CURRENT AND UPCOMING BYRDCLIFFE EVENTS

The Woodstock Byrdcliffe Guild has an exciting event schedule for this coming year. Please keep checking for updates and ticket sales.

PAGEANT OF INCONCEIVABLES
Pageant of Inconceivables is an exhibition of ceramic works that operate/act as inner portraits rather than solely functional objects. The exhibition focuses on works that use clay as their medium, and that are inspired by anthropomorphic associations. Curated by Portia Munson and Katharine Umsted. Read more

HIKING IN THE SHADE ON BYRDCLIFFE/MT. GUARDIAN TRAIL
Come walk the Byrdcliffe/Mt.Guardian Trails with Dave Holden of Woodstock Trails. The trail is very steep in sections, requiring sturdy shoes with good ankle-support (waterproof is always best). Another must-have is water, for yourself and your pet (dogs are allowed but leash-only). Heavy, steady rains and/or a thunderstorm will automatically cancel a hike. The hikes start at 10:00 am and average 2 1/2 to 3 hours in duration. PRE-REGISTRATION REQUIRED, GROUP LIMITED TO 12. Read more
