Alcove Gallery

The Alcove Gallery is a pocket gallery tucked into the spacious entrance to Antioch University Midwest. With an easy hanging system it’s a perfect space for a small show. The Alcove Gallery Program, managed by Yellow Springs Arts Council (YSAC), in partnership with Antioch University Midwest (AUM), provides gallery space and consultation services to artists. The program stimulates membership for the YSAC and supports artists of multiple disciplines and experience levels in Yellow Springs and beyond. While artists are encouraged to exhibit for professional gain – including visibility, networking, and sales – our presenting artists are fundamentally motivated by a desire to enhance the community’s creative spirit through their art.

The Alcove Gallery is available for exhibition by current YSAC members. Individuals may become members with the express purpose of presenting in the gallery. Solo and shared exhibits, as well as collaboration with other arts disciplines for receptions, are encouraged. All work must be original.

The Alcove Gallery hosts six shows per year, and started in March of 2017.

With summer in full swing and celebrations a plenty, come and celebrate the talented  artists that volunteer their time to help the YSAC Gallery Council. A little bit of this, and a little bit of that is what goes into the varied mediums that each of our artists work with. Ceramics, digital painting, printmaking, drawing, pastels, and so much more! With backgrounds in all types of mediums the show highlights the fun, and curiosity that goes into the art making process. The importance of art and community is meaningful to our Gallery Council, and this is a moment to share more of our artistic talents with our community. Come visit the Alcove Gallery and join in our celebration of our talented artists!


Please join us for the Reception on July 17th from 5-7 PM at the Alcove Gallery located at Antioch University West, 900 Dayton St, Yellow Springs, Ohio.
