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!

Quick snap with a cell phone camera to share how “Chasing Yellow” pops with an earthy forestry green mat in a 20×24 inch black frame.
The colors are slightly off… like the mat is one solid color, does not fade to black as it seems to do in this photo. As they say, it looks better in person.
Would you like to come see it?
If so, mark your calendar. “Chasing Yellow” will be in the “31st Annual Women Artists: A Celebration!” show at the YWCA building located at 25 W. Rayen Avenue (near YSU) in beautiful downtown Youngstown, Ohio, between June 22 and July 19, 2013.
Yes, Chasing Yellow is for sale. Nothing like plugging your own work, but I really hope it sells at this show as the sale commission will help support a worthy cause.
So come see… if you like it, consider buying it. Or just vote for me. The art with the most votes wins the People’s Choice Award. Thanks for peeking!
