YAH Summer News
Join us for the showing of Blurred Reality, new exhibition that explores that tipping point where reality morphs into legends and dreams.
Exhibiting artists are Victoria Jennings, Ron Korcynski, Kevin Kutz, Michael McDevitt, Mark Miller, and Dan Senneway
And don't forget, that if you have not already scored your series 1, 2, and 3 You Are Here Artist Trading Cards, you will be able to do so on the 22nd when you pick up series 4--the Blurred Reality artists. Collect trading cards from each of our shows this year and get a chance to win a cool work of art from our Off The Wall show in December.
In conjunction with Blurred Reality, we are happy to present, on Friday, July 12 at 6 pm, Stan Gordon, cryptozoologist and researcher of UFO sightings, Bigfoot encounters, and other mysterious events in Pennsylvania since 1959. Join us for this unique evening. Donations very much appreciated.
New Resident Artist:
We welcome Marion Morton. Marion is a locally-grown artist. He is inspired by the body, science, spiritual symbolism, and philosophy of mind. Marion’s drawing, painting, and sculpture explore the nebulous space where his inspirations overlap. The illustrative 2D work Marion produces often blends the bodies of insects or plants with human forms. His sculptures utilize living mushrooms and other materials to highlight the sophistication of fungal systems and delve into an interspecies communication. Marion intends for his work to bring people closer their natural surroundings and each other.
Artist Trading Cards- get them all!!
New Team Members:
If you have missed our Glass City Poetry Readings, you will have a chance to make up for that mistake when our poetry nights resume after New Year. We acknowledge and thank our Poetry Czar Scott Silsbe for setting up and coordinating these monthly spoken word events.
Introducing our Craft Guru- leaving no craft unexplored, Moira Richardson loves to experiment and try out new mediums, making her a bit of a jill-of-all-trades, as far as crafts go. She’ll be focusing on using recycled and up-cycled materials to create books, planners, journals, and more during her time at You Are Here. She’ll also be teaching fun art classes each month using recycled materials from Oh Scrap!. Have a crafty question? Just ask our craft guru. (If she’s not in, feel free to send her a message or leave a note!)
