(Posters from the late 60s and early 70s)
September 17 – November 14
York College Galleries (*main campus is closed to visitors)
Artist Talk/Q&A: October 14, 7:00 PM, Zoom

Social history meets great graphic design. This collection of iconic posters captures the turbulence of the late 1960s and early 1970s, revealing a complicated range of youthful optimism and discontent from exuberant psychedelic concert posters to works challenging oppressive social structures and the Vietnam War.

Jessi Hardesty: Beyond the Veil

Artist Talk/Interview: TBD (via Zoom)

This year’s YCASE Juror is Baltimore-based artist Jessi Hardesty, the Director of Visual Art and Curator at Carroll Community College. An anxious mark maker, she channels her need to liaise with the forgotten, the secret, and the macabre through the ritual labor of woodcut.

When the Bough Breaks
October 24  – December 12
3rd Floor, Marketview Arts
Artist Talk/Interview: October 23, 7:00PM, Zoom

This exhibition, curated by Susanne Slavick, pairs work by contemporary artists with texts exploring how the reality or representation of trees can offer solace and space, for the necessity of talking and listening, in the face of ongoing human conflict and impending climate catastrophe.

The following exhibitions were postponed this summer and we hope to reschedule them in 2021:

Postponed from June. Dates TBD, Marketview Arts

This exhibition is a surrealist introspection into the constant work of understanding and reconciling the baggage of the past. Through colorful figurative and landscape paintings and conceptual sculpture, questions about the role of nature, nurture, lineage and mysticism come forward in bold symbolic honesty.

Ashley3Skin, featuring the work of Osymn Oree, Ashley Moog Bowlsbey, June Yong Lee
Postponed from June. Dates TBD, Marketview Arts

This exhibition features the work of three photographers exploring the theme of skin; June Yong Lee of Philadelphia, Ashley Moog Bowlsbey of York, and Osmyn Oree of Lancaster. The work, both beautiful and haunting, renders the theme at times metaphorically but also with intense detail.

WeAgreeTP1500Taring Padi: Art Smashing Tyranny (Postponed Indefinitely)
Postponed from March. Dates TBD, Marketview Arts

Taring Padi is an underground activist artist collective in Yogyakarta, Indonesia that formed during the upheaval surrounding the fall of Suharto. Their work denounces corruption, environmental exploitation, inequality and violence while advocating for the poor and dispossessed. This exhibition and related events have been postponed. Given the current uncertainty, we’ll have to wait until the COVID-19 crisis has passed in both the U.S. and Indonesia before rescheduling these events.
