Artist Opportunity

Mason High School is having a Taste of Mason on February 20th. This is a fundraising event for our Diversity Counsel. It's also a way of showing the community how diverse we really are. Historically, when we advertise our events, we expect 800 - 1000 people to show.

We are looking to compliment what we are doing with some cultural art.. to be performed or displayed and/or sold. Areas of interest: Russia, Germany, China, Japan, India, Africa, Italy, Mediterranean, Greece, Mexico.. etc.

Interesting parties should contact me ASAP. There is no booth space fee.. so spaces are going fast.

John Bryan Community Center Gallery

Currently at the John Bryan Community Center Gallery
(run by the Yellow Springs Arts Council) is a very nice exhibit.

Unfortunately there is no information about the show or who the artists are :(
I loved this complex piece, it is so vibrant and beautiful.

Anybody that knows me (corrine aka jafabrit) will not be the least surprised that I liked this black and white painting. This artist did a fabulous job with the tongue and the modeling of the face and hands.

If you recognize your work here, please drop me a line at, so I can credit you.

Opportunities for Artists!!!

The Yellow Springs Arts Council coordinates gallery shows in the John Bryan Community Center located at 100 Dayton Street. Call JoAnn McKee at 767-8432, to schedule a show in the Community Gallery or email us here.

Wool Sweater Rescue

Wool Sweater Rescue
uses a felting process to convert wool items into a variety of artfully created items such as bags, pillows, purses etc. Embellishments are also recycled from old clothes etc. The character of each piece is determined by the origin/era of the rescued item. All the items are handmade by Judy Wagner and Ann King-the wool sweater team.
Their work can be seen at the Nolaa Gallery

The art of housewives is a blog devoted to recycled art and well worth a visit.
For the Art Teachers out there The Imagination Factory has some cool ideas for kids.
