well as offering art instruction and lectures to the community. The Association is housed in a building designed by Charles Adams Platt and located within an historic district. Admission is free with contributions appreciated. Gallery hours are Wednesday through Sunday, 12 to 5 p.m., or by appointment.
