Annual Members’ Show 2018

January 13 – February 10, 2018

January 13th marked the opening reception of the Yeiser’s 2018 annual Member’s Show!

Generously sponsored every year by Ray Black & Sons in honor of founding member Ginny Black, the Members’ Show is an exhibition that showcases recent artistic work from Yeiser Art Center Members in a single comprehensive exhibition. Participation in this exhibition requires a 2016 or 2017 YAC Membership. Each Member is allowed one free entry, additional entries are $15 each. There is no size restriction, presentation requirement, medium specification or quantity limitation.

YAC Members are diverse in their practice, ranging from quilters, painters, and sculptors to poets, performers, and video artists. Members were encouraged to think outside of the box with their submissions. This year, we received  over 80 entries, including sculptures, paintings, drawings, fiber arts, and Installation.
