FREE EVENTS

Artists' Market Community Center hosts many events open to the public and free of charge--often with complimentary light refreshments.  We host a free reception the first Saturday of every month (March through December) with music and complimentary refreshments. 

We look forward to meeting you at any of these free events below.





"Women of Song" Event

The history of women in Western music is an embarrassment.  Most of the time, women were expected to perform music and teach music, but not create it.  As recently as 1880, Chicago music critic George P. Upton wrote that due to their "biological disposition" women lacked the innate creativity to compose good music.  

The "Women of Song" Event includes a presentation of images tracing the history of women in music, a discussion of the special challenges facing women composers, and a live performance by local singer/songwriters.

"Women have been shut out of rock music because it began as a way to express raw emotions like anger and lust, and these were considered ‘unladylike’," notes Mef Gannon, half of the band Mef and Angela.  "The world still finds it hard to accept that we can get at least as pissed off and horny as the boys." 

Mef and her partner Angela Adams will be leading the discussion at "Women of Song".  The images cover virtually unknown, but extremely gifted, women from the Medieval, Renaissance, Baroque, Classical, and Romantic periods.  

Running concurrently is an exhibit of local artists, including Eloy Argueso, Isabelle Bajda, Jane Brennan, Rebecca Esposito, Mef Gannon, Debbie Gioello, Adrienne Markowitz, Stephanie McClure, Susan Miiller, Warren Pardi, Joseph Petrosi, Dixie Rich, Nick Roes, Kelly Ryan, Joan Standora, and Elva Zingaro.

It's 4 - 6 PM, August 5, 2017, at the Artists' Market Community Center, 114 Richardson Avenue, Shohola, PA 18458. Please join us for complimentary refreshments, and an event you’ll never forget.
