Event Details

Laura Dunne – Passing By | July 30 – September 3

As the winner of The MATT’s 2017 MIXMASTER Juried Members Exhibition, Laure Dunne won the opportunity for a solo show in The Lab. She has had a passion for fine art, design and photography throughout her career. After earning a BFA at Indiana University/Bloomington in the areas of design and photography, she honed her photographic capabilities at NYU and at the International Center of Photography in New York City. Her professional work focuses on interior design and real estate but her art photographs are oftentimes the results and records of her travels. This exhibition of 25 photos includes shots from Oregon, Maine, New York and Connecticut. Thematically organized between two subjects, trains and trees, Dunne’s clear, clean aesthetic is evident in these compositionally strong and dramatic images.


The Mattatuck Museum is an art and regional history museum on the Green in downtown Waterbury, starting out as a historical society in 1877. The Museum opened its first display hall in 1912 and has been exhibiting art ever since. The museum collects and exhibits American art and cultural history – with a focus on the history of the Naugatuck Valley and the artists of Connecticut.

We use our history collections to tell the stories of our community and partner with neighborhood associations, ethnic organizations and manufacturing groups. Our art galleries display the work of American masters associated with our state and include Anni Albers, Alexander Calder and Frederic Church. The Mattatuck also presents more than 25 changing exhibitions every year featuring significant artist of the past as well as today’s contemporary artists. The Museum is also home to a button gallery displaying 10,000 miniature works of art collected from around the globe and donated to the Museum in 1999 by the Waterbury Companies (formerly Waterbury Button Company).
