— Every day is a new chance to escape our past and realize our dreams. Local artists are providing the inspiration for such a renewal with their “New Beginnings” event sponsored by the Barryville Area Arts Association from 4 to 6 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 5, at the Artists’ Market Community Center, 114 Richardson Avenue, Shohola.

Its artwork, poetry, and music share the theme of new beginnings. The group is convinced that art can raise our awareness and move us toward reconsidering the world anew.

Nick Roes, who has taught “Self-Management” at Marist College and also taught at Brown University, will give a brief presentation on “How To Be Happier in 2019.”

“It’s the perfect way to start your year,” said Roes. "If you find yourself making the same New Year’s Resolution as last year, this talk may be especially helpful.”

The event is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served.

Artists, poets, and musicians have also been invited to share their insights on the new beginnings theme. If you are an artist, poet, or musician who would like to participate, visitbarryvilleareaarts.org.
