March 7, 2020 4 - 6 PM

A Celebration of Irish History

Believe it or not, St. Patrick never walked around with the Staff of Jesus, dressed all in green, surrounded by shamrocks and snakes. That image began to evolve from 1370, and is all the invention of artists. The earliest paintings known to be him show a clean-shaven man carrying a triple armed cross.

A "Celebration of Irish History" will set the record straight on St. Patrick, as well as honor the accomplishments of Irish poets and writers, like Oscar Wilde, George Bernard Shaw, and William Butler Yeats. (Dublin is the birthplace of more Nobel Prize Winners in Literature than any other city.)

There will be an exhibit of artwork by classical Irish artists, including James Barry, Hugh Douglas Hamilton, and Augustus Joseph Nicholas Burke. It's all happening on March 7, 2020, from 4 Ė 6 PM, at the Artistsí Market Community Center, 114 Richardson Avenue, Shohola, PA. Complimentary refreshments will be provided at this free event.

"Celebration of Irish History" is sponsored by the Barryville Area Arts Association, and made possible by grants from the Richard L. Snyder Fund, administered through Greater Pike Community Foundation, and through a grant from the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, a state agency funded by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency.

Throughout 2020, BAAA is sponsoring "Creative Differences"óa place for artists and art lovers to forcefully and respectfully offer their opinions on the most pressing issues in the world of art.  These questions donít have answers, but thatís never stopped us from friendly arguments and drinking coffee.

The topics are listed in advance, below, to give time for reflection beforehand.  Everyone is welcome to offer their opinion, or just sit and listen.  Complimentary refreshments are provided.  You've got to come to one to realize how much fun they are.  

It's 2 PM the first Sunday of every month, at the Artists' Market Community Center, 114 Richardson Avenue, Shohola, PA.  For dates, discussion topics, and other details CLICK HERE
