Another CTSA paint out— Wednesday, October 21

CTSA (a.k.a, the Thursday plein air group) has been invited to paint with the Madison Art Society's plein air group (a.k.a., Jay's group) next Wednesday.   (Note: And CTSA will still paint at the Florence Griswold on Thursday morning to take advantage of this spectacular fall weather).

The MAS group painted at Wettemann Farm a couple of weeks ago.  The owners are simply some of the most generous, kind, and gregarious people who love farming, horses, and chicken (fresh eggs to buy).  They sell maple syrup in the spring from their own trees.  It's a magical old farm.


From Madison area and points east—take route 80 towards Branford. Go though the junction of 80 and 77 (Dudley Farm corner). Continue on route 80 through the next light and in about a mile take a right on County Rd. It has a V shaped entrance with a grassy area in the center.

**In a half mile you will hit a fork / junction with  stop sign facing the other direction.  Go left on to West Street - clearly marked with a street sign.  In 1.2 miles Wettemann Farm will be on the left.  Horses, and a large metal rounded storage garage for equipment etc. You won't miss it. Park along the sides of the entrance along the road up to the house on the right.

From New Haven and points west—take I-91 to exit 8.  The exit ramp lands on route 80.  Head east on route 80 for ~8 miles.  Take a left onto County Road and follow the above directions from
the **.  (Agway is about 300 yards before the turn for County Road.)  

From the north, there are other options using either route 22 or route 77.
