“I wanted to let you know that my husband and I went to the Art House-Hop on Saturday. It was such a delight! The art was so interesting–eclectic, beautiful, intriguing, a touchstone of people’s lives and travels. We felt so warmly connected to the community, collectors and viewers alike. So: thank you! It’s just wonderful, in conception and execution.” — Audrey Hackett
Please join us for the fourth annual
Art House-Hop: A Collector’s Showcase
A Self- guided Tour of Yellow Springs Private Art Collections
Saturday, September 3, 2016
Noon – 5:00 PM
$15 per person (children 12 and under free)
The Art House Hop was created as a way to honor the wonderful Art Collectors of Yellow Springs. And also as a way to see beautiful art in private collections that we might not have a chance to see otherwise.
We are now into our fourth year of this great adventure. Each year we discover more art collectors in the village and more fabulous art! The art collections have been amazingly varied. They have ranged from many generations of Ohio Artists to International Artists to Historical Art Collections from around the world.
The 2016 Art House Hop features 8 different Art Collections.
The tour happens rain or shine. The homes are located all around town, so biking or driving between homes is recommended, rather than walking. This is a self-guided tour which you can visit in any order and at your own pace. The homeowners will be on hand to greet you and answer your questions. And please be sure to make time to visit the YSAC Community Gallery!

This lovely article by Meredith Moss about the Art House-Hop appeared in the Dayton Daily News on August 30, 2015.
“The Art House-Hop in Yellow Springs was an exceptional experience. The art was diverse; in about every style one could image. To be able to see it in the natural setting of homes was wonderful. The hosts were very gracious and shared stories about their art collection: the artists, where they got their piece (s) and why. Local artists were very well represented; such a pleasure. It was refreshing, unique, and a lot of fun. ” — Sandi Sharp
