Exhibition Of Watercolor Landscapes

Wednesday, Jul 3, 2019 at 10:00am

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

New London – The Lyman Allyn Art Museum is pleased to announce the opening of Discovering New Beauty: Watercolor Landscapes of the Northeast. This exhibition features more than 50 works of art examining the varied landscapes of the Northeast over the last century and a half.

Discovering New Beauty considers how artists have utilized watercolor to depict the Northeast beginning in the 1870s, a time when watercolor experienced a surge in popularity. The formation of the American Society of Painters in Water Color (later, the American Watercolor Society) in 1866 helped to promote the medium and professionalize its use, and watercolor was enthusiastically taken up by a generation of young artists.

For more information or to request images, please contact Rebecca Dawson at 860-443-2545, ext. 2112 or at

Cost: Museum members are free and non-members are $10. Please RSVP to 860-443-2545.
