LYME — Vis­i­tors of all ages can visit “Amer­i­can Wa­ters,” the Lyme Art As­so­ci­a­tion’s sum­mer ex­hi­bi­tion of work by the area’s premier mar­itime artists. The show will be on view in the sky-lit gal­leries from June 15 through Aug. 3.

Gallery man­ager Jo­ce­lyn Zallinger said, “The lovely peace­ful in­te­rior of the Lyme Art As­so­ci­a­tion is the per­fect venue for marinein­spired art. The art­work, by mem­ber artists, takes in­spi­ra­tion from the sea in all its man­i­fes­ta­tions. Chil­dren play­ing by placid shore­lines, boats in rag­ing storms, soli­tary fish­er­men, and waves crash­ing on beaches are likely to be among the works rep­re­sented.”

“Amer­i­can Wa­ters” will be juried by Monique Fos­ter, direc­tor of the Mys­tic Mar­itime Gallery at Mys­tic Sea­port.

Con­cur­rent with the “Amer­i­can Wa­ters” ex­hi­bi­tion, the Hud­son Val­ley Art As­so­ci­a­tion will present its 85th an­nual Juried Ex­hi­bi­tion. This ex­hi­bi­tion in­cludes the finest rep­re­sen­ta­tional paint­ings, draw­ings, prints and sculp­ture from HVAA’s mem­ber artists.

Lyme Art As­so­ci­a­tion Board Pres­i­dent Kather­ine Simmons, said, “‘Amer­i­can Wa­ters’ con­tin­ues an LAA tra­di­tion of ex­hibit­ing the best of fine con­tem­po­rary Amer­i­can ma­rine art. We are also very pleased to wel­come back the Hud­son Val­ley Art As­so­ci­a­tion and what is sure to be a very im­pres­sive show. We would es­pe­cially like to thank our pre­sent­ing spon­sor, Suis­man Shapiro.”

The open­ing re­cep­tion for both ex­hi­bi­tions will be held on Satur­day, June 23 from 5:30-7:30 p.m. at the Lyme Art As­so­ci­a­tion, 90 Lyme St., Old Lyme, with fun, mu­sic and re­fresh­ments.

The Lyme Art As­so­ci­a­tion 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. Ad­mis­sion is free with con­tri­bu­tions ap­pre­ci­ated. Gallery hours are Wed­nes­day through Sun­day, 10 to 5pm.
