    1. ART EXHIBIT: “The Loves of Aaron Burr: Portraits in Corsetry & Binding”
      10:00 am – 10:00 am

      “The Loves of Aaron Burr,” by artist Camilla Huey resurrects the voices of nine ‘women of letters’ involved in the adventurous life of Aaron Burr — the most notorious of our founding fathers.  Historically, the 18th century woman was viewed as a body without a voice.  By combining the letters, books and ephemera – each bound within a period appropriate corset, rather than bound in a book – the corsets become each woman’s “body” of work.  Huey’s unusual portraits reanimate the voices of these exceptional and forgotten women of the Colonial and Federal period.  This is the first time contemporary art has been integrated into this historic mansion. Members Reception, May 3, 2016 6:00 – 9:00pm May 3 – June 30, 2016 Tuesday – Saturday 10:00am – 4:00pm (last tour starts at 4:00pm) Sunday 1:00 – 4:00pm (last tour starts at 4:00pm)

    2. ART EXHIBIT: R. C. May Photography – PAUL SHAMBROOM: Lost
      10:00 am – 5:00 pm

      In his recent series Lost, Paul Shambroom photographs weathered posters of missing pets, digitally enhancing aspects of the ghostly images. He abstracts the owners’ pleas into snippets of “found” poetry that speak to our deep connection with animals: “She is quite shy and doesn’t answer to her name.” The sense of love and of loss is palpable. Museum Hours: Tue-Thu: 10 am – 5 pm; Fri: 10 am – 8 pm; Sat & Sun: 12 – 5 pm; closed Mondays. image credit: PAUL SHAMBROOM, Daisy, 2013, pigmented inkjet print on paper, courtesy of the artist

    1. ART EXHIBIT: “The Loves of Aaron Burr: Portraits in Corsetry & Binding”
      10:00 am – 10:00 am

      “The Loves of Aaron Burr,” by artist Camilla Huey resurrects the voices of nine ‘women of letters’ involved in the adventurous life of Aaron Burr — the most notorious of our founding fathers.  Historically, the 18th century woman was viewed as a body without a voice.  By combining the letters, books and ephemera – each bound within a period appropriate corset, rather than bound in a book – the corsets become each woman’s “body” of work.  Huey’s unusual portraits reanimate the voices of these exceptional and forgotten women of the Colonial and Federal period.  This is the first time contemporary art has been integrated into this historic mansion. Members Reception, May 3, 2016 6:00 – 9:00pm May 3 – June 30, 2016 Tuesday – Saturday 10:00am – 4:00pm (last tour starts at 4:00pm) Sunday 1:00 – 4:00pm (last tour starts at 4:00pm)

      10:00 am – 5:00 pm

He abstracts the owners’ pleas into snippets of “found” poetry that speak to our deep connection with animals: “She is quite shy and doesn’t answer to her name.” The sense of love and of loss is palpable. Museum Hours: Tue-Thu: 10 am – 5 pm; Fri: 10 am – 8 pm; Sat & Sun: 12 – 5 pm; closed Mondays. image credit: PAUL SHAMBROOM, Daisy, 2013, pigmented inkjet print on paper, courtesy of the artist

    3. ART EXHIBIT: R. C. May Photography – PAUL SHAMBROOM: Lost
      10:00 am – 5:00 pm

      In his recent series Lost, Paul Shambroom photographs weathered posters of missing pets, digitally enhancing aspects of the ghostly images. He abstracts the owners’ pleas into snippets of “found” poetry that speak to our deep connection with animals: “She is quite shy and doesn’t answer to her name.” The sense of love and of loss is palpable. Museum Hours: Tue-Thu: 10 am – 5 pm; Fri: 10 am – 8 pm; Sat & Sun: 12 – 5 pm; closed Mondays. image credit: PAUL SHAMBROOM, Daisy, 2013, pigmented inkjet print on paper, courtesy of the artist

    1. ART EXHIBIT: “The Loves of Aaron Burr: Portraits in Corsetry & Binding”
      10:00 am – 10:00 am

      “The Loves of Aaron Burr,” by artist Camilla Huey resurrects the voices of nine ‘women of letters’ involved in the adventurous life of Aaron Burr — the most notorious of our founding fathers.  Historically, the 18th century woman was viewed as a body without a voice.  By combining the letters, books and ephemera – each bound within a period appropriate corset, rather than bound in a book – the corsets become each woman’s “body” of work.  Huey’s unusual portraits reanimate the voices of these exceptional and forgotten women of the Colonial and Federal period.  This is the first time contemporary art has been integrated into this historic mansion. Members Reception, May 3, 2016 6:00 – 9:00pm May 3 – June 30, 2016 Tuesday – Saturday 10:00am – 4:00pm (last tour starts at 4:00pm) Sunday 1:00 – 4:00pm (last tour starts at 4:00pm)
