James Luckett at the Chris K Gallery Reception May 2, 2016

Suginami: Photography by James Luckett

April 30 – May 31

Opening Reception and Gallery Talk

James’ book will be available for sale. Light refreshments will be available.
Monday, May 2 from 7 – 9 PM
Suginami is one of 23 ku, or wards, of Tokyo, an area of the city where James lived for 5 years. Houses and apartments there are sited tightly together; narrow streets and even narrower paths wind around themselves, forming a maze of walls, fences, gates and plants that carefully delimit private space from public. Daily walks took him in, around and through the margins of this area of the city for hours on end. Suginami is an exploration of the ways this landscape layers in the edges of a frame, of the transformation of light inside the dark box of the camera and of the space of discovery between the viewfinder and the eye.

James Luckett 
has worked for over 20 years art and photography and exhibited nationally. He has earned an MFA from the University of Arizona, labored as a master printer in a forensic photography lab and taught award winning photography classes in Tucson and Chicago. He now fashions digital and analog images with a wide range of photographic means, manners, methods and mistakes at Antioch College. In 2011 his chemically manipulated gelatin silver prints were awarded an Ohio Arts Council Individual Excellence Award. Luckett has also been cooking traditional homestyle Japanese food for over two decades. James learned most everything he knows about working in a kitchen from the kindness of mothers and the encouragement of aunts while living in Tokyo. He’s catered Japanese New Year’s food, hosted elaborate dinner parties, and sampled the full-range of Japanese cooking from the lowest to the highest in the company of executives, vagabonds and friends. He is the cook at Tables of Contents CafĂ©, located inside Blue Jacket Books in Xenia, Ohio. You’re invited to follow his interests and exploits at his long running, ever evolving, always accumulating website consumptive org.

"I Make Things Because I Must" May exhibit at the YS Arts Council Community Gallery

Fiber Art by Kathy Verner Moulton, Mary Noren, Phyllis Schmidt and Holly Underwood
May 20th-June 12th
Reception May 20th, 6-9 p.m.
Artists Talk 7 P.M.

Featuring Art Quilts, Stuffed Magical Creatures, Textile Portrait Dolls,
Embroidery Art and Hand Crafted Rugs.

Four Fiber Artists with an insatiable need to make things  
“All through my life my need to create has driven me. No matter what else I was doing, I had to have some piece of artwork in progress,” Kathy Verner Moulton  

“In my teens, I started sewing with my grandmother,” Mary Noren

 “Making things truly helps me stay sane. Bringing to life the creative ideas in my head brings me simple happiness like nothing else can.” Holly Underwood

“For me it's fun, a way to play.”  Phyllis Schmidt

These artists, create art to give to friends and family as gifts, to decorates their homes, to remake something old into something new. They are driven to make things: to surround themselves and their loved ones with handmade items that fill a need in a personal way, to repurpose something broken into something useful, to shun mass produced products in favor of one-of-a-kind gems.

Holly Underwood
learned to embroider and sew from her mother and grandmother. She still has the cross-stitch she did at about age 10. In the over three decades since, she has branched out to quilting by machine and by hand, embroidery of various kinds including hardanger and sashiko, making curtains and clothes, and toys and masks for her son. Her current favorite upcycled materials are felted wool sweaters and t-shirt yarn. Though she has dabbled in other types of crafting such as paper making, mosaics and candle making, for her it always comes back to needles, thread and fabric. You can visit Holly at her page Tinkerman's Daughter.

Mary Noren


 is inspired by vintage fabrics, bold colors and quirky motifs.  She designs and creates clothing, costumes, quilts, creatures, wall hangings and toys.  Her pieces are often playfully whimsical.
She runs a sewing school in Yellow Springs called the Mad Hatter Sewing Studio.
For Kathy Verner Moulton 
“Needle and thread became familiar tools in high school when what we wore was so-o-o important. You had to know how to change your regular jeans into hip-huggers, cutting and sewing back the waistband and tucking in the extra zipper. These skills came in handy during the leanest years of early marriage, doing free-lance sewing for a living. Later sewing became quilts and wall hangings both traditional and nontraditional using my character designs.” Her  series of “Yellow Springers” dolls began as a gag gift for a Christmas Party, each has his/her own pair of handmade “Ghirkenstomp”sandals.

