The exhibit will be open from April 15 to May 14, Monday through Saturday, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the Chauncey Stillman Gallery at the College, 84 Lyme Street.
 
An opening-night reception will take place on April 15 from 5 to 8 p.m. Students will be present and available to discuss their work. Both the reception and exhibition are free and open to the public.
 
Works on exhibit include various media and represent projects of the Lyme Academy College students who will be awarded Bachelor of Fine Arts degrees in May.
 
“The Senior Exhibition celebrates the culminating artistic accomplishments of students in our BFA programs,” said Todd Jokl, campus dean. “It is a remarkable showcase where each student has the opportunity to exhibit a body of their work demonstrating their talent, unique perspective, and individual voice. I am very proud and excited for each of these senior student artists as they conclude their studies here and set their sights on the exciting prospects to come.”
 
Seniors at Lyme Academy College are provided with their own studio, where they work and participate in intensive critiques with their instructors, peers and visiting artists. It is an integral part of the program in which the students develop lasting personal and professional connections.
 
The seniors will hold open studios during the reception on April 15, where additional works will be on view.
