  • Sticky, off-the-wall art on a wall

    Several local arts supporters got in the spirit last Sunday at Chew 4 Art, which launched the Traveling Gum Wall, a collaboration of the Yellow Springs Arts Council and the JafaGirls. The public is invited to help decorate the gum wall this Saturday during the Street Fair at the Arts Council booth in the Art Park at 100 Corry Street, which is a fund-raiser for the arts group. Shown above are, at left, JafaGirls Corrine Bayraktaroglu and Nancy Mellon and at right, Arts Council coordinator Carole Braun, Tom Osborne and award-winning bubble-blower Lori Tuttle.

  • Arts group new home work of art

    Last Saturday Yellow Springs Arts Council members worked to help ready their new home on Xenia Avenue, the arched structure built by Alan Macbeth. The space will serve as a Welcome Center for the YS Experience, which kicks off Friday, July 9, at 4 p.m. at the building. Shown above are, seated in front, Arts Council Coordinator Carole Braun, Phyllis Schmidt, Jerome Borchers and Joanne Caputo. Standing in back are Sally Palmer, Michael Fleishman, Anita Brown, Michael Brown and Macbeth.

    Even artists can disagree about what, exactly, constitutes art, but the leaders of the Yellow Springs Arts Council are unified on this: the organization’s new space at Alan Macbeth’s Oten Gallery fits the description, and the space also offers the group a wealth of new opportunities.

  • Recession knocks local nonprofits

    Almost a full year after the national economic seizure, nonprofit organizations in the village are feeling the squeeze in their budgets. The crash affected most markedly the heftily endowed, and it hurt most cruelly the service-oriented groups. While contraction to reduce expenditures is an option, many local nonprofits are choosing to maintain or expand their programs in hopes of riding out a temporary financial slump.
