Vanessa Michalak, a lover of the great outdoors, envisioned Gloucester’s Historic Dogtown as the perfect place to settle her easel and paint plein-air style. A generous tree provided support; sticks and stones became small shelves for materials. During the spring and summer of 2019, the artist trekked a mile into the woods carrying her supplies. These daily walks became part of her painting process as she moved along paths in search of inspirational spots. By summer’s end, she had produced dozens of paintings. Feeling the need to share her work and experience with others, the idea of the Dogtown Art Show, a Walk in the Woods was born. It took place on the 26th of October 2019. Michalak exhibited her plein-air paintings along the trails in Dogtown and invited the public to view her canvases while walking the paths.
