Figurative Moving Forward
The Future of Art: Exhibition of Recent Visiting Artists
Exhibition on View: September 28 - November 10, 2018
Opening Reception: Friday, September 28, 5 - 7 p.m.
Monday - Saturday, 10 a.m. - 4 p.m.
Chauncey Stillman Gallery
Lyme Academy College of Fine Arts
84 Lyme Street, Old Lyme, CT

“Figurative Moving Forward” showcases the work of ten distinctive artists from the Visiting Artist Program whose work varies in media, technique and imagery. They were selected based on the central role the human figure plays in their art and the “realism” or intricate techniques they use in their creative practices, which also forms a conceptual framework to explore allegorical themes, symbols or narrative details. I hope that together these works will feel visually arresting and will engage the viewer to uncover the layers of meaning embedded in each individual work."

Stonington Free Library, 20 High St., Stonington, CT , 06378

Drop In Story Time for Ages 2–5. We reinforce early literacy skills through books, songs and finger plays. There is also a craft based on the weekly theme.

Our Story Times employ techniques aimed at developing Early Literacy skills and enabling caregivers to reinforce the same skills at home. We are avid proponents of reading aloud to children, long past the time they have learned to read themselves. This improves listening skills, attention span, fluency, increases vocabulary and develops a love for story. These are all skills necessary for a successful school transition. In addition, you will find educational toys and computers in the Children’s area, along with AWE Early Learning stations offering digital literacy programs for pre-K and elementary schoolers.
