Holiday Art Jumble Sale

Presented by the Yellow Springs Arts Council

December 7th – January12, 2013

YS Arts Council Gallery, 111 Corry Street, Yellow Springs, Ohio

It’s Back! The Yellow Springs Arts Council is hosting its second Holiday Art Jumble. This fundraiser supports local artists and the YSAC Community Gallery. The Holiday Art Jumble opens on December 7th (1-4pm) and continues through January 12th (Wednesday to Sunday, 1-4pm).

“Tis the season of giving” or “Tis the season of shopping”? – The modern-day holiday conundrum. This season you can do both! Fill your heart with cheer as you shop for one-of-a-kind gifts at the YSAC Holiday Art Jumble. Scores of art supporters have donated gently used art, hand crafted items and antique collectibles.  It’s the grand reshuffling of Art in Yellow Springs!

The walls and pedestals of the YSAC Gallery will be filled with out-of-the-closet art, handcrafted whimsy, tiny collectibles- handmade and brought home from all over the world and fabulous chotchkies!  And best of all, they will all be at “can’t resist” prices.

The festivities begin on Friday, December 6th with a special event for YSAC Members- a “Sneak Peek Party” from 6-9 p.m. The Jumble opens for shopping and smiles, Saturday December 7th from 1-4pm.

On Saturday, December 14th you can combine your holiday shopping with jubilant entertainment at our Arts Alive! Holiday Concert.  The Holiday Concert runs from 6:30-9:30 pm and includes festive music, a cash bar and seasonal treats. Local favorites, Heartstrings, will perform from 7:30-9:00 pm. This five-woman group, including Mary Beth Burkholder, Sarah Goldstein, Dottie Palsgrove, Linda Scutt & Carol Van Ausdal, plays traditional music with a signature blend of acoustic instruments including fiddle, mandolin, banjo, concertina and hammered dulcimer; their repertoire draws predominantly from Celtic and Appalachian traditions, with tastes of Scandinavian, Italian and Klezmer music.

A $10 performance donation is suggested.  All proceeds from the Jumble Sale and Heartstrings Concert will benefit the YS Arts Council in support of local artists and the YSAC Community Gallery.
