Third Friday Fling in downtown Yellow Springs

On August 20, the Yellow Springs arts community was in full swing for Third Friday Fling. Various galleries and shops extended their hours into the evening and exhibited works from local artists.

Whimsical "yard art" made from repurposed china and ceramic dishes created by Dayton artist Jenn Mullins lines each side of the walkway leading to Urban Handmade, 241 Xenia Avenue.

Village Artisans Gallery, 100 Corry Street, held an art opening for the show "Extending Our Boundaries," featuring Beavercreek artist Leah Grommon (in red dress), who works with oils, acrylics, and knits, and longtime villager and water color artist Sue Brezine (explaining water color technique to guests).

Cincinnati photographer Matt Vant, stands by his work, "Bird's Eye View," at the artist reception for the group exhibit, "People, Places and Things," at Yellow Springs Arts Council's new gallery and meeting space, 309 Xenia Avenue. The exhibit also features ceramic boxes by fellow Cincinnati artist John Mason, vintage dress designs by Dayton artist Tracy McElfresh, and paintings by Dayton artist Patrick Mauk.
