44th Annual Yellow Springs Art Show

Treat yourself to a day filled with creativity, culture and, of course, great art. The historic Lincoln Galleries at Yellow Springs are home to this year’s juried art show, featuring a wide variety of works by some the finest artists living and working in the Delaware Valley and beyond.

Over 200 artists were selected to showcase their best work—everything from paintings, drawings, graphics and three-dimensional works. You’ll recognize art show favorites—like Brad Earl, Joe Jacobs, Teresa Haag and Helena van Emmerik-Finn—alongside 23 newcomers eager to impress.

Kids will love the treasure hunt with prizes, and adults can wind down at the Wine and Cheese Happy Hour, May 5 from 5:30 to 8 p.m.

An artful way to round out Mother’s Day!

Through May 14. Daily: 10 to 4. 610-827-7414; YellowSprings.org
