The Davis Family YMCA will host its 3rd annual FIVE-Squared benefit art show and sale Feb. 7-Mar. 7 at the McClurg Road facility.
An opening reception, free and open to the public, will be held on Sun., Feb. 7, from 1:00 p.m. to 2:30 p.m.
This year more than 200 local, national, and international artists have donated 610 five-inch by five-inch pieces of art. Among the donations are pieces from disabled children at a Russian orphanage. All of the art, both amateur and professional, is offered for sale for $25 (adult) or $10 (youth) each.
In addition, seven larger works will be presented at a silent auction, featuring pieces by local artists Al Bright, Nancy Hawkins, Jim O’Malley, Paula Smith, Gary Taneri and Don Wright,
All proceeds from the event fund the Art Outreach project, which makes it possible for under-served children in Youngstown to receive art lessons.
All of the art can be viewed online at ymcaart.blogspot.com. For more information, call (330)-480-5656.
Suzanne Gray is the Davis YMCA Arts & Humanities coordinator.
