Convergence: Meditations on American Landscape – Guest curator Jennifer Terzian has chosen paintings from the Mattatuck’s permanent collection, and teamed them with works by seven contemporary artists to explore landscape painting as a continuum of American art practice and a vehicle for cultural and social expression. On view through January 13, 2019.
Natalie Van Vleck: True to Her Art, Life & Land – Organized by guest curator Marc Chabot and the Flanders Nature Center & Land Trust, this exhibition presents more than 50 paintings, works on paper, hand carved wood frames, furnishings and archival material by the American Modernist artist Natalie Van Vleck (1901-1981), longtime resident of Woodbury. On view through February 24, 2019.
Supported in part through a gift from Brass Axe Capital to underwrite exhibitions in the Munger Room.
Fred Staloff: A Selection of Works from The Butler Institute of American Art – The exhibition comes from The Butler Institute which is today the chief repository of artist Fred Staloff’s 60 year career work and features still lifes, landscapes, portraits and abstract compositions.

The exhibition at the Mattatuck Museum is supported in part through a gift from Raymond Learsy to underwrite exhibitions in The Lab.
Grazing Goats: Lauren Booth – Lauren Booth created an Electric Menagerie, illuminated sculptural trail including neon birds, dragon, a flea circus, and more. The goats grazing in the Mattatuck Garden were created for that exhibition. On view through February 24, 2019.
