The Yeiser Art Center gallery has been a visual arts gallery staple in Paducah since the 1950's.

The YAC’s goal is to provide access to professional and amateur visual art, and art education programs for people of all ages. With the addition of a new executive director, YAC is renewing its focus on reaching the community.

Paducah’s Yeiser Art Center opens a solo exhibition of Southern Indiana artist Rob Millard-Mendez later this month.

Drew Adams speaks with Mendez about his work and sense of humor. The opening reception for Rob Millard Mendez’s “A Futile Armada” is Saturday, August 18th at Paducah’s Yeiser Art Center.
