Ladies First–Pioneers celebrates the accomplishments of female trailblazers. Visionary artists, writers, scientists, social justice fighters, musicians, and others on the vanguard are being presented in a festive four-part event, including reception, award ceremony, concert and after-party.
The event is co-hosted by the James Cohan Gallery.
Special presentations include a tribute to our friend and mentor, professor Pia Gilbert (1921-2018), and a soon-to-be-announced guest of honor, all in a beautiful visual setting featuring the paintings and drawings of Grace Weaver on her solo exhibition’s final day.

Ladies First, a concert series focusing on women via art was founded by musicians Lynn Bechtold, Milica Paranosic, and Keve Wilson in 2012.
Event sponsors and supporters include The New York State Council on the Arts, James Cohan Gallery, Harlem Shake, Lara St. John/Ancalagon and Robert Ford


As children, we all create art. We sing and dance together, we build sand castles, we make up stories and draw landscapes on the walls of our rooms. Then somehow, life teaches us to become ‘serious’, get a ‘real’ profession and stop ‘plying around’ and the links to our inner artists brake.

At Paracademia, we keep those links alive and awake them if they fall asleep.

Paracademia is committed to nurturing and revitalizing our artistic predispositions through the community efforts through collaborative productions, performances and education.

We particularly support immigrants, especially women by providing education, performance and professional opportunities.
