As many of you know I have been a YAA member for years and have known many members in the past that talked about the history of our organization. As far as my knowledge goes the YAA has never had to cancel almost a year of exhibits. This is an unprecedented event and one that we did not take lightly. The Gallery Committee, however, has been working during this
We are very pleased with the great response to our first on-line exhibit and plan to do more in the future. If you have not viewed it, be sure to do so. Here's the link:https://www.yorkartassociation.org/post/online-members-exhibition
We are also very happy to announce that we will begin holding exhibits in the Nancy Woodward Gallery and The Sally Little Danyo Members’ Sales Gallery starting in January.
The 2021 season will be an exciting one starting off with a special members exhibit titled “2020” WHAT A YEAR!!! We would like to see everyone’s response to this eventful year. With a world wide pandemic, social unrest and a strife filled election year we have a lot to respond to. How will you express you experiences in your genre?
We will also be catching up a bit. We have scheduled the 2019 Rottler Winners Exhibit as well as the 2021 Rottler Awards for the Arts Selection Exhibit. We will also hold our 50th Annual Juried Exhibition. Our Spring and Fall members’ exhibits as well as a special open exhibit titled In Response to Nature will round out our season.
We of course will be taking all precautions to protect our members and visitors. A determination will be made closer to January as to the feasibility of holding opening receptions. We will limit the number of visitors allowed in the gallery and of course be sanitizing frequently touch surfaces. Masks will be required.
We are excited to be moving forward presenting exhibits in the visual arts for our membership and the community.
