Fun Times on Kings Yard!

Good times were had by all yesterday on what turned out to be a cool but beautiful, sunny day on Kings Yard in Yellow Springs, at Springs Gallery's second workshop with steel painter Mike Elsass. Mike provided all - including use of tuxedo shirts - and students went home with some of their own painting creations. The day also featured a brief, spontaneous poetry reading by local poet Pamela Barger. Pamela read a few pieces from her book titled, "Transformations." Painting to poetry - it seemed appropriate for the day.

This was Springs Gallery's second and final workshop with Mike Elsass for the year, but we plan to organize and host more workshops with Mike that will be held in his Dayton studio in January/February. So if this interests you - call or drop us a line.

We are also currently planning more classes and workshops in our Yellow Springs gallery, so stay tuned. And remember, if you are interested in taking or teaching a specific class or workshop with Springs Gallery - contact us with your ideas. Thanks!

Springs Gallery in the News Again

Both the Yellow Springs News and the Dayton Daily News have done very nice articles on Springs Gallery since we opened in April. The first, by Sehvilla Mann for the Yellow Springs News, was in June and the second, by Pam Dillon for the DDN, was just a few weeks ago.

In case you missed the articles when they came out, I tried adding links to them in a post here but it didn't seem to work. So I'm putting them in my Links I Like list to the right (where they belong, I guess). Anyway, enjoy.

P.S. Oh, and we're also on facebook now. Link's to the right for that too!

Paula Willmot Kraus Show Extended

Springs Gallery is extending the stay of the lovely palladium prints, silver gelatin prints, and color images by Dayton photographer Paula Willmot Kraus, giving everyone in the area a better chance to view this beautiful work. They will be on display here in Yellow Springs through October 9th. Here's one of my favorites, a silver gelatin print titled "Leaf with Pyramid." Enjoy! - Better yet, come see it in person!
