This Gilded Age Conservatory, with its ribbed half glass dome and Minton tiles, is a great example of early domestic conservatory architecture in the United States. Accessed directly from the Library, this small yet distinctive glass room has been brought to life with a rich installation of silk plants designed by Danna DiElsi of the Silk Touch, and pots and furnishings of the era. 

The Conservatory provides a glimpse into the beauty and diversity of, and passion for, the plant world as seen through the vision of the original owners of the Mansion. Visitors can also take guided tours that showcase the decorative botanical details of architect Detlef Lienau's original mansion design and view displays of selected artifacts throughout the museum from LMMM collections of--dresses, fashion accessories, silver, ceramics, books and more-- with motifs inspired by flora and fauna.

The refurbishing of the Conservatory was made possible in part by the Norwalk Historical Commission and the City of Norwalk. The Conservatory exhibit curated by Kathie Bennewitz is sponsored in part by Paul and Hadley Veeder and the LMMM Foundation. The Conservatory exhibit opens on April 8th and runs through January 6th. General Admission: $10 for adults, $8 for seniors, $6, 8-18.

Wednesday-Sunday, 12, 1, 2, & 3 p.m. ~ Regular Admission Rates apply for viewing and include a guided tour of the Museum.

A new Summer Invitational exhibition entitled, Interpretations will open on July 22, 2015 at the Lockwood-Mathews Mansion Museum, 295 West Avenue, Norwalk, CT. The exhibition will feature works by Katharine Draper, Catherine Caulfield Russell, and Joan Poarch.

The exhibit will run through October 1st with a fundraising reception on September 10th, 5-7 p.m. Tickets are $20 and proceeds will benefit the Museum’s cultural and educational programs. RSVP by September 4th.

Katharine Draper, a Silvermine painter and printmaker for the past 18 years, studied the art of Japanese flower arranging at the renowned Sogetsu School in Japan, after graduating from Briarcliff College and Parsons School of Design, New York. 

“I am always seeking to have my work create deep space and movement whether it is representational or abstract,” said Draper. “My training as an ikebana artist has influenced me to create dimension, texture, and form in my work. I continually try new ways and materials to do this.” Draper is the recipient of several awards and honors including The Ridgewood Art Institute Award, Catharine Lorillard Wolfe Art Club, New Haven Paint and Clay Club, Merit Award, and the Rowayton Arts Center, Best in Show, to name a few. She is a member of numerous regional art societies including the Greenwich Arts Society, New Canaan Art Association, and the Women’s Caucus for Art. 

Catherine Caulfield Russell prefers to paint in “plein-air” in order to capture the ever-changing face of nature, noting the variations of sky, land, motion and changes of light. In her paintings, the landscape is presented in a sweeping expressive state, suspended between earth and sky. Inspired by nature, she explores her subjects in a visceral intuitive manner following the autonomous nature of paint.

Catherine Caulfield Russell earned a BFA from Jacksonville University in Florida and earned her MS from Queens College in New York. 

Exhibitions will include The Lyman Allyn Museum and The National Arts Club. She has been featured in many juried exhibitions and has been the recipient of numerous awards including The Nelda A. Howell Award and the Bernard Allen Award.

Joan Poarch, a former biology, environmental, and marine science teacher, is inspired by New England’s shorelines and rocky tide pools of the Cranberry Islands, Maine, Connecticut’s salt marshes, and Vermont’s woodlands and farms. 

“It is my desire that my art will result in heightened awareness and appreciation of each ecosystem that contributes its own unique design to the diverse patchwork quilt we know as the grand New England landscape” said Poarch.

Ms. Poarch’s work is in private and corporate collections and she has exhibited in many juried shows and galleries including the Pequot Library, Southport, CT, Silvermine School of Art, New Canaan, CT, Rowayton Art Center, Rowayton, CT, SCAN, Newtown, CT, the Lyme Art Association the Mamaroneck Art Guild, Larchmont, NY, and the Southern Vermont Art Center, in Manchester, Vermont, to name a few.  

The Museum’s 2015 cultural and educational programs are made possible in part by generous funding from LMMM’s Founding Patrons, the Estate of Mrs. Cynthia Clark Brown; The Museum’s Distinguished Benefactors, Klaff’s, The Xerox Foundation, and The Maurice Goodman Foundation.

Voices from the Back Stairs: Interpreting Servants’ Lives at Historic House Museums
A Lecture by Dr. Jennifer Pustz
Sunday, October 4, 2015, 2 p.m.
$25 for members, $30 for non-members

Although domestic servants made everyday life in grand homes possible, their identities and roles within the household have long been hidden. This lecture will illustrate the diversity of domestic service in New England over the nineteenth and twentieth centuries by focusing on three Historic New England properties. Period domestic manuals, ephemera, and other general material will also bring the lives of servants and relationships with their employers to the foreground. 

