The Yukon Art Society (YAS) was founded in April of 1970. It is the oldest visual arts organization in the Yukon. The size and longevity of YAS can be explained in part by our inclusiveness policy. Any visual artist, at any stage of development, working in any medium, is welcome to become a member of YAS. Our mandate is to foster the creative and professional development of Yukon visual artists at all levels through exhibitions, education, networking and complementary activities with wide community appeal.
Arts Underground is a community space dedicated to the exploration, teaching and presentation of visual arts and heritage through a partnership between the Yukon Art Society (YAS), Yukon Arts Centre (YAC), Friends of the Yukon Archives Society (FOYAS), and MacBride Museum of Yukon History. The space and utilities are generously donated by the Hougen Group of Companies. The facility houses the Yukon Art Society offices, galleries, studio, gallery shop, and The Cupboard art supply store and the Hougen Heritage Gallery.
