Welcome to YASSarts
The Yass Valley region, just north of the Australian National Capital, Canberra, boasts a remarkable variety of talent in the field of arts, either in people who choose to live here or who have been raised in this region
YASSarts is a not for profit incorporated organization run by volunteers with the aim of celebrating arts & culture in the Yass Valley region. The website’s purpose is to be that of an inventory – a kind of listing of all individuals or groups working within the arts, whether professional or amateur, within the Yass Valley.
The website also provides other facilities for your benefit such as an ‘Calendar’ of events, a ‘News’ section and links to various related points of interest
Through the website and YASSarts’ associated activities, we also attempt to provide a platform and profile for those who may not be career arts practitioners, but whose work is no less noteworthy.
Concurrently, we hope to assist and encourage local government and the community in harnessing the cultural tourism potential of our regional arts through events and, where possible, to be supportive of and provide assistance for, our local arts community.

Opening 21st November with a showcase of Yass arts in all its forms
Michaela Pothan and her team have been hard at work bringing 289 Comur St back to life. For one month from 21 Nov the space will be alive with a taste of art pieces from across the Yass region.
To make this happen and be as FABULOUS as possible, Michaela needs you (and your art), specifically one piece from each of you by 15 Nov. Medium, size, style are no barriers. Works must be for sale. All details and gallery form can be seen on our new Tootsie page! See Here
YASSarts Inc is proud to support Tootsie and we look forward to seeing diverse works on display. We welcome there being another place for the community to gather and appreciate art and a space for us all to learn and discover through workshops and exhibitions. CONGRATS Michaela.
