Sean Elliot, photographer for New London’s The Sun, came up with some wonderful pictures from Tuesday’s show at the Florence Griswold Museum.
Since it’s vacation week for many schools, some organizations provide entertaining and educational events, so it was my turn on Tuesday to return to this gem of museum in Old Lyme, CT. FloGris was a woman who fostered a colony of impressionist painters some hundred years ago. They have a small, but mighty art gallery as well as the Griswold house, decorated as it was back then. The artists painted on the door boards as gifts to Florence. I did two sold out family shows in the Arts Barn, and it was fun. A photographer from The Sun, in New London, got some great shots of the kids. Molly invited me back for two songwriting sessions during August for 4th – 6th grade students. They’ve tried painters, sculptors, etc., but this will be a good time to try impressionist song writing. That sounds like fun.
