YAMSEN:SpeciallyMusic Art Exhibition 2021

Welcome to the 38th annual YAMSEN celebration of Art!

The theme this year is togetherness.

The exhibition is open to anyone of any age who has a learning disability or additional needs.  Entrants were welcome to enter a digital photo or document of their artform based on one the categories of:

  • Winter Holidays
  • We All Fit Together (puzzle pieces)
  • Together on Zoom
  • Togetherness

YAMSEN has decided to make the art exhibition non-competitive.  Now it is more open to all kinds of art, including collaborative art, 3D art and poetry.  Thank you to Annie Conway of Swarthmore Education Centre for creating the content ideas for the letter.

Winter in the Country
a poem by Peter Olby
from YAM

A wild wintery wind –
The leaves have left
The trees are bare
Stretching their naked arms
To the dark cloud-rolling sky
All nature has left its summer beauty behind

Stark wonderous black countryside
Fills our gaze
The world has come to rest
Till Spring stirs anew
But winter has its own beauties
Moss covered walls
Jack Frost’s paintings
Like shimmering white lace
The darkened sky spotted
With sparkling stars
Beautiful ghostly moonbeams
Cast shadows –

How much I love all
These beautiful winter gifts
From Mother Nature
