In Our Gallery
Some artists are simply driven to draw and paint what they see around them. Lorraine Ryan is one of them. She began as a small child and has been an artist all her life. Ryan is a graduate of the Parsons School of Design, and a member of the Arts Student League of New York.
Her watercolors and acrylics range from large complex still lifes, to landscapes, to lush florals, to coastal seascapes. Her current focus is Connecticut farms and barns, hoping to raise awareness to their unfortunate and rapid disappearance.
Her paintings have been collected in the U.S. and the U.K. In 2005, Ryan was honored to be juried into the prestigious Mystic Seaport’s 26th Annual International Art Exhibition, with her painting, “It’s A Keeper.”
“I have never indulged in abstract intellectual notions of art, but rather I have merely tried to capture the things I enjoy observing.”
Merryall is proud to share and exhibit this fine artist’s work throughout its 2022 season. All paintings on exhibit at Merryall are available for purchase.
