Come see our new exhibit of the work of the Lynn Beach Painters.
The Lynn Beach Painters were seven significant American artists who shared a similar technique and interest in the beaches, tidal marshes, and working fisherfolk of the Lynn and Swampscott shorelines. The seven-Nathaniel L. Berry, Edward Burrill, William Partridge Burpee, C.E.L. Green, T. Clark Oliver, Edward A. Page, and Charles H. Woodbury-developed a particular style of regional impressionism and form the group now known as the Lynn Beach Painters.
Now on exhibit until the end of the summer.
Todd Gieg’s long awaited diorama of the Narrow Gauge Railroad is almost complete and will be installed sometime later this month. The artist is putting the finishing touches on this truly amazing piece that has to be seen to be believed. Watch the Lynn Museum facebook page for updates!
