Art Exhibits/Openings

Lyme Art Association, 90 Lyme Street, Old Lyme, CT , 06371

Point of View: the 99th Annual Elected Artist Exhibition: The Elected Artists of the Lyme Art Association are an elite group of professional artists, primarily from New England. Their work is predominantly representational, but encompasses a variety of styles, subjects and mediums. This year we count the 99th year that the show has been held in our gallery building, but in truth, the Lyme Art Association artists held their exhibitions for years prior in the local library.

Another popular show, Animal Kingdom, will be hung in the Goodman Gallery concurrent with Point of View. Animal Kingdom presents works about furry, scaly, feathered, and finned creatures. Our member artists’ subjects range from ferocious to graceful to adorable.

virtual presentation, , , CT

7 p.m., In partnership with the Prudence Crandall Museum, Otis Library will host the virtual program “The Work Must Be Done:” Women of Color and the Right to Vote on Wednesday, September 30, at 7pm. This program is presented by the Connecticut Historical Society. It originally was to be presented in April as part of Otis Library’s Harris Sisters Month, which recognizes the courage and achievements of Norwich natives Sarah and Mary Harris.
Inspired by the words of notable African American reformer and political activist Mary Townsend Seymour, “The work must be done,” the Connecticut Historical Society presents new research about the women of color who worked for women’s suffrage. Ilene Frank, Chief Curator at CHS, and Professor Brittney Yancy of Goodwin University, will tell the stories of women such as Ms. Seymour, Rose Payton, Mary A. Johnson, Sarah Fleming, and others. The program includes conversation on the importance of having history that is inclusive.
Funding for this project is made possible by the State of Connecticut and the National Endowment for the Humanities, both of which provide significant support to Connecticut Humanities.
To register for this virtual program, please contact Julie Menders at Adultprograms@otislibrarynorwich.org, or you may register on the Library’s website calendar at www.otislibrarynorwich.org.
