YOUNGSTOWN — YWCA Mahoning Valley is accepting entries for its 38th annual "Women Artists: A Celebration!" art exhibition from June 26 to July 24 at YWCA’s Youngstown location, 25 W. Rayen Ave.

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

Returning for a third time is a juried show for young women age 14 to 17 from Mahoning and Trumbull counties. The show will feature 17 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.

Entries are due by April 6. Entry forms for both shows are available at YWCA’s offices in Youngstown and Warren and on the YWCA’s website.

Janice Lessman-Moss, professor and head of textiles at the Center for Visual Arts at Kent State University, will serve as the juror for the show.

A ticketed preview party will take place from 6 to 9 p.m. June 26 at the YWCA. Proceeds benefit YWCA housing programs. More than $2,000 in prize money will be awarded to artists at the party.
