'Cabin Fever' in Shohola
SHOHOLA, PA — A local arts group is cooking up a “cure” for cabin fever: the “Cabin Fever Celebration.” It is a multi-disciplinary community event sponsored by the Barryville Area Arts Association that will feature artwork, poetry, performance art, sculpture, and music—much of it created just for this occasion. The party will take place on Saturday, January 6, 2018 from 4 to 6 p.m. at the Artists’ Market Community Center, 114 Richardson Ave. The exhibit will run through January 13, 2018.
The idea of cabin fever has been inspiring great art since the first caveman drew on a wall, waiting out the Ice Age. More recently, it has inspired projects as varied as Charlie Chaplin’s “The Gold Rush,” Steven King’s “The Shining” and a Simpsons’ episode called “Mountain of Madness.” The program is still taking shape, but the list of creative contributors so far includes poets Will Conway, Nancy Dymond, Mary Greene, Dorothy Hartz, Sally Hendee, Mort Malkin and Tracey Gass Ranze. Local artists contributing original work will include Rose Chateau, Spencer Chateau, Bill Cohen, Kristen Dasenbrock, Mef Gannon, Brad Georgi, Claudine Luchsinger, Jane Luchsinger, John Papas, Joe Petrosi, Dixie Rich, Alexis Siroc and Joan Standora. There will be an original dramatic reading by Bizzy Coy, live music, and complimentary refreshments
This project is supported, in part, by a grant from the Richard L. Snyder Fund, administered by the Greater Pike Community Foundation.
