This Sunday afternoon, July 26 from 3 to 4 p.m. in the main gallery at the Susquehanna Art Museum we welcome back Selby Doughty, artist and educator and former Commonwealth Speaker for the Pennsylvania Humanities Council. This event, known as "The Women Artists of Pennsylvania: Dare to Defy" is an engaging and entertaining lecture about the women artists from Pennsylvania - their work, those who influenced them and their influences on future artists.

This program is offered free with admission to the museum. SAM members enjoy free admission. Regular adult admission is $8. Discounted admission for seniors, vets, students and educators is $5.

Selby will discuss the rich history of women artists in and from Pennsylvania, starting with the early 1800 pioneering female artists and leading up to current day contemporary artists who live and work right here in the Commonwealth.
