At the annual meeting of members June 24 the Bruce Museum elected two new members to their board of trustees, announced the recipients of the employee of the year award, the executive director’s award and the chairman’s award and unveiled a new acquisition for the museum’s permanent collection.

The museum’s Board of Trustees Class of 2017 includes two new trustees and five returning. The two newly elected trustees are Allison Brant, director of the Brant Foundation Art Study Center in Greenwich, and Lucile M. Glasebrook, a longtime member and supporter of the Bruce and its committees.

The five returning members of the board class of 2017 are Aundrea B. Amine, George E. Crapple, Pamela H. Lewanda, James B. Lockhart III and Martha R. Zoubek. The museum’s board of trustees will be chaired for the next two years by longtime Bruce supporter Robert H. Lawrence, Jr.

Employee of the Year was awarded to Justine Matteis, manager of the Bruce Museum store, by Peter Sutton, the museum’s executive director. The Executive Director’s Award, also presented by Dr. Sutton, was awarded to Patricia Chadwick, outgoing chair of the board, and the Chairman’s Award was presented to Susan Mahoney by Ms. Chadwick.

Dr. Sutton also unveiled a new addition to the museum’s permanent collection at the meeting. The Bruce Museum received a landscape painting by wildlife and landscape artist and Bruce Museum exhibition preparator Sean Murtha. The piece comes as the culmination to the exhibition Pasture to Pond: Connecticut Impressionism and its associated programming, and thanks to a generous grant from Connecticut Office of the Arts, the painting, May Moonrise, Davis Pond was commissioned by the Bruce.
