“Thank you for doing this directory. When I moved to town in 1990 there was one available from the Arts Council and I personally scoured it trying to get to know other artists and making connections. It was an invaluable tool for me as a young person moving into the village. It’s really nice to see it coming back around! “
It has been a goal of the Arts Council for many years to create an artist directory. Having an artist directory will make it easier for artists, potential buyers, business owners, and the public in general to connect, thus helping to create even more vibrant conversations about and pieces of art for our wonderful village of Yellow Springs. Names in the directory also help to uphold the reputation of Yellow Springs as an arts community.
The artist directory is open to ALL types of artists–we are not just looking for visual artists, but authors, performers, musicians and more! The artist directory will include helpful information such as medium, studio details, and the opportunity for artists to indicate whether they are willing to teach classes, take commissions, and more. YSAC members get added benefits that increase their visibility in the directory, but members will not automatically be included.
Click here to complete your questionnaire for the artist directory. Look forward to more news about the project! The online directory is already available and is being edited and formatted now. Artists will be asked to review their listing one last time before the publication goes to print near the end of the summer.
All artists who are included in the directory will receive a complimentary copy. Our goal is for the directory to be finished and ready for publishing by the October Street Fair. For more information, please contact us at 937-679-YSAC (9722) or firstname.lastname@example.org.
