About the Yeiser Art Center

The Yeiser Art Center (YAC), a non-profit corporation with 501(c)(3) status, was established in 1957 as the Paducah Art Guild for the purpose of promoting the appreciation of the visual arts and for their creation. As a strong voice for the visual arts in our community, YAC continues to promote the visual arts by presenting dynamic exhibitions and programs. The exhibitions are chosen to showcase a diverse range of art forms, styles, and techniques with work ranging from traditional to contemporary.

The center provides the regional community the opportunity to view original artworks; provides a forum for artists; and serves as an educational resource for schools, colleges and community organizations. Through our exhibitions and programs, YAC provides art experiences for children while advocating the importance of a good visual arts education in our local schools. We work to help interpret the visual arts to the region by promoting established and emerging, regional, and national artists.
