For nearly a half-century, Historic Yellow Springs, a nonprofit in Chester Springs steeped in American history, has been showcasing talented artists from around the country.
From April 27 to May 12, HYS will host its 46th Annual Art Show. Sponsored by Malvern Bank, National Association, the juried show will feature 218 artists, including 28 newcomers, and is free and open daily to the public from 10 AM-4 PM.
“Malvern Bank is proud to sponsor this year’s event in a historic setting that allows the community to come together and refresh the mind through art,” said Anthony C. Weagley, CEO of Malvern Bank.
The show spans two weeks, will draw thousands of people from the tri-state area, and is being advertised on a billboard in Times Square. All proceeds from the event benefit arts, education, historic preservation, and the environmental protection of the historic village of Yellow Springs.
Participating artists will exhibit paintings, drawings, graphics, and three-dimensional works in a variety of styles and media. There will also be demonstrations.
Historic Yellow Springs is said to be a magical village, and it “takes a village” for it to maintain and continue to offer classes, programs, and events. The Art Show is a volunteer-driven event, with a committee of more than 30 deeply committed people who are hard at work putting together this signature event.
An opening gala will be held on Friday, April 26 from 6-9 PM, offering those who attend the first chance to see and purchase this year’s works before the public. The gala also features a silent auction of this year’s Poster Competition winner, “Plein Air Days at Yellow Springs” by Christopher Lanser.
Tickets to the opening gala are $45 for HYS members and $75 for non-members. There will also be a special Happy Hour sponsored by Cedar Hollow Inn that features a cash bar and acoustic music provided by EBE Talent on Friday, May 3 from 5:30-8 PM.
