37th Annual Juried Student Exhibition Opens at Lyme Academy College

An exhibition of artwork by students at Lyme Academy College of Fine Arts opens at the Chauncey Stillman Gallery on Friday, Feb. 15, with a reception from 6 to 8 p.m.  Both the reception and entry to the exhibition are free and open to the public - all are welcome. 

This juried exhibition showcases the best current work done by students in all of the College’s major programs, including the first-year Foundation program.  The judges are the chairs of the four studio departments.

Sally Seaman, Interim Dean and Vice President of Academic Affairs at the College, anticipates some 90 works will be selected for inclusion into the exhibition out of an entry pool of at least 160 pieces.

Seaman comments, “It’s an exciting show that demonstrates examples of student work from all four years of study at the school and it’s fascinating to see the progression of skill and creativity from year to year.”

Lyme Academy College President Scott Colley adds, “We have an exceptionally talented student body that is moving through a rigorous program of study.  This show is a wonderful opportunity to see both the curriculum made visible, and how the students’ talent is cultivated throughout their four years here.”

The majority of works in the show will be for sale.  Seaman notes, “This exhibition is typically eagerly anticipated by the community not only for its content, but also for its purchasing opportunities.”

The exhibition runs from its opening on Feb. 15 through Saturday, March 30, in the College’s Chauncey Stillman Gallery.  Entry to the exhibition is free and open to the public Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
