Lyme Art Association

Lyme
Art Association is a non-profit art organization located in Old Lyme,
Connecticut. In August 1902, a group of tonalist painters,
led by Henry Ward Ranger, who had been boarding at the home
of Florence Griswold, were asked to hold a two-day exhibit
at the local library. With exhibits continuing each summer,
the artists eventually incorporated in 1914, and built their
own gallery in town in 1921, designed by architect Charles
A. Platt. These are the archives of its 117-year history.
