Zoe Matthiessen will guide a tour through her “Gallery in the Woods,” a trail through East Rock Park beginning at the covered bridge at the Eli Whitney Museum and ending at East Rock Road. Matthiessen has painted about 25 scenes along this trail, often tacking up a print for a passerby to snatch as they walk along. She also hosts a regular scavenger hunt through the New Haven Independent— Picture This.
For this event, she will tack up all her prints, at their corresponding locations. Highlights include wildly deformed trees such as Swamp Thing and massive root formations such as Tree-rantula. Random woods creatures will also be hidden along the trail. Pine cones and tree sap will be served.
Rain Date: October 22, 3pm
