SARATOGA SPRINGS — Saratoga Arts hosts the Opening Night of multi-disciplinary artist Yuko Edwards’ on-going series from 5 – 7 p.m. on Friday, July 14. 

Edwards, who was born in 1975 in Iowa City lives and works in Bristol, England. Her work addresses concepts of self and social identity.

“Homestead: You Are Here” will be on view in our Atrium Gallery this summer. The series began when the artist was a resident of Saratoga Springs and took solo walks throughout the city. On those walks, she saw reflections of her own family in the landscape, memories from the past as well as possible new futures. The photographic works raise questions of belonging and evoke the existence of the Black community and its energy. 

Saratoga Arts is the community arts center located on the corner of Congress Park and Broadway in downtown Saratoga Springs. In its 30-plus years, Saratoga Arts has brought the arts to over 1 million people through its programs and provided performing and visual artists opportunities to earn over $3 million in art sales and performance fees.
