Yellow Springs Arts Council Holiday Art Jumble

A Fundraiser for the YS Arts Council Community Gallery

presented by the Yellow Springs Arts Council

November 18th- December 31st

(Open during Gallery Open Hours: Wednesday-Sunday 1-4, closed on Nov. 23rd )

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

 

 “I was in the gallery last night for a meeting and I SO LOVED the Jumble. This is the best of what this holiday season should be – well loved items in search of new homes. The items have so much character and history, and patina. Being there actually inspired in me some seasonal cheer. I am going back (and searching for my own treasures to donate). Thanks so much for restoring my spirit.”

Quote by Dennie Eagleson about the 2016 Jumble

 

Starting November 18th, Enjoy all the surprises you can find at the Holiday Art Jumble. You never know what you will find because we never know what will be donated!

 

But two things we can tell you, this year we will have a raffle for jewelry and a silent auction for a quilt by Textile Artist, Marianne Rabb Britton.

 

Even after the Jumble opens on the 18th, more Art and hand made Crafts and totally cool ‘arty’ things arrive on our doorstep all month long. (Thanks to all the artists and art lovers in Yellow Springs!) So keep dropping by to see what’s new!

We keep adding goodies and pricing it low.  We want the Jumble to feel like a treasure hunt, for you to have fun and find a wonderful bargain.  And while having fun you are helping to support the arts in Yellow Springs. What a great way to shop!

 

November 17th  6-9 p.m.

We open the doors for our “Sneak Peek” sale

After A Mass Shooting, Families Feel ‘A Pain That Will Never Go Away’

Every time there is a mass shooting in the United States, there is a flurry of concentration on those who died, the alleged or confessed perpetrator, and the sobered, devastated town that will be forever changed. Then at some point, the press caravan moves on — from Sutherland Springs, from Orlando, from Las Vegas. And within weeks, or sometimes just days, another mass shooting is being reported. The public attention moves on, but those affected families don't. More families joined the ranks of the grieving this past week, when five people were killed in Rancho Tehama Reserve, Calif. "It is a pain that will never go away," Tom Mauser says. He's been living with it for more than 18 years. His 15-year-old son Daniel was killed at Columbine High School on April 20, 1999. "My son Daniel was a very gentle, soft-spoken kid," Mauser says. "He was a Boy Scout, piano player, loved to play video games, straight-A student." Daniel was shy, but faced his fears head-on, his father says. "He chose

Community-building is an action verb …

The fall 2017 project-based learning, or PBL, Exhibition Night at Yellow Springs High/McKinney Middle School is set for Monday, Nov. 20, beginning at 6 p.m. at the school. That’s when students show, demonstrate and discuss the work with which they have been engaged since the start of the school year.

And this year’s fall gathering will feature an added component. Fifteen minutes after the official exhibition portion of the evening ends at 7:30 p.m., a student-hosted community-building potluck will commence.

The potluck is sponsored by an alliance of the high/middle schools’ clubs, including the United Students Society, Gay Straight Alliance, School Forest, Junior Council on World Affairs, The YS Fems and McKinney Student Council.

And everybody is invited — “students, families, grandparents and village members,” according to the event invitation. Along with the food and company, the gathering will feature a “structured dialogue” toward the purpose of community building.

Interested participants are asked to call 767-7224, leave a contact email and phone number, and include the number of people planning to attend in your party as well as whether you’ll be bringing a dessert or a side dish.
