Yellow Springs Art Stroll: Being 2 places at once

This friday is the Art Stroll/3rd Friday Fling and there are a lot of art happenings here in Yellow Springs. In fact, I'm supposed to be at two galleries that night, Village Artisans and the YS Arts Council Gallery. Luckily they're right across the street from each other so I can run from one to the other and back again.

The show at the YS Arts Council Gallery, located at 111 Corry St., is a group show from the Monday Morning Artists. We are a group of artists who meet the first Monday of every month to work on our art. Some people paint while others draw with pastels. Theresa usually cleans her glass lampwork beads and I'm often working on some sewing project.

The theme of the group show is "Exuberance" and it will be in the gallery from June 15 through July 14. The gallery is open Weds. through Sat. from 1-4 pm. There will also be five different workshops, each offered on a different Sat. You can check the website above for info on the workshops.

The gallery will be open for the artists reception during the June Art Stroll from 6-9 pm.  I'll also be there on Sat., June 23 from 1-4 pm to gallery sit while Libby does her "Watercolor Sketches" workshop.

I was recently invited to join the local artisans co-op, Village Artisans. They are a collective of 20 fairly local artist who create unique, handmade art. The shop is located at 100 Corry St. in Yellow Springs and is open 7 days a week. Check the link for the specific hours, although if you come between noon-5 pm, we should be open.

The gallery will be open for the June Art Stroll from 6-9 pm for "Meet the new artisan" (that would be me).  They also have a Red Hot Red Dot sale this month.  Next month I'll be the featured artists and have my art hanging in the lobby all month. The reception for that show will be July 20.
