On January 15 at 11:30 a.m. the Mattatuck Museum, www.MattatuckMuseum.org located on 144 Main Street in Waterbury Connecticut will be hosting a discussion with author Eleanor Phillips Brackbill, the author of An Uncommon Cape: Researching the Histories and Mysteries of a Property. The book and discussion will give you tips on how to trace the history of your home and how to tell the story of your home.

The Mattatuck Museum of Art will be featuring the artwork of Charles Yoder from January 19, 2014 through March 2, 2014. This solo show by Yoder is called Dancing in the Moonlight: Nocturnes by Charles Yodor and exemplifies the forest at night and the play of light and shadows between the trees.

The opening reception for this show will be held at the Mattatuck Museum on January 19 from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m.

The artwork by Yoder for this show was inspired by winter images he saw in his backyard in the evening. Yoder became fascinated by the moonlight piercing through the winter branches of pine trees and the variety of abstract shadows that they created in the snow covered forest.

Yoder was born in Germany but was raised in the United States. He makes his home in Tribeca New York and was educated at the University of Maine and Pratt Institute in Brooklyn New York. Currently he teaches printmaking at the School of Visual Arts.

The Mattatuck Museum is open Tuesday - Saturday from 10 a.m. - 5 p.m. and offers free parking behind the museum at Park Place. For additional program information www.MattatuckMuseum.org
