Yellow Springs Artists Social Network

Artists of Yellow Springs

Supporting the growth of Arts in Yellow Springs through networking.

Eric Wolf was kind enough to start a social network at Ning.

" This social network is open to any artist who lives works or sells art within a 25 mile circle of Yellow Springs. All artists are encouraged to be members of the Arts Council :-)

This Ning is open to any artist who is invested in the success of the Yellow Springs Arts Council and the development of the Artistic community in Yellow Springs."

If you are a storyteller, dancer, visual artist, writer, folk artist, actress/actor, playwright, etc, please join us and share your vision and your art.
