Exhibition Website

Jun 12 2016 - Sep 4 2016

Mattatuck Museum

Waterbury, CT

Women in gauzy dresses and wide-brimmed hats, men in blazers and flannels mingled in the annual garden parties hosted by the Lyme Art Association. 

A 1931 painting, Tea Day, by LAA artist Edward Volkert is the instigation for this exhibition which, like a snapshot in time, will focus on the art of this period in Old Lyme Connecticut. Artists include Eugene Higgins, Bruce Crane, Harry Hoffman, William Chadwick, and Edward Volkert among others.
