April Art Newsletter
Happy Spring everyone! I hope everyone is keeping well and is looking forward to the next few months. I know I am going to be busy with art shows cropping up at various traditional and not-so-traditional venues - from an outdoor festival to open studios to pop up shows. I hope you will be able to join me at some of them. Details below.

Historic Yellow Springs Art Show
IN PERSON AND VIRTUAL SHOWINGS!
I will have 12 paintings available for purchase at this historic annual art show, now in its 48th year!
Event details: Every year the arrival of spring always seems to bring a feeling of newness and optimism, but never more so than this year! We could not be more excited to bring you the 48th annual Yellow Springs Art Show, featuring almost 200 juried artists from the Delaware Valley and beyond!
Despite the immensely challenging times brought on by the pandemic, Historic Yellow Springs continues to evolve. For the first time ever, this years’ art show will be a hybrid event, enabling patrons to stroll the beautiful galleries and purchase art on-site, or view and shop for artwork online at
In addition, to facilitate in-person viewing and reduce crowding, we are extending the length of the Art Show to four full weeks, from the traditional two weeks.
We ask that all patrons who visit the village wear a mask and follow all HYS safety protocols. Admission is free to the public and you do not need a reservation, however, we are limited to a 75 person occupancy.
Unfortunately, we will not be hosting our Opening Gala or Happy Hour events this year. Instead, will be having an outdoor event, Art Around the Village, Sunday, May 2 from 10 AM - 2 PM, rain or shine. Join us for a fun afternoon in the village and enjoy live music from Chris Lebresco, live artist demonstrations and more! Details coming soon!
