46TH ANNUAL YELLOW SPRINGS ART SHOW
Historic Yellow Springs invites you to join us for the 46th Annual Yellow Springs Art Show. On view from April 27 to May 12, the juried exhibit features work from some of the finest artists in the Delaware Valley and beyond. The exhibition showcases artwork from over 200 artists—including paintings, drawings, graphics, sculpture, pottery and dimensional works in both contemporary and traditional styles. Whether you’re looking for art that invokes thought or work that completes a theme in your collection, art collectors have a wide range of styles and media to choose from. You will want to attend the Opening Gala to have first choice from the large collection of work.
In addition to fine art, the Yellow Springs Art Show also offers a treasure hunt with prizes for the kids. The exhibition is an entirely volunteer driven event, with a committee of over thirty deeply committed volunteers that work hard to assemble, hang and host the best art show in our region.
YELLOW SPRINGS ART SHOW POSTER COMPETITION
Each year Historic Yellow Springs invites all artists in the exhibition to submit artwork for the annual art show poster competition. The theme of the art entered in the poster competition is a village scene or an historic reference to Yellow Springs. Artists are invited to submit one additional piece of art for the poster exhibition. All artwork will be for sale with the exception of the winning work chosen to represent the 2019 Yellow Springs Art Show. Artwork selected for the poster will be auctioned at the Opening Gala of the show. The artwork image will be used on all Yellow Springs Art Show mailings, the exhibit catalog and other marketing pieces. View our online gallery of past Yellow Springs Art Show posters.
OPENING GALA: FRIDAY APRIL 26, 6 – 9 PM
Art collectors attending the Opening Gala, on Friday April 26, 6 to 9 PM, have the opportunity to view and purchase art before the exhibit is open to the public. The Opening Gala also features a silent auction of this year’s Poster Competition winner. Ticket costs are $75 for non-members and $45 for HYS members. View our online gallery of some of the artwork that will be in the 2019 Yellow Springs Fine Art Show.
