SPRING 2015


Quotations: The Art of George Deem
April 9 - May 17, 2015


Opening Reception: Thursday, April 9, 5:30-7:30 p.m.

Painter George Deem (1932-2008) made art about art. He took iconic images of the Old and New Masters such as Vermeer, Matisse and Eakins and interpreted them with modern wit and playfulness. Most of the exhibition’s 35 works are drawn from a gift generously donated to the Mattatuck Museum by the Estate of George Deem in 2013.






The Gate to Hell: Photographs by Avery Danziger
April 5 - May 17, 2015


Opening Reception: Thursday, April 9, 5:30-7:30 p.m.

In 2013, Avery Danziger traveled to the heart of the Karakum Desert in Turkmenistan, where for five nights he photographed a flaming crater of natural gas. The subjects in this exhibit of 20 large-scale works range from the poetic splendor of moonlit shots that capture the crater’s golden aura to close-up views of flaming geysers, glorious and horrific at the same time.






Signature Moments: Historic Letters and Documents
April 9 - November 15, 2015


Opening Reception: Thursday, April 9, 5:30 p.m.

An exhibit of historic signatures from the Museum's archives including letters from Benjamin Franklin, George Washington, P.T. Barnum, J. Edgar Hoover, Alexander Calder, and many others. The collection will be exhibited in the history gallery.

In Search of Charles Island
August 14, 2014 – May 24, 2015


Opening Reception: Thursday, August 14, 5:30-7:30 p.m.

Milford has been a popular vacation spot for residents of the Naugatuck Valley for over 150 years. Mid-nineteenth century, Waterbury button manufacturer Elizur Prichard owned the island, where he and his daughter, Sarah Prichard ran a hotel resort. Miss Prichard later donated the family’s papers to the Mattatuck Museum. Photographs, ephemera and historical objects tell the colorful story of Charles Island, including the legend of a pirate and buried treasure!
