Thomases Art Gallery

The Thomases Family Endowment of the Youngstown Area Jewish Federation Art Gallery is located in the main hall of Jewish Community Center of Youngstown. The gallery hosts six to seven exhibitions per year, primarily showcasing diverse artistic perspectives from local and regional artists and also showing the work of artists from across the United States. Exhibitions typically run for six weeks with an artist reception held to open the show.  At least one exhibition every year focuses on a Jewish cultural connection.

The Thomases Gallery Exhibitions Committee reviews proposals for exhibitions several times per year, and artists are encouraged to apply at any time.  Submission of materials does not constitute automatic acceptance into programming.  The curator and exhibitions committee reserve the right to selection of artists, and their artwork, based on quality and display requirements.

Eligibility is open to artists 18 years or older.  Interested artists should send an artist statement, resume or curriculum vitae, 4 or more images (JPG or PDF), and an image list indicating title, dimensions, medium, and date to

About the Exhibition:

The Mahoning Valley Watercolor Society was founded in 1982 by eleven area artists; their goal was to encourage local watercolor painters. The Society provides watercolorists with a place to share work, to learn more about watercolor technique, and to get information about relevant events in the community. While primarily focusing on watercolor, they also encourage members’ exploration of other artistic media.
