— The Barryville Area Arts Association is sponsoring a monthlong “Celebration of Dance” that includes a standing exhibit, presentations, and live performances.
The opening reception from 4 to 6 p.m. on Saturday, June 3, at the Artists’ Market Community Center, 114 Richardson Ave., Shohola, will include several presentations:
The Hannah Q Dance Company will make a presentation on modern dance.
Jeffrey Stocker, CEO and Founder of American Readers Theatre, will share his expertise on classical dance and how it has influenced modern art.
The exhibit will include tutus, head pieces, point shoes, photos, posters, and prints of artwork inspired by dance by Edgar Degas and Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec. An exhibit of local artists will run concurrently, including the photography of Eloy Argueso, ceramic tiles painted with alcohol ink by Jane Brennan, oil paintings by Debbie Gioello, fabric art by Mef Gannon, pottery by Adrienne Markowitz, jewelry by Stephanie McClure, ceramics by Kelly Ryan, and landscapes by Elva Zingaro.
“Dance is a universal language and the most basic of all art forms,” said Dixie Rich, who is coordinating the project. “What better way to promote our mission of building community through art than to have a month-long celebration of dance?”
