Lewis Bryden is an American artist known nationally for his plein air landscape paintings, his perceptive portraits and figure paintings, and for his marble, bronze and terracotta sculpture. He is a realist artist who celebrates the joy he finds in nature and the world where he lives in art.

Bryden created a suite of works over forty years devoted to a theme of nostalgic summer idylls on America’s “playgrounds by the sea.” This exhibit is comprised of seventeen paintings from this series.
