Members Show – Salvaged for a Purpose

A new exhibit has opened at On the Hill Gallery in historic Yorktown. Using the theme, “Salvaged for a Purpose” where artists have repurposed a variety of objects turning them into works of art. It is worth the visit to see a necklace designed with bottle tops entitled “16 Beers”. Look closely at the polychrome framed painting entitled “Meat Tray #6”, to see it is a large meat tray palette framed with old rulers. Kudos to all the artists who participated and created work not mentioned here. All artwork is for sale, your purchase not only helps the artists support themselves, but saves the local landfill from receiving treasures turned into art. The show will run until May 31st with a reception open to the public on May 14th. Ribbons will awarded to artists in recognition of their work and their interpretation of the “Salvaged” theme.


The Yorktown Arts Foundation was created in 1976 to promote an appreciation of the arts in the York County area, by providing a venue for art sales by local artists, art education, art outreach, and generally promotes art appreciation and participation in the visual arts. Throughout its history, the Foundation has remained committed to its original objectives to promote and support the arts through programs and other endeavors for the benefit of the citizens of York County and the surrounding area. By operating a gallery, the Foundation provided an opportunity for local and regional artists to display their works. Further, through the conduct of featured shows, many of which are juried, our artists are provided an opportunity to showcase their work for the public, and to increase their knowledge of art through the association with other artists and jurors.
