A Celebration of Black History

2 - 4 PM February 3, 2018

We're hosting an event for Black Histotry Month that includes the work of contemporary artists, as well as an exhibit of prints tracing the history of black American art through slavery into the civil rights movement. 

For example, the historical exhibit includes the work of Edward Mitchell Bannister.  When the judges in the 1876 Philadelphia Centennial Exposition found out that he was black, they tried to take back the prize they awarded him for his painting, "Under the Oaks".  Justice was only served because his fellow artists—the ones he beat in the competition—stood up for him, and the prize was reinstated.

The contemporary work features artist Malinda Ware, as well as the creations of Shanita Artson, Amber Doherty, Ed Hicks, Teddy Wilson, and Jennifer Doherty.

And there is a concurrent group show including Mef Gannon, Audrey Lanham, Stephanie McClure, Dixie Rich, and Joan Standora.

This event will include complimentary refreshments and live music.  The themed Exhibit will be on display through February 11.  It’s 4 – 6 PM on February 3, 2018 at the Artists’ Market Community Center, 114 Richardson Avenue, Shohola, PA. 

This Event is funded, in part, by the Richard L. Snyder Fund, administered by the Greater Pike Community Foundation.
