  • Spires of art and whimsy

    The Village of Yellow Springs Public Art Commission will award Tim and Kelley Callahan, here with their daughter Lucy, the first Village Inspiration and Design Award, or VIDA, on Friday, June 19, 8 p.m. at the YSAC Gallery. At their home on the corner of Corry Street and Glen View Road, the Callahans have built ever-changing stone piles, or cairns, for the last 20 years. (photo by Lauren Heaton)

    The mystical garden of rock forms balanced precariously in the yard of Tim and Kelley Callahan has a life of its own.

  • Village artists all in one place

    People often call the Yellow Springs Arts Council looking for artists who do specific kinds of work: an instructor who teaches African dance, for instance, or a sculptor who does commissioned work, or a property owner who will lease studio space to a musician.

  • YSAC reception for Verdon, Dadras­— Two artistic takes on humanity

    Local painters Parviz Dadras, left, and Thomas Verdon share the gallery at the Yellow Springs Arts Council with exhibits that run through Dec. 1. Both longtime Yellow Springers turned to painting full time later in life and explore human nature through portraits. But Verdon, whose art is visible on the right, uses classical painting techniques, while Dadras incorporates symbolism in his works, which can be seen on the left. An opening reception for the exhibits will be from 6 to 9 p.m. Friday, Nov. 15, with a talk from Verdon starting at 7 p.m. (Photo by Megan Bachman)

    Two local artists are proof that it’s never too late to be what you might have been.
