Springs Gallery is offering the first two of what we hope will be many, varied classes and workshops. On Wednesday, August 31, 5:30 pm to 8:30 pm, and again on Thursday, September 15, 4 pm to 7 pm, we're hosting Dayton artist Mike Elsass, known for his abstract paintings on rusted steel. Mike and his students will be painting outside Springs Gallery on King's Yard. The cost is $70 for one session or $140 for both. All materials are provided, including the loan of a tuxedo shirt to get messy in.
Since it's on the public King's Yard you can, of course, just observe. But if you want to create and take home a piece of your own - just sign up. Registration forms are available in the gallery and the information is also posted here below.
Springs Gallery carries some of the work of Mike Elsass and we are thrilled to be able to offer the fun and informal instruction by such a talented and respected artist. Come join us in this adventure!
Note: All ages are welcome/rain or shine (unless it's pouring, of course, then we'll figure something out). Hope you can join us!
Above are 2 images I made of Mike's paintings. On the top/left is a 12 x 12" untitled piece, and on the bottom/right is a 12 x 15" painting titled "Teapot Rock 1, Sedona, Arizona."

If you're not from Yellow Springs, you may not know exactly where Springs Gallery is located. Our address is 220 Xenia Avenue (State Route 68) in the King's Yard area of Yellow Springs. King's Yard is a little strip of independently owned retail shops down a lane off Xenia Avenue. The entrance is just to the right of the Trail Tavern. There are two free public parking lots behind King's Yard (accessible from Walnut Street/off Dayton Street, and there is (sometimes) on-street parking too.
In the column on the right ("Links I Like") there's a mapquest link to the village ("Find Springs Gallery"). I've also added a link to a Google Map below (click on Yellow Springs). If you have any questions - feel free to write or call; all contact info. is shown at the top of the site. Hope to see you soon!