Phyllis Schmidt's 

background is in Design. Her work now focuses on the decorative arts, creating colorful whimsical art out of bits and pieces from different media.

YS Arts Council “Just the One, Actually”, Art by Chloe L. McEldowney


Reception April 15, 6-9pm
Exhibit Runs from April 15th until May 15th 
YS Art Council Community Gallery
111 Corry St
Yellow Springs

In a series of portraits, both of humans and natural objects, Chloe presents images of her subjects, detached from their environments.
“The essence of my work stems from my family background. Out of our home, my family ran an outreach program, welcoming in people from all walks of life.”

Growing up in a home where her family was constantly shifting, taking on and losing new members, she carries poignant memories of these faces, pulled from worlds of which she was not a part. Each member had its own family before living with hers, another city, another home, surrounded by different people, molding, building, scarring them.
Eliciting Daniel III (detail)No artist bears witness to the experiences of the subject, so Chloe chooses to focus not on that which surrounds what she paints, but on the person. Patches of stories both told and untold are painted into each subject, marks of obscured experiences are caught by her thoughtful brush.
She paints what she sees in a contrasting combination of bold and nuanced strokes, layering bright, heavy marks and hard lines interspersed with a soft blending of color. Parts of the surface is often masked, with thinner, transparent layers.
Chloe McEldowney is an artist in residence at Access Arts in Columbia, Missouri, where she is an art instructor. She has been included in exhibitions across the country, ranging from California to Massachusetts. Chloe is a native of Russia, Ohio, and received her BFA from the University of Dayton. She was awarded a Yeck College Artist Fellowship at the Dayton Art Institute. In her senior year, Chloe was a finalist in the Excellence in Visual Arts Awards by the Association of Independent Colleges and Universities of Ohio.

OHAYO OHIO: A Japanese Symposium

Bringing Japan to Yellow Springs 
from April 30 – May 9


 Ohayo Ohio is a 10-day Japanese symposium and cultural event taking place in Yellow Springs from April 30 through May 9. A variety of workshops, presentations and exhibits on traditional and contemporary Japanese art, culture and language will be offered. “There is something for everyone to enjoy” said Beth Bridgeman, instructor of cooperative education at Antioch College and symposium organizer. For artist bios, the schedule, and workshop registration, go to 
Yellow Springs Experience

There are events for families as well as experienced artists and seasoned japanophiles. Free events include a haiku slam; lectures on contemporary Japanese environmentalism, history, papermaking and other arts; a cosplay parade; storytelling; four art exhibits featuring photography by James Luckett, Sarah Strong’s participatory installation “The Power of Story”,photography of the Antioch College teahouse, Kyoto-based kusakizome artist Mami Adachi’s Kimono exhibit (part of the larger “Threads Bared” exhibit currently showing in the Herndon Gallery on Antioch campus) and more.


Paid workshops will include arts such as raku pottery; washi papermaking with MacArthur 

“Genius Grant” Fellow Timothy Barrett, an alumnus of Antioch College; calligraphy; sushi- making; sashiko (Japanese embroidery); gyotaku (fish printing); kusaki-zome and shibori, (cloth-dyeing techniques); a tea ceremony; a Japanese anime film; suminagashi (paper marbling) for kids and more! These workshops have limited space and require pre-registration and pre-payment.


The Village of Yellow Springs shares a long and storied history with Japan, from the 

days of welcoming and sponsoring families from internment camps, to Antioch College 
Professor Earle Reynolds' assignment to the U.S. Atomic Bomb Casualty Commission in 
Hiroshima after the war, (leading to the founding of the World Friendship Center in 
Hiroshima), to Antioch College Professor Harold Wright’s establishment of the College’s exchange program with Kyoto Seika University. Reflecting this strong connection, Japanese is one of the three languages offered at Antioch College.


Ohayo Ohayo and The Kimono Project are generously supported by the Yellow Springs 

Community Foundation, the Lloyd Family Fellowship and Antioch College alumnus Timothy Barrett '73.
