The exhibition features approximately 80 prints from illustrated weeklies and journals by American Master, Winslow Holmer. The works were selected from a gift of engravings recently donated to the MattatuckMuseum by Fairfield collector David Jones and his wife Ann. This group of engravings will be complemented by several paintings on loan from Connecticut institutions, including Yale University Art Gallery, Wadsworth Atheneum, and New Britain Museum of American Art. This overview of Homer’s rich career as an illustrator will be presented thematically. It will reflect the concerns of a nation during a period of significant social and political change.
As the winner of The MATT’s 2017 MIXMASTER Juried Members Exhibition, Laure Dunne was selected for a solo show in The Lab. She has had a passion for fine art, design and photography throughout her career. Her professional work focuses on interior design and real estate but her art photographs are oftentimes the result and record of her travel. This exhibition of 25 photos includes shots from Oregon, Maine, New York, and Connecticut. Thematically organized between two subjects, trains and trees, Dunne’s clear, clean aesthetic is evident in these compositionally strong and dramatic images.
Supported in part by a gift from Raymond Learsy to underwrite exhibitions in The Lab.
