FREE EVENTS

Artists Market Community Center offers time and space to artists, poets, musicians, and performers, to spend a day away from their usual environment and obligations, so you can see them in action.  We’ve scheduled some of the most talented and popular artists in the area, and you can feel free to watch, ask questions, heckle, or participate!

AMCC also hosts many other events open to the public and free of charge.  For example, we host a free reception the first Saturday of every month, year round, with complimentary refreshments and a presentation related to the monthly theme.  Check them out below.

 




A Celebration of Black History - February 2, 2019

“Sweet are the uses of adversity,
Which, like the toad, ugly and venomous,
Wears yet a precious jewel in his head.”

This quote from Shakespeare’s As You Like It sums up the spirit of the Celebration of Black History planned for February 2.  In 1867, Edward Mitchell Bannister read these words in the New York Herald: "…the Negro seems to have an appreciation for art while being manifestly unable to produce it." Less than ten years later, he became the first African-American to with a national art award.

The contemporary artist featured at this event, Hassie Brodie, has also overcome much adversity, and is a shining example that all things are possible through a strong spirit and a supportive community.  Her artwork reflects her history of struggles and triumphs. 

Hassina will speak about her journey as an artist and woman of color.  Other local artists celebrating Black History Month at this event include returning artists Malinda Ware, Shanita Artson, and Teddy Williams, as well as Carolyn Holmes Hood.  

The Event also includes a historical exhibit tracing the history of black artists in America, and the work of other contemporary artists.  There will be live Haitian folk music by Carmelle Marsh, and complimentary refreshments.

The reception is at the Artists’ Market Community Center, 114 Richardson Avenue, Shohola, PA, from 4 – 6 PM on February 2, 2019.

Event Coordinator: Ari Mir-Pontier

Made possible, in part, with funding from the Richard L. Snyder Fund, administered by the Greater Pike Community Foundation.





Celebrating the Four Seasons - March 2, 2019

"Celebrating the Four Seasons " Event Coordinators: Alexis Siroc and Claudine Luchsinger.  Nestled between the Pocono and Catskill Mountains, the Delaware River is the only undammed major river in the USA.  And we're privileged to host four distinct seasons.  What better time to look toward the upcoming seasons for warmth and inspiration than this long, cold winter.

If you are interested in this event as an artist, performer, poet, or musician, here is the CALL FOR ART
