YSAC needs gallery volunteers

Suzie the Snake can't do it all by herself.

Dear Arts Council Members,

Our new gallery at 111 Corry St. is open and beautiful!

Have you seen Suzie the Snake greeting visitors at the door to our gallery? She is a public art installation by Beth Holyoke and Kathe Seidl and will be visiting with us for the summer and autumn months. (We are taking bets on how long Suzie will survive Ohio weather.)

The shows scheduled for our February-November season are fun, beautiful, different, exciting and well worth coming to see. I hope you have a chance to come and see them all. You never know what surprises we will have cooked up for you. There might be art workshops, goofy games, fun with food, craft nights, open mics with historical storytelling, artist talks or live music and dancing on the patio.

We are looking for volunteers to help keep the gallery open during the week. We would like to have the gallery open from Tuesday- Saturday 1-4 p.m. (The third week of each month the gallery will be closed for changing over of the shows.)

We already have artists to keep the gallery open on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Saturdays. We are looking for volunteers to keep it open on Thursdays and Fridays. If you could do one or two, regularly scheduled 3 hour shift, a month or would like to be on an emergency call list that would be wonderful! You could bring your art or craft to the gallery and work on it during your time or bring a book to read.

Thank you for supporting the arts in Yellow Springs!
