An exhibition of artwork by students at Lyme Academy College of Fine Arts opened at the Chauncey Stillman Gallery on Friday, February 4, 2011. The majority of works in the show will be for sale.

This juried exhibition showcases the best current work done by students in all of the College’s major programs, including the first-year Foundation program.  The judges include Debra Goertz – Interim Chair, Foundation, Shira Avidor – Interim Chair of Painting, Randy Melick – Chair of Drawing, Brian Craig-Wankiiri – Chair of Sculpture, and Richard Rose – Interim Chair of Illustration.

Sally Seaman, Assistant Dean of Academic Affairs at the College, indicated that some 90 works were selected for inclusion into the exhibition out of an entry pool of at least 160 pieces.  Merit Award winners will then be chosen from the selected works.

Seaman commented, “It’s an exciting show that demonstrates examples of student work from all four years of study at the school and it’s fascinating to see the progression of skill and creativity from year to year.”

Laura Zarrow, Dean and Vice President of Academic Affairs, added, “We have an exceptionally talented student body that is moving through a rigorous program of study. This show is a wonderful opportunity to see the curriculum made visible, and how the students’ talent is cultivated through their four years here.”
The exhibition runs through April 2, 2011 in the College’s Chauncey Stillman Gallery, and is free and open to the public Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The College gratefully acknowledges the generous support of Smith Insurance, Inc., for this exhibition, and the Homeland Foundation, Inc., for support of the Chauncey Stillman Gallery.
