Join the Mattatuck Museum as they celebrate 100 years of presenting art with a lecture by Museum Curator, Dr. Cynthia Roznoy on Wednesday, January 23, 2013 at 2:00 p.m.

Dr. Roznoy will lead an insightful walk-through of the Museum’s 100th anniversary exhibition that includes work by William Merritt Chase, George Inness, and J. Alden Weir among others. 100 Years of Presenting Art, A Celebration of the Museum’s First Exhibition recreates the beauty and spirit of the original exhibit in portraits, landscapes and allegorical art. Founded in 1877, the Mattatuck Historical Society held its first meetings in various members’ homes, in offices and in public rooms. In 1911 the Society purchased property at 119 West Main Street which had been the home of Mr. Greene Kendrick, mayor of Waterbury in 1882 and 1883. In 1912 the Society built a three story addition to the property to house new exhibit spaces and on November 16 opened the gallery with An Exhibition of Paintings by American Artists on loan from New York’s Montrose Gallery. The museum has recreated the beauty and spirit of the original exhibition.
