In addition to touring this magnificent mansion the Lockwood Mathews Mansion Museum on 295 West Ave. in Norwalk in collaboration with the Rowayton Arts Center, will present Gilded Age Redux, a juried group exhibition through Jan. 7, 2018, 12-4 p.m.

This exhibit of original artwork is focused on today's interpretation of the 19th century Gilded Age. Lockwood-Mathews Mansion Museum invited RAC artists to interpret this turbulent yet seminal period of recent American history and draw parallels with today's social, political, and economic environment. The resulting works selected for this exhibit span the spectrum, from traditional-style still life paintings, to posed photographic references, to purely abstract gestural images, demonstrating the rich vein of material that the Gilded Age contains.

Juried and curated by Trustees Julyen Norman and Gail Ingis, the exhibition will feature artists: Sandra Farley Aldrich, Bridget Cusack, Dawn Dahl, Jo Ann Davidson, Katherine Draper, Laure Dunne, Sawyer Hanlon, Judy Katz, Emily Kelting, Dana Laird, Heidi Lewis Coleman, Judy Noel, Pamela Tucker, and Richard Ventre.

The Lockwood-Mathews Mansion Museum is a National Historic Landmark. The exhibit will be on view as part of LMMM's tours. For more information on schedules and programs please visit: www.lockwoodmathewsmansion.com, e-mail info@lockwoodmathewsmansion.com, or call 203-838-9799.