Jennifer Pustz is the museum historian at Historic New England. She holds a Ph.D. in American studies from the University of Iowa and M.A. and B.A. degrees in art history. She is the author of Voices from the Back Stairs: Interpreting Servants’ Lives at Historic House Museums (Northern Illinois University Press, 2010) and a contributing author of Historic New England’s America’s Kitchens publication (2009).

He also directed (and adapted) John Gardner’s novel Nickel Mountain as a feature film (Warner Bros./Lorimar) and Off-Broadway, Hatful of Rain and Secrets.

Mr. Denbaum, a member of the Theatre Artists Workshop, wrote the keynote address after familiarizing himself with the history of the house and private correspondence between LeGrand Lockwood, Treasurer of the NY Stock Exchange, railroad tycoon, and first owner of the Mansion, and his family, friends, and business associates.

Trustee and Gala Co-chair Lynne Byington said, “New England history will come alive when LeGrand Lockwood reveals the details of Norwalk’s own National Historic Landmark. For the first time ever, our honored guests will travel to ‘The Stairs Below’ as we celebrate a memorable evening that supports education and history.”

Guests will also be invited to preview the Mansion’s two new exhibits opening to the general public on Oct. 14, entitled, The Stairs Below: The Mansion’s Domestic Servants, 1868-1938 and Lenticular Views: Journeys through Time, Space, and Emotions by Miggs Burroughs.

The Stairs Below: The Mansion’s Domestic Servants, 1868-1938
Curated by Kathleen Motes Bennewitz
Opening October 14, 2015 through October 30, 2016, 12-4 p.m.
Wednesday –Sunday, 12-4 p.m. ~ General Admission: $10 for adults, $8 for Seniors, $6, 8-18

For the first time in the history of the Lockwood-Mathews Mansion Museum, its Servants’ Quarters will open to the public and feature a new exhibition entitled, The Stairs Below: The Mansion’s Domestic Servants, 1868-1938. This exhibition will open on Oct. 14, 2015, 12-4 p.m. and run through Oct. 30, 2016, with a preview at the LMMM Gala on Oct. 10th, 295 West Avenue, Norwalk, CT.

“During the Victorian era, the Mansion needed a small army to build it and run it,” said Patsy Brescia, LMMM Chairman of the Board. “We are thrilled to have an opportunity to bring the servants’ story to our communities with this highly educational exhibition.” 

Telling the story of the Lockwood-Mathews Mansion’s workforce is overdue, yet timely. Discussions nationwide on issues such as immigration and social justice, as well as the popular TV series Downton Abbey, have audiences visiting this landmark often asking about its servants and their lodgings. 

The Mansion’s domestic servants’ rooms “equal the chambers of a first class hotel,” said The New York Sun in 1869. LeGrand Lockwood’s forward-thinking spirit behind these quarters offered momentary repose from the physical demands of a seven-day work week and 10-hour shifts for those living under the same roof as the family. By following the servants’ paths through the mansion, visitors will experience three distinct worlds—public, family, and service—and the social etiquette strictly enforced during the mansion’s seven decades as a private residence. “This exciting, new exhibition will create a very engaging experience for all of our visitors,” said LMMM Executive Director Susan Gilgore, “bringing history to life and ingeniously threading together this National Historic Landmark’s fascinating and multi-faceted past in a thought-provoking and powerful way.” 

Little was left behind to reconstruct the servants’ lives and work here. The Stairs Below, curated by Kathleen Motes Bennewitz, aims to make real the ‘invisible’ staff, especially the Irish immigrants and African-Americans, whose livelihoods depended on the fortune and tolerance of the elite. 

The Museum’s exhibition, The Stairs Below: The Mansion’s Domestic Servants 1868-1938, is made possible in part by generous funding from the CT Humanities and CTC&G. The Museum’s 2015 cultural and educational programs are made possible in part by generous funding from LMMM’s Founding Patrons: The Estate of Cynthia Clark Brown; The Museum’s Distinguished Benefactors: Klaff’s, Xerox Foundation and The Maurice Goodman Foundation.

He designed a Commemorative U.S. Postage Stamp, an iconic Easter Egg for the Reagans’ White House, and four TIME Magazine covers, one of which, along with the Easter Egg reside in the Smithsonian Institution.

Recently, he has won much acclaim for his work with lenticular imagery, including several one-man shows in Fairfield County galleries and libraries and Tunnel Vision, his permanent lenticular installation in downtown Westport, has received unanimous raves. www.tunnelvisionart.com His first book, The What If Book of Questions, published last year was also met with critical acclaim. Burroughs has been twice honored as a Paul Harris Fellow by the Westport Rotary; he has been one of the YMCA’s Faces of Achievement, CLASP of Westport Volunteer of the Year as well as STAR of Norwalk, among others.
