The theme of this year’s member show was “Blue.” Members were challenged to create works inspired by “Blue” in any medium – the blue sky, a blue eye, or the deep blue sea. Blues music, a sad emotion or perhaps the sound of the word. Our artists rose to the challenge and result was beautiful. We celebrated the opening of the show on June 3 and presented awards.
We lost a valuable member of our organization on June 14.
Susan Powell was a member of the Yorktown Arts Foundation Board of Directors and worked behind the scenes on the reopening of On The Hill Gallery, and keeping it successful ever since.
Her contributions are many. She wrote grants, solicited donations and supported artists in any way she could. As the founder of Art at the River, she gave artists the opportunity to sell their work and gain exposure to the public in a beautiful waterfront setting.
With her passing, there is a void that no one person can fill. We will miss her tremendously.
YAF members and friends.
