Mushroom Drawing as Knowing at Western Cider

June 14 @ 5:00 pm 7:00 pm

Hey all! This is a collaboration with Erynn of Moss Creek Studios that we are really looking forward to.

**Behold the face of your beloved and behold the face of the universe.**

Learning your mushrooms can be a deeply creative process! If perusing through id books feels clunky or you are looking for another way to deepen your relationship with the mushrooms you are seeing, this is gathering is for you!

Where: Western Cider in the Gallery Room 501 N California St, Missoula, MT 59802

When: June 14th 5-7pm

Cost: Free and open to all!

Bring your art supplies and your friends, and get ready to explore a handful of the detailed faces of this massive kin-dom beneath our feet. We will have a dialogue about mushroom identification, tips for foraging and safety, fungal morphology, and musings on connection. Feel free to bring in mushrooms you have recently found as well! Folks may attend part or all of this, and stay later into the evening.

Inspired by their own imagination and wilderness experiences in the northwest, Up Moss Creek Studio was created by Erynn in 2021 as a realm to explore a diversity of art mediums as many different desires of creation coexist in their mine.

They are currently based in Florence, MT, where they share a small studio with their dog, Dagwood.
