They nourish the connections between the artists in town. It enriches all of us.”

“Reflections” — Work by Monday Morning Artists
July 17th-August 16th
Two thoughts came together:
Making art can be a lonely creative endeavor.
Making art happen in your life sometimes takes a little organizing.
In 2010, a small group of artists decided they wanted to do a ‘drawing a day’ project to grow as artists. They had so much fun that they decided to continue to meet monthly to share and create together. And that’s how the group “The Monday Morning Artists” was born.
Over the last 5 years, they have gathered on the first Monday of each month in the friendly setting of the First Presbyterian Church in Yellow Springs. They each bring the medium of their choice and often tucked under their arm is a piece of art that they want to share with the group. Lively conversations get going about art and life as their fingers fly and they create. Chuckles and laughter often break out as they share ideas, ask art questions and present their creations for each other’s critique. Sometimes, on a glorious day, they meet in the countryside and paint outdoors together. They are a welcoming group and are delighted when new artists join them.
Every year or so, they exhibit their art as a group; this is their fourth exhibit. The works shown here are “Grinnell Mill” by Yuki Hall and “Keuka Lake” by Libby Rudolf. Many of the Monday morning Artists teach so they are offering 5 relaxing Saturday art classes, each taught by a different artist from the group. The classes will take place during the normal gallery open hours. Check their website for more information on the classes.
“Reflections” will have an Opening Reception Friday, July 17 from 6-9 pm. Come meet the artists, enjoy the live jazz standards music of Gabriel and Peter Day. Refreshments will be served.
