new art gallery to open downtown

A new art gallery will soon be opening at 25 West Federal Street in downtown youngstown, and the the public is invited to provide works and join the opening reception.

Taking some tidbits from their press release . . .

“The Inaugural Exhibition”

Art Youngstown, with Denise Powell of James & Weaver, will proudly present their Inaugural Exhibition - the first in a series of exhibitions by local artists.

The Inaugural Exhibition will be held on Friday, November 23rd at 7:30 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. Doors open at 7:00 p.m. Gallery open Saturday, November 24th noon-6:00 p.m. All proceeds benefit Art Youngstown.

The Inaugural Exhibition will kick off with a reception that is free of charge to the public. Refreshments will be offered. It is time for downtown Youngstown to have a venue in which local artists can display and sell their art. Attendees will have the opportunity to view art from their family, friends and neighbors.

Artists (18 and older) interested in submitting piece(s) of art of any medium (limit 2 pieces) should go to their website for additional details. Phone numbers and emails are provided on their website if you have any additional questions about pre-registration, drop-off, or pick-up.

Individuals interested in attending the Inaugural Exhibition or purchasing sponsorship should contact Joy or Sarah, whose contact information is available here.

I also noticed Star Supply is now a sponsor.
