Every year the Yeiser Art Center proudly hosts an Annual Members Show to honor its members and showcase their artistic works in a single comprehensive exhibition.
YAC Members are diverse in their artistic practices and mediums and include (but are not limited to) fiber artists, sculptors, painters, poets, performers, and photographers. Ray Black & Sons generously sponsors this exhibition each year, in memory of founding Yeiser Art Center member, Virginia Black.
This year, we have the pleasure of partnering with The Carson Center, as part of its celebration of Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury. As an initiative of the National Endowment for the Arts in partnership with Arts Midwest, the NEA Big Read broadens our understanding of our world, our communities, and ourselves through the joy of sharing a good book.
Artists interested in submitting work for the Yeiser Art Center Members Show in 2020 are encouraged to follow the theme of “Censorship in Art.” Each Yeiser Art Center member with a current membership is eligible to submit one piece of artwork for free, additional pieces for $20 each.
All art must be accompanied by label information that includes the following: artist name, title of work, date created, medium, price (YAC retains a 40% commission of sales) or NFS (not for sale), and a short statement (preferably one paragraph) that explains how the artwork relates to the theme of “Censorship in Art.” If you do not submit a statement, your work can be included in the exhibition, but will not be considered for the monetary awards.
Josh Morehead will be choosing awards for the 2020 exhibition. Josh is the Director of Education and Assistant Director of Development at The Carson Center for the Performing Arts. He is currently working on a Certificate of Fundraising Management from the Lilly Family School of Philanthropy at Indiana University. Josh is a Paducah native and loves witnessing the arts flourish in our community.
