The exhibition will focus on the vibrant history of the Old Lyme Art Colony of Connecticut, often referred to as the home of American Impressionism. Works by artists such as Childe Hassam, Willard Metcalf, John Twachtman, and Dwight Tryon will be featured along with photographs of the artists working at the colony. Also included are 18th-century and 19th-century paintings by artists such as Ralph Earl, Frederic E. Church, John Kensett, and John Ludlow Morton.More Information.
We will begin by mastering the essentials of foreground, middle ground, and background to show depth of space. Kids will stretch their imagination by creating landscapes in the style of the realists, abstractionists, and impressionists.More information. Register now!
