    It feels like the space was made for Sharri Phillip’s magical quilts. In her third show at the Emporium, Phillips once again transforms the cafe’s lounge area with her warm, colorful — and definitively enchanting — fiber arts.

  • What, are you yellow? Village celebrates the good scare

    As if black birds were pecking at our downtown garden, scarecrows — 35 at last count — have been popping up over the last two weeks, looming over visitors and villagers coming to town to see the latest creations. Ye Olde Trail Tavern owner Cathy Christian came up with the idea last year, and this year she teamed up with downtown business supporters Bob Swaney and Mindy Harney to make it happen. Ohio Silver owner Marcia Wallgren was caught gluing gems on her Silver Queen’s shoes Tuesday. See page 8, and visit ysnews.com to see more of the creative creatures. (Photo by Suzanne Ehalt)

    The scarecrows lining village streets portend a dark time ahead; Yelloween is coming, and the town is set to both attract tourists and to repulse them.

    It would be hard to find someone with a more unique story than that of Elizabeth (Beth) Hertz, a painter well known in the Dayton area for more than four decades.

  • Their art bristles with intent

    The JafaGirls Corrine Bayraktaroglu and Nancy Mellon open their Hairy Art Palace show during this Friday’s Third Friday Fling and Art Stroll, from 6 to 9 p.m. at the Arts Council Gallery at the Oten building, 309 Xenia Avenue. The gallery will be open during the weekend’s Artist Studio Tour. (Photo by Lauren Heaton)

    The JafaGirls have come to see themselves as community artists who, through public installations, bring people together and help them reframe their assumptions and see things in new ways.
