Artists’ Market Holiday Party
December 7, 2019 | 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Everyone is invited to share in a free holiday celebration that includes refreshments, art, music, and HOT CHOCOLATE! The Barryville Area Arts Association is celebrating all holiday traditions with two themed displays of classic art, and we’ve got a display of work by our most talented local artisans.
“Creation Stories from Around the World” is an exhibit of ten framed prints featuring artistic representations of ten different creation stories, associated with modern, obscure, and extinct religions.
Another display, “The Story of Christmas in Classic Art”, includes classic prints from the angel’s announcement to Mary that she would give birth (“The Annunciation” by Fra Angelico, c. 1440), through the trip back home and hiding the Baby from the murderous King Herod (“Rest on Flight Through Egypt” by Orazio Gentileschi, 1626).
As our Holiday gift, everyone who attends this reception will get a free chance to win a Huffy Baypointe bicycle we are raffling off. It was donated to us by a generous benefactor, so we are paying it forward.
