2022 Member’s Show
April 15 – May 14, 2022

Hello everyone!

I’m Deja Freeman, the new Gallery Coordinator at the Yellow Springs Arts Council. I’m excited to use this member’s show to get to know you all!

With last year’s theme being “isolation”, and having moved this show to the spring, it seems appropriate that this year’s theme focus on growth, expansion, and re-birthing ourselves anew. So, what makes you feel expansive? What grows and expands and unfurls in you, even while the outer world contracts? What sets your soul ablaze and reminds you that you’re alive??

This year’s Members Show will be in person. We have delayed it until April so that the opening reception can be both indoors and outdoors (weather permitting).

Application deadline is Saturday, April 9. All work must be delivered to the gallery by that weekend. Please email so we can coordinate a time to meet for dropoff.


  • You must be a YSAC member to include a work in the show. You can join or renew when you drop off your work, if you are not a current member.
  • The first artwork submission is FREE and additional pieces are $10.
  • Create work in any medium. If you’d like to include a piece that does not fit the theme, that’s fine too.
  • Maximum size of your work is 24” square, unless you get express permission in advance.
  • You can sell your work at a price you set. YSAC will collect 25% of each sale. You are responsible for delivering sold work to its buyer.

Photo Guidelines

  1. The photo image size should ideally be 1 MB. (If you don’t know about your photo, you may be able to right click on it and scroll down to properties to see how big the photo is). If it is smaller than 1 MB it will be listed in KBs. 200-500 KB is usually usable but not as large as the page designers would like. 500KB-1MB is usually safe.
  2. They should be sent as an attachment (not embedded inside a document) and it needs to be sent in .jpeg format.
  3. Each image should be titled with the artists name and the number 1 or 2 to match the number of the piece on the application.
