DISCLAIMER: The Second Tuesday Open Poetry Reading is facilitated by Jim Villani.  I’m just an attendee trying to help get the word out… it is a small group, we need more people. This post has not been “approved” by anyone. Button image below is from YBWorks, my little button biz, and not the name of any local poetry anything. I’m adding it just for grins because if I don’t add a photo in this post, a default image will pop up when shared on social media. Please see the Facebook event page if you need a map or more information.  Thank you!

NEXT READING:  September 8, 2015 (location to be announced)

Call for 5×7 Donations

5X7 Artwork Donation

A share for our local YWCA.  I donate because their housing programs help homeless women and women at risk of homelessness (with or without children) right here in Youngstown, Ohio.

The juried “Women Artists: A Celebration!” show is an annual fundraiser for a worthy cause that attracts a nice crowd of art collectors and benefactors. It is very well presented.  The donation display is like a show within a show.

Last year was the first year of including donated 5×7 art and most of the art donated was from local artists and/or artists known by someone on the art committee.  They were amazed to receive a donation from an artist in Chicago, so I think it would be really cool and totally blow their minds if donated art arrives from all over everywhere. So, feel free to share!

Thank you!
