Mills Park Fence Art Gallery Project
The Mills Park Fence Art Gallery Project grew out of developer Jim Hammond’s desire to have an attractive safety fence surrounding the lot where he is building a hotel (scheduled to open in the summer of 2015), at the corner of Xenia Avenue and Limestone Street in Yellow Springs. He approached the Arts Council about coordinating the artists and the project was born!
Nearly 50 sponsors agreed to fund a panel painted by nearly as many artists, all of whom received a stipend for their work. All sponsor and artist spots are full. The panels will be up at least through the summer of 2014, and into the fall if they weather well. They belong to the artists when the project is complete. Some panels are available for purchase, and many of these artists take commissions or have other work available for sale. If their name is not a link, you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will provide you with their contact information.
Panel Artist Sponsor Cacky Carey Travis Tarbox Hotaling Bruce Parker Kit Crawford Ali Massullo “Fire in the Sky” by Paul MonaghanA mixed media piece consisting of melted eutectic alloy splattered on soapstone, embedded with lava rock and glass nodules. The splatters are mounted on plywood coated with a ceramic automotive paint, while the fireball is acrylic paint. The inspiration came from my interest in space, having worked on the original Luna Module, and observing molten jet engine turbine blades splattering on concrete. Kim Hays Katharina SeidlI love what Chamber Music Yellow Springs is doing for the music culture in Yellow Springs. For thirty years they have brought exceptional and world renown chamber music groups to our little village in Ohio. Many years now their logo has been this little cartoon cello guy and to that I wanted to add a female image. The ‘ YS News’ described her as soulful and that is exactly what I was going for, since music is at the heart and soul of our village.

Wheaton of Spotted Hand StudioAn enrolled member of California’s Konkow-Nomlacki tribe, J.C. fuses natural themes (animals/plants/trees) together with traditional California Native American designs, and flow of consciousness symbolism. This piece started with his desire to draw a swan. Somalia Robinson Maxine SkubaI have always been inspired by quilt patterns. Many of those patterns can be found on other cultures’ marble cathedral floors or in ceremonial garments, hence the name of perennial art forms. I have wanted to do large motifs like the kind you see on the sides of barns in and around the Midwest. This was my chance to make one and I didn’t have to deal with the installation part. This is a variation of a four patch quilt design and also a variation of Hull’s Victory.
