"Discovering New Beauty: Watercolor Landscapes of the Northeast"

April 27 - August 3

Landscapes tell stories about place, history, and belonging, capturing the beauty of the world around us. Discovering New Beauty: Watercolor Landscapes of the Northeast examines the varying landscape of the Northeast over the last hundred or so years. Drawn largely from the Lyman Allyn’s permanent collection, this exhibition includes watercolors of the forest, fields, hills, shoreline, and sea. It also explores the built environment, with urban and suburban scenes that reflect on changing demographics. The exhibition looks at watercolor as a medium, exploring different artists’ techniques and considering how the quick-drying pigments are useful for artists working outdoors.
