Fall Open Studio and Art Sale
November 17, 18 and 24, 2012
Noon – 5PM
1024 Mahoning Ave.
Youngstown, OH. 44502
The Artists of the Mahoning Commons are located in the Old Ward Baking Company on lower Mahoning Avenue across from the U-Haul building (formerly Isaly’s Dairy). Our Open Studio events are held twice a year, in late November and early May. We have been holding these events for nearly a decade. It has taken a lot of work and dedication from our members, yet is has been truly rewarding to promote arts and culture here in Youngstown, Ohio.
Each season we have upwards of forty artists who participate. Studios are opened and artists have displays in the hallways. The majority of the participants are professionals who have attended art schools across the country. You will see paintings, pottery, sculpture, drawings, photography, jewelry, and an amazing array of handmade crafts. In addition Jerry Treharn, owner of the building, will have special tours of his fine Victorian furniture shop. Five floors of this huge building will be open.
Perhaps our biggest attraction is our Silent Auction. Every participating artist is required to donate a quality item. In addition, many local businesses donate gift certificates. Jerry Treharn, maker of fine tiger maple furniture, contributes pieces as well.
