January 10, 2017 • Page 10 Art Forms shop online at www.missourivalleyshopper.com New At The Library A Great 2017 BY JULIE J. AMSBERRY Yankton Area Arts Another year in the books, and what a year it was! We started 2016 with photography classes and book signings, then continued with woodworking workshops and partnerships with the library and the Cramer-Kenyon Heritage Home. We filled our hall with exhibits ranging from kids artwork to dress sculptures. The Master Gardeners helped us beautify GAR Hall with plants and flowers on the south side of the building, and we gained three new board members! In 2016 our art gallery saw hundreds of visitors from three countries and 25 states! We have so many things to be thankful for, including all the amazing artists and volunteers who helped with our Tour of Homes and Crimson Door Holiday Boutique in December. Once again this year, Yankton showed up to celebrate and support local and area artists during the Crimson Door. We will continue to have Julie some of the items on sale year round in our gift shop. As 2017 blows in, YAA is prepping for another great exhibit year. Starting off the season, we welcome local makeup artist Rebecca Swift to the gallery. Rebecca is making a name for herself nationally with her celebrity and character transformations. She has transformed her own face into over 100 celebrities, including Ellen DeGeneres, Taylor Swift, Michael Phelps and the President-Elect, and characters such as Hermione Granger, Katniss Everdeen, Marge Simpson and Chip, the cup from AMSBERRY Beauty and the Beast. Her talent landed her a spot last November on the NBC television show “Caught on Camera with Nick Cannon.” Rebecca will also have photos on display of her transformations as well as a few of her paintings and drawings. Come see this locally grown talent Jan. 20-Feb. 28. We will hold a reception where you can speak with Rebecca on Friday, Feb. 3, from 5-7 p.m. at GAR Hall. Other exhibits this year include art students from Sacred Heart Middle School and Yankton Middle School during Youth Art Month. Springfield native Travis Halsey is a designer known for costuming major ballet companies throughout the country. Jane Stimpson is a local painter whose artwork looks extremely lifelike. Jennifer White is a Yankton artist who has opened her own gallery in Sioux Falls called Post Pilgrim Gallery.
