• The Yellow Springs Arts Council announces a new series of concerts for 2014. The two-hour concerts will focus on songs written by village residents.

The YSAC Community Gallery will host the shows on the first Saturday of each month, beginning April 5, with treats by local baker Chrissy Cruz at 7 p.m. and music from 8–10 p.m. The first concert will feature Carl Schumaucher, along with “Charlie-From-The-Web” and Tony Powers. Suggested donation is $4. Songwriters with an hour or more of material who are interested in future performances should contact “Charlie-From-the-Web” at 720-934-6831 or [email protected]
• Through the end of April, the Winds Cafe will host an exhibition by Libby Rudolf, “Watercolors: Color and Light.” The exhibition is in honor of Libby’s sister-in-law Vanessa, who died last year, and 20 percent of the art sale proceeds will benefit Dayton Children’s Hospital. An artist’s reception will be held on Sunday, March 30, 4–6 p.m., at the Winds.

Call for submissions
• While the new hotel is being built at the corner of Xenia Avenue and Limestone Street, the construction site will be hidden from view behind wooden panels, which will be decorated with a temporary art gallery. This spring, a series of 42 panels will be installed above the fence that currently circles the property, and they will remain on display through the fall. YSAC is looking for artists to decorate the panels and businesses and organizations to sponsor them.
