SHOHOLA, PA - Everything on display at the “Orphaned Art Show” is free. Only one to a customer, but everyone who views the exhibition will get a sticker to put on the artwork of their choice. At the end of the reception, they can take the art home with them.
The work includes framed original drawings, original paintings, canvas prints, photography, jewelry, classic prints, sculpture, wood carvings, and other art. They range in size from very large to very small. The largest work in the Orphaned Art Show is a 28 x 44 inch framed piece by Robert Wood, “By the Sawkill”; the smallest one is a 3 ¼ x 4 ½ inch piece, “At the Park”, in an oval frame and handcrafted in Italy.
The idea for the Orphaned Art Show was born when the building that houses the Artists’ Market Community Center was sold and they got notice to vacate. As a way to repay the community that has supported them, more than 300 works of art will be made available for free.
“We’d rather go out with a big bang than a whimper,” the gallery staff explained. “We’re having one last blast in a space that has strived to build community through art. We’re hoping to say goodbye, in person, to everyone who has visited us over the past six years, and that the community spirit we helped build will live on long after we close.”
Doors to the Exhibit open at 10 a.m. on September 30, and the free reception is from 3 – 6 p.m. on October 2nd.
Starting on September 30 at 10 a.m., visitors will be able to enjoy the exhibit and reserve their free artwork. Hours are from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on September 30th and October 1; and then 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on October 2. Visitors can take home their free art any time after 3 p.m. on October 2. Complimentary refreshments will be available. The AMCC is at 114 Richardson Avenue, Shohola, PA.
The AMCC will continue to sponsor events at other venues and continue to produce art-related videos for their highly popular YouTube Channel. The Orphaned Art Show is co-sponsored by the Barryville Area Art Association, and made possible, in part, by a grant from the John L. Snyder Fund of the Greater Pike Community Foundation.
