Dan Oils, Y Arts Center Artist in ResidenceWe are thrilled to welcome Dan Oils as our latest Artist-in-Residence at the YMCA of Frederick County! Dan’s journey from novice to accomplished artist in just two years is inspiring. His dedication, passion, and transformative artwork have left a lasting impression on the art community locally and beyond.

What sets Dan apart is not just his artistic talent, but his deep connection to his surroundings and his desire to give back to his community. His collections, “Sugarloaf Mountain” and “Trippin’ Down Memory Lane,” are not just reflections of his artistic vision; they are love letters to his roots, his experiences, and the places that have shaped him.

Dan’s decision to apply for the Artist-in-Residence program at the YMCA of Frederick County was driven by a desire to further his artistic journey, expand his creative horizons, and reconnect with his local community. With his intimate knowledge of downtown Frederick and his commitment to sharing his knowledge and passion for art, Dan is not just seeking a space to create; he’s seeking an opportunity to inspire, teach, and foster connections.

As our Artist-in-Residence, Dan will bring his unique perspective, talent, and passion for community engagement to our YMCA family. We are excited to see how his presence will enrich our community and inspire all who encounter his work.
