  • Outdoor sculpture contest winners — Public art to go public in October

    Local artists Beth Holyoke and Migiwa Orimo (shown sitting along the bike path on the newest tiled bench by Holyoke and local artist Kaethi Seidl) are two of the three winners of the recent Yellow Springs Outdoor Sculpture competition, sponsored by the Yellow Springs Arts Council, the Yellow Springs Center for the Arts Steering Committee and the Community Information Project. The third winner is Olga Ziemska of Cleveland. By the Fall Street Fair, public artwork by all three artists will be on display around the village.

    Most art is meant to be viewed by the public, but not all art takes up permanent residence in the public sphere in the way the three pieces that won the village’s first public sculpture contest are about to do. But come Street Fair time in early October, three public spaces in the village will display Beth Holyoke’s three-dimensional yellow mosaic of the word “springs,” Olga Ziemska’s sculpture of the hands of villagers cast in white in the image of a bird in flight, and Migiwa Orimo’s old-style telephone booth that beckons villagers to come inside and create their own experimental artworks.

  • Loading dock brings sculptor to YS

    Woodworker, sculptor and architectural designer Tom Hawley works on a sculptural bowl in his workspace at Millworks Business Center. Hawley’s work is on display at The Cannery Art and Design Center in Dayton and the Malton Gallery in Cincinnati.

    Massive logs lay outside the artist’s workspace, quietly waiting their turn to be carved, chiseled, shaped, shaved, sanded, planed and polished into a gallery of finely finished forms. The logs were recently recovered from a fallen Catalpa tree on the grounds of the Westcott House in Springfield, a unique example of the prairie-style architecture made famous by Frank Lloyd Wright.

  • Sculptor’s legacy set in stone, bronze, iron, etc.

    Sculptor Jon Hudson stands before his latest installation, Synchronicity X: I Am the Light of the World. The 16-foot tall, 27 ton, granite and mirror stainless steel sculpture was commissioned for the recently completed Center for Biblical and Theological Study on the campus of Cedarville University.

    An artist’s inspiration can come from anywhere — the angelic face of a sleeping child, a vibrant color from a neighbor’s garden, or perhaps the unique perspective of a somersaulting motorcyclist after connecting head-on with an oncoming car.

  • A worldview of life through the lens

    “I was doing a wedding once,” explained photographer Mary Kay Clark, as she prepared for an upcoming exhibit, “and I noticed in the chrome around the headlamp of a vintage Triumph car was the reflection of the church where the couple just got married.
