Studio 80 + Sculpture Grounds is situated on 4.5 acres on the Lieutenant River in the historic district of Old Lyme, Connecticut. A center for the arts in Connecticut, and the birthplace of American Impressionism, Old Lyme is now also a center for abstract sculptural works from Studio 80.
Located next door to the Lyme Academy College of Fine Arts, where realistic figurative painting and sculpture are taught, Studio 80 + Sculpture Grounds embraces the other traditional fine art establishments within this town while stepping “outside the box” to create and display abstract sculptural works inspired by nature.
Studio 80 is the personal working space of Gilbert V. Boro. The 3500 sq. foot building was designed by Boro to complement the architectural design of the Lyme Art Academy. Complete with a loft exhibition gallery, the studio is not to be missed.
Studio 80 is open to the public by appointment. Come meet the sculptor and learn about his work. Large and small scale pieces are on display in the gallery.
We invite you to visit Studio 80 + Sculpture Grounds. A look at this peaceful, shaded retreat is a must any time of the year.
Sculpture Grounds is open to the public 9 am - 5 pm daily. Children are welcome and admission is free.
