Bird Art Auction and Art Stroll this Friday, June 20 in Yellow Springs

"Feathering the Nest" quilted birdhouse, 8.75" x 10.5

This lovely little quilted birdhouse has been donated to the "Bird Art Auction" that will take place this Friday, June 20, at the Yellow Springs Art Council's gallery in conjunction with the opening reception of Talitha Greene's photo exhibit  “Gone To The Birds: Featuring Glen Helen Raptor Center Birds.”

The Bird Art Auction will feature 2D and 3D bird artwork made by local artists. Fifty percent of the proceeds from each sale will go to support the birds and fifty percent will go to each donating artist.

The reception will also feature a blues band on the outdoor stage, refreshments from the Meadowlark Restaurant (of course!) and Dino's Cappuccinos. The art auction starts at 7:30 pm.

This all happens during the Yellow Springs Art Stroll, when the downtown galleries stay open late. Other galleries that will be open are include the Village Artisan Gallery, the new Peeps in the Park art panels that are on the outside of the Village Artisans building, Would You Could You in a Frame, the John Bryan Community Pottery (which will also feature some quilts as well as pottery) and more.

Yellow Springs Street Fair this Saturday

The Yellow Springs Street Fair is this Saturday, June 14. We'll be in booth #177 (if you're facing the Little Art Theatre, were to the right). Along with my artwork, we'll have homemade strawberry-rhubarb pie, both large and the adorable individual size, and copies of "Cinderbox Road," a collection of short stories written by Scott Geisel.

The Street Fair goes from 9a-5p. If you're coming from out of town, there are two shuttles available with parking: at the Yellow Springs High School if you're coming from I-675 and at Young's Jersey Dairy if you're coming from the north.
