Art Exhibits/Openings

Studio 33 Art and Frame Gallery, 140 Bank Street, New London, CT , 06320

The show featuring work by local artists Lizbeth McGee and Susan B. Stafford will run from Sept 4-30. There will be a meet&greet with the artists on Sept 15 from 1-3.

Liz has been involved in creating for years. Her life journey is a lot like painting. “The best quality about this medium,” says Liz, “is its ability to surprise. And that is its truest parallel to life. The greatest test is learning how to make something beautiful out of it.” Liz captures the area’s soul in her soft, wispy watercolors.

Susan has also been involved in art for years. Moving with her naval officer husband she traveled around, before settling back in the area to their satisfaction. Teaching art and exhibiting locally Susan strives to capture the heart of the area that captures visitors and locals alike.

The Lyman Allyn Art Museum Presents Kitty Wales: Lionfish;

Art Exhibits/Openings

The Lyman Allyn Art Museum, 625 Williams Street, New London, CT , 06320

Fascinated by the anatomy and movement of living creatures, Kitty Wales creates sculpture and installation art based on her direct observations of animals. She has traveled to the Scottish Hebrides to study wild goats, the Spanish Pyrenees to observe bearded vultures, and the Caribbean to document reef sharks in their underwater habitat. As part of a collaboration between the Lyman Allyn Art Museum and the Mystic Aquarium, Wales visited the Aquarium to observe their collection of marine life, taking photographs and preparing sketches that would later fuel her creations in the studio. Inspired by the textural, feathery forms of the lionfish, Wales then set to work envisioning a site-specific installation intended for the Lyman Allyn. Three larger-than-life lionfish sculptures constructed of welded steel, heavy paper, and recycled pencils will transform the gallery into a “deep-sea” environment for visitors of all ages.

The exhibit features several different styles of bridge design and explores how people's ideas of what bridges should look like and how they reflect how their communities have changed over time. The exhibit features many objects and images from the Museum's collections as well as paintings, original toll signs, documents and other artifacts on loan from other institutions. Through October 20.
