NORWALK, Conn. -- If beauty is in the eye of the beholder, then an upcoming exhibit of lenticular art at the Lockwood-Mathews Mansion Museum in Norwalk will certainly bring that idiom to life.
The new show, “Lenticular Views: Journey through Time, Space, and Emotions,” features works by lifelong Westport resident and graphic artist Miggs Burroughs.
The lenticular process creates an illusion of depth, or the ability to change or move as the image is viewed from different angles. In other words, what viewers see depends on where they are standing.
Burroughs said the process allows him to explore images in a “somewhat cinematic way.”
The viewer is “enlisted as a collaborator, controlling the speed, sequence, and ultimately, the significance of the changes that occur,” he said, adding that the images will only be as meaningful as the stories the viewers bring to them.
The show, curated by artist and designer Gail Ingis-Claus, opens Oct. 14 and runs through Jan. 3.
A preview of the show is set for Oct. 10 at the LMMM Gala. There will also be a fundraising reception from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Oct. 22.
Tickets for the fundraiser are $10 for members and $20 for non-members. Proceeds will benefit the museum’s cultural and educational programs. The museum is asking for RSVPs by Sept. 16.
The Lockwood-Mathews Mansion Museum is located at 295 West Ave., Norwalk, Conn.
Tours are offered Wednesdays through Sundays, at noon, 1 p.m., 2 p.m., and 3 p.m. Admission is $10 for adults, $8 for seniors, and $6 for children. Children under 8 are admitted free.
