Mermaid Parade—August 4    3:30 PM

Inspired by the "Coney Island in Shohola Event" scheduled for that same day, a group of artists and art lovers have decided to march dressed as mermaids, King Neptune, or Coney Island Freaks.

Leading the Parade will be Event Coordinator Rose Chateau, in a gorilla suit and with her live banana ball python snake, "Chiquita".  Anyone who would like to participate is invited to gather at the Artists’ Market Community Center, 114 Richardson Avenue, Shohola, PA at 3 PM on August 4, 2018.  At 3:30 Rose will lead the group along Richardson Avenue to Stonedock Road, and make a right onto Rohman’s Road.  The Parade Route continues to the end of Rohmans Road and makes a right onto Chauncey Thomas Road, then ends where it began at the Artists’ Market.

"It’s not a long route," explains Rose, "but it will be a lot of fun.  So far we’ve got some Mermaids and a "Mussel Woman" who have promised to attend, so come and join us or find a good spot along the Parade route."

Everyone is invited to a reception "Coney Island in Shohola" at 4 PM at the Artists’ Market that will include an art exhibit, live entertainment, and complimentary refreshments.  To participate, for a free loan of a costume, or for any further information, e-mail or call 845-557-8713.

Fly The Coop! Project

"Fly the Coop!" is a community art event designed to connect businesses, consumers, non-profits, art lovers, and artists. BAAA has gotten a donation of plywood from Home Depot in Matamoras, and a donation from a local carpenter, Michael Parker, in the form of cutting the plywood into the shapes of roosters and hens.

Local artists are encouraged to participate by picking up and decorating one. Local businesses will be participating by displaying the finished work. We’re planning on a map to help interested parties visit each individually created bird.

We’re also taking pictures of them, and having an online/live auction as a fund-raiser. They will all be displayed at our September 1 "Fly the Coop!" reception, and the online/in-person bidding will close at 5:30 PM that day.

Artists have until July 24 to pick up a cut-out at the Artists’ Market Community Center, 114 Richardson Avenue, Shohola, PA. And July 28 is the deadline for delivering them back to the AMCC or to a business that has agreed to display one.

We’re calling on all artists, businesses, consumers, and non-profits to join us. You can reach us at or CLICK HERE for the Artist's Call

In The Works...

Our grass roots approach invites all members of the community to get involved in our projects at any stage of development.  Our monthly meetings are open to the public, so please join us.  Here's some of what we're working on:

Plein Air 2018--With the help of grants from both sides of the Delaware River, BAAA has sponsored highly successful plein air events for the several years now.  Up next is, "Plein Air dans la Village".  While our past events have all focused on landscapes, this project includes a community painting party on June 30, 2018, where the historic buildings of Milford, PA will be our subjects.  We'll have a reception July 8 to show off the creations.  For more info  CLICK HERE

And thanks to a grant facilitated through the Delaware Valley Arts Association, we'll also have four 2018 Plein Air events on the New York side of the River. 

Plein Air dans le Jardin is scheduled for July 21 at Hestia's Garden in North Branch, NY.  Designed by Darlene Midlang to nurture body and soul, the perennial, vegetable, and herb gardens are ensconced in eight acres of meadows and woods.  

There is an orchard, and wandering paths that will take the explorer to Buck Brook Creek and the old pond stocked with fish. The planted berms hold primarily native plants and were created using lasagna gardening techniques.  The vegetable garden is a series of circles, suggesting a mandala.  For more info or to register CLICK HERE and scroll down

As always, we'll have art supplies and facilitators for beginners, and experienced artists are welcome to bring their own.  There are so many beautiful ways to frame the landscapes, you'll be hard pressed to settle on a place to set up.  This event is July 21, 2018, from 9 - 3 o'clock (July 22 Rain Date).  Space is limited to 15 artists.
