Art on the Lawn -- August 11

Art On the Lawn is a juried fine Arts and Crafts show in beautiful laid back Yellow Springs, Ohio. It’s the perfect way to relax on a summer day - strolling amongst the shade trees of Mills Lawn, laughing and talking with friends, meeting the artists. Enjoy the art from a hundred different artists, each with a unique, hand crafted style.

Back for his 4th year is Mozart Dane. He’s a Great Dane and a Great Artist: “The dog who paints with his paws for a good cause.” All his sales benefit Harlequin Haven the Great Dane Rescue.

Our featured artist for this year is jewelry designer Mary Kleismit. Mary is now in her 80s and has been designing gorgeous jewelry for the past forty years. She and her husband, working together, have scoured the country for years, collecting precious and semi- precious stones, as well as digging for the crystals that they use in their jewelry. Mary’s knowledge of stones is amazing.

Whether it’s noshing from old-time food carts, listening to street musicians, having your face painted by a professional artist, taking a chance at the 50/50 raffle, or having the opportunity to see and purchase beautiful, hand-made art, Art On the Lawn is the perfect way to have fun.

Come visit with us this August 11th 10 a.m.–5 p.m. at Mills Lawn, 200 S. Walnut St. Yellow Springs, Ohio
