Stories of Resilience: Encountering Racism
Through April 11, 2020

This engaging exhibit highlights the lives of five exceptional residents of New London County, past and present—attorney Lonnie Braxton, Rev. Florence Clarke, Sonalysts Board member Donetta Hodge, Coast Guard Commander (Ret.) Merle Smith, and 19th century freed slave and teacher Ichabod Pease. Stories of Resilience showcases their determination, bravery and strength in the face of personal and systemic racism. Developed from the Jewish Federation of Eastern CT’s Encountering Differences Program, the exhibit paints a picture of remarkable successes in the face of daunting obstacles through personal photographs, artifacts, and video testimonies.

This exhibition is generously supported in part by the Frank Loomis Palmer Fund, Bank of America, Trustee.

NEXUS: Contemporary Art From Leading Miami Collections
February 22 through December 6, 2020

Opening Reception: Saturday, February 22, 7 - 9 PM

In celebration of its 70th anniversary, the Lowe Art Museum will feature works of art from leading Miami collectors. Exhibited together in the Museum's Ben Tobin Galleries, these works will embody our city's now irrefutable importance in the contemporary art world as well as the intimate connection these collectors share with the artists whose work they steward, with one another, and with the city at large.

A Century of Creativity: Connecticut Art from the New Haven Paint & Clay Club
January 31 – May 10, 2020

Showcasing over 100 years of Connecticut art, this exhibition of paintings, prints, and drawings explores our surroundings—the landscapes, people, and objects that help shape our sense of place. What makes Connecticut special and how has the region’s identity shifted over time? A Century of Creativity draws on the permanent collection of the New Haven Paint & Clay Club, one of the oldest art clubs in New England. The exhibition celebrates the beauty and range of fine art produced in this region since 1900.

Brought to Light: European Paintings from the Collection
September 20, 2020 -

This exhibition showcases the Lyman Allyn’s collection of European paintings, highlighting a selection of portraits, history paintings, religious scenes, landscapes, still-lifes, and genre scenes from the early Renaissance through the 19th century. Although European paintings have been part of the collection since the museum’s founding in 1932, the galleries currently emphasize American art, with European paintings infrequently on view.

Brought to Light offers the opportunity to reexamine the museum’s European paintings and share their rich stories with the public. The paintings reflect research and consultations with subject specialists, with the goal of advancing scholarship and better understanding these treasures.
Juan van der Hamen y Leon, Still Life with Cherries, oil on canvas, early 17th Century, LAAM, Gift of N.J. Leigh, 1958.105.
