Sculpting lionfish

Published July 16. 2013 10:42AM

Did Keith Haring visit the Scottish Hebrides to peer at wild goats? Did Jackson Pollock go to the Spanish Pyrenees to observe bearded vultures? No - and you can rest assured Roy Lichtenstein never went to the Caribbean to chart reef sharks in their underwater habitat. Artist Kitty Wales, on the other hand, has done all of these things and more. Consider her new show, "Kitty Wales: Lionfish," which opens Saturday with a reception from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Friday in New London's Lyman Allyn Art Museum. Inspired by animal studies in their natural habitats, the sculptor conceptualized an art installation for the Lyman Allyn focused on the Lionfish (see image, here). The show runs through Jan. 5. The Lyman Allyn is at 625 Williams St., New London. Hours are 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Tues.-Sat. and 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Sun. Admission for reception is free to members, $5 non-members; (860) 443-2545,
