The opening reception for the Lyme-Old Lyme Junior Women’s Club (LOLJWC) annual “Expressions” Art Show will be held on Friday evening, April 26, from 6 to 10 p.m. at the Lyme Art Association. The yearly fundraiser features a wide array of works from noted local and regional artists.
The opening night reception will feature live music from local band, The Side Doors, along with live and silent auctions.
For more than a quarter of a century, the LOLJWC Art Show has served as the biggest fundraising event for the organization. Over the years, hundreds of thousands of dollars raised at the show have gone directly to help local charities. This year’s beneficiaries are: The Lyme Art Association, Child and Family Agency of Southeastern Connecticut, Safe Futures (formerly the Women’s Center of Southeastern CT), the Old Lyme Phoebe Griffin Noyes Library and the Lyme Ambulance Association.
For the first time ever, artwork by 35 artists invited to participate in the LOLJWC Art Show will remain on display at the Lyme Art Association through Sunday, June 9. Art sold both during the opening weekend and through the extended run will continue to generate funds for the beneficiaries.
Tickets are available now at $25 in advance; $30 at the door. Tickets may be purchased at the following locations: Lyme Art Association, Old Lyme Phoebe Griffin Noyes Library, Salon Pure in Old Lyme.
The LOLJWC is celebrating 48 years as a not-for-profit service organization. The club’s objective is to bring together local women interested in community service, fellowship, and cultural, educational and civic advancement. New members are welcome and encouraged to join.
