 YOUNGSTOWN—YWCA Mahoning Valley is accepting entries for its 37th Annual Women Artists: A Celebration! Art Show to be held June 28 to July 26, 2019 at YWCA’s downtown Youngstown office at 25 W. Rayen Ave.

The art exhibition showcases work by local, regional, and national women artists. The juried show features all media, including paintings, drawings, photographs, fiber art, sculpture, ceramics, jewelry, videography, and metal work.

Returning for a second time is a juried show for young women ages 14 to 17 from Mahoning and Trumbull counties. The show will feature seventeen works selected by jurors from the YWCA Women Artists Committee, and will run in conjunction with the Women Artists show. Two-dimensional work is eligible for the 17 Under 17 show.

Entry forms for both shows are available at YWCA’s offices in Youngstown and Warren and on the YWCA’s website at ywcamahoningvalley.org/women-artists.

Entries are due by April 8. Priscilla Roggenkamp, Associate Professor of Art at Ashland University, will serve as the juror for the 2019 show.

A ticketed Preview Party will be held on Friday, June 28 from 6 to 9 pm at the YWCA. Proceeds benefit YWCA Housing Programs. More than $2,000 in prize money will be awarded to artists at the party.
