The Annual Members Show is generously sponsored every year by Ray Black & Sons in honor of founding member Ginny Black. The exhibition showcases recent artistic work from YAC Members in a single comprehensive exhibition. YAC members are diverse in their practice, ranging from quilters, painters, and sculptors to poets, performers, and video artists.
This will be a diverse and interesting show as members are encouraged to think outside of the box with their submissions.
