Illustrator Day Recap! by Virginia Law Manning

Thank you for coming out to Illustrator Day 2015! We hope everyone enjoyed the day’s events, connecting with fellow artists and the idyllic scenery at the lovely Artists of Yardley!

The EPA SCBWI chapter is very grateful to the Artists of Yardley for making their farmhouse and grounds available to us. Several attendees asked to know more about this arts organization so we thought we’d share this information with all attendees. Below, please find a link to their website and general information about the organization.

We hope many of you will have opportunities to visit the AOY again, either for classes, workshops, or to see an exhibition. Their new show “Local Color” officially opens September 18th (we were all fortunate to enjoy a sneak peek during Illustrator Day).

Thank you again for your enthusiastic participation!

Here’s a little more info about Artists of Yardley….

“Artists of Yardley (AOY) is a non-profit organization, dedicated to nurturing the creative spirit of the community by educating and encouraging individuals to experience, appreciate and share in the arts. Established in 2004, we continue to grow with over 250 members, exhibiting professionals and all others interested in the visual arts.  In 2010, AOY adopted the historic Janney House on Patterson Farm in Yardley, PA as their new home and art center. Located in the heart of Bucks County, the panoramic views of the surrounding farmland complements the organization’s aesthetic tenor.

The AOY offers classes in all media, weekend workshops and summer camps for children and young adults. Our exciting and innovative programs are taught by professional-level instructors.

Throughout the year, AOY hosts a vast array of opportunities for artists to bring their work to the public, including juried and non- juried shows along with indoor and outdoor fund-raising and social events.

The Artists of Yardley invites the community to participate. Be involved in this unique organization! Our monthly gatherings are lively and informative, a time to hear about what is going on with the group, discuss goals and plans, meet and get to know fellow artists. Meetings are open to the public and held in the AOY Art Center, 949 Mirror Lake Road, Yardley, PA on the first Wednesday of each month at 7:00 PM.”
