    A new jewelry store downtown has its origins in Jose Soto’s desire, 38 years ago, to capture the attention of a woman who would later become his wife.

  • Local pottery features new work

  • Macbeth offers up the Oten for sale

    After several decades of creating art with the bricks and mortar at his Xenia Avenue Oten Gallery, Alan Macbeth is putting his building on the market. The Yellow Springs Arts Council resides in part of the building, and the Asian Collection rents another space. MacBeth lives in a basement apartment.

    The brick archways of the Oten Gallery have been a labor of love and obsession for Alan Macbeth, the owner and creator of the distinctive structure on Xenia Avenue. But after several years testing the sound of his voice saying he feels ready to sell, he is sure that he is no longer in a position to steward his master work.
