  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Scarcecrows haunt downtown streets

    It’s Yelloween, the new local Halloween tradition, and downtown businesses are getting in the spirit by erecting a uniquely terrifying scarecrow in front of their shops.

  • Artist Michael Casselli — Art, talk that sizzles and sparks

    In his studio, contemporary artist Michael Casselli surveyed the handmade paper he learned to create for a recent exhibition. His current Emporium show, ‘Works on Paper,’ features seven printed images of abstracted young faces to emphasize the intangible quality of memory. It runs until Sept. 30. (Photo by Megan Bachman)

    From his 5,000-square-foot studio in Millworks, Michael Casselli creates artwork that sparks and fizzes, blurs boundaries and engages all senses.

  • Cups, dishes meet the sky, artistically

Mischler was inspired by piles of dishes stacked in his sink. (Photo by Diane Chiddister)

    As an artist, Bill Mischler sees beauty where others might miss it. For instance, he’s sometimes struck by the compelling designs created by the dishes stacked up in his kitchen sink.

  • Graffiti in the school yard, with praise

    In an creatively anti-vandalizing way, a group of Mills Lawn students took their spray cans and paint brushes to the school yard this month to repurpose the soccer wall into a work of graffiti art.

  • Buddha home for the holidays

    Snow Buddha appeared last Thursday, Dec. 16, in front of Brother Bear’s Coffee House.

  • Eddie to be honored at 14th Art Stroll

    n was in 1996 that long-time village shopkeeper and painter Eddie Eckenrode helped organize the first Art Stroll. So it seems only fitting that this fall’s Art Stroll be held in honor of him.

  • Tour to focus on the creative process

    For the last seven years, the annual October Studio Tour has flooded the town with art buyers, boosting the local tourist economy and supporting its artists.

  • Post office mural gets a shine

    If residents who frequent the U.S. Post Office in Yellow Springs haven’t noticed the mural at the eastern end of the lobby, perhaps it’s because of the grease, grit and grime that has been dulling the paint for the past 70 years.
