Four participants of our art program had their artwork shown in the 2023 Inspiring Women Project Art Exhibit sponsored by The YWCA of NorthEastern NY and C.R.E.A.T.E. Community Studios. This inclusive event showcased local artists through an exhibit designed to empower and celebrate the accomplishments of all women and non-binary persons.

The artworks of Crystal, Christina, Katie, and Debbie were featured alongside those of YWCA residents, clients, staff, and other talented community members for a truly inclusive exhibit. An artist reception kicked off the weeklong art show that took place at the YWCA of Northeastern NY in Schenectady, NY.
