Yellow Springs Art Show moves online; opens tonight

The village of Historic Yellow Springs (HYS) expected to be overwhelmed with visitors tonight for the opening night gala of the 47th annual Yellow Springs Art Show.

It is not; it is a private 501c3 nonprofit that depends on its Annual Art Show for a very large portion of its income to carry it throughout the year and allow it to maintain the village, the trails and offer programs, lectures, classes and beauty that comes from a true piece of American History.

The 196 artists who planned to participate in the live show, have provided pieces for the online launch. HYS expects to add galleries to the site each week with new works of art available. Participating artists will show paintings, drawings, graphics, and 3-dimensional works in a variety of styles and mediums. As well, HYS is working on video interviews with various artists; giving viewers an insight they might not have gotten previously.

All of the proceeds benefit arts, education, historic preservation and the environmental protection of the historic village of Yellow Springs.
