2013 YSAC Members Show – “Art for Change”

Opening Reception - Friday, February 15, 2013 (6-9pm)
YS Arts Council Gallery, 111 Corry Street

Art sparks ideas, inspires individuals and creates vision…Art opens minds and touches hearts…Art changes our world.

The 2013 Members Show – “Art for Change” – opens on Friday, February 15 (6-9pm) at the YSAC Community Gallery and continues through March 10. From art activism and protest art to political commentary and personal contemplation, these works encourage discussion, create controversy and promote change. This Opening Reception is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served.

During the Opening Reception, experience the diversity and breadth of our Yellow Springs artists. Respond and connect with their art via our interactive People’s Choice Awards activity. During the reception, Joanne Caputo’s 2005 documentary On a Roll will be screened in the YSAC’s Multi-Arts Space. On a Roll raises awareness about people with disabilities and has recently been re-selected for broadcast on PBS's "True Stories.”

This February 15 Reception is also the annual gathering of YSAC members, enabling them to elect their Board of Trustees. Past and prospective members can check their membership status and renew or join. Supporters of the arts in Yellow Springs should be sure to attend and cast their ballots for community arts representation.

Can art change YOU? Come see for yourself how our artist members harness the power of art to promote consciousness, provoke dialogue and inspire action! Explore your passions and envision positive change for yourself, your community and your world.

Visit the Yellow Springs Arts Council on Facebook for more details. The YSAC Community Gallery is open from Wednesday to Sunday (1-4pm), except for the third week of each month.
