THE SOAP GALLERY | CREATING A POSITIVE IMAGE FOR THE ARTS IN YOUNGSTOWN

THE SOAP GALLERY | CREATING A POSITIVE IMAGE FOR THE ARTS IN YOUNGSTOWN

With the knowledge that more then 500 creatives and artists live within 10 miles of downtown Youngstown, Danial Rauschenbach and Stephen Poullas decided to open a gallery to showcase the great work that is pouring out of this region. 90% of what they are showing is coming from regional and local artists, increasing the public's perception of what is being created both locally and regionally.

Ultimately, they are striving to instill an appreciation for handmade things and goods not being mass produced by machinery, giving residents a place to view and purchase decor and art instead of having to depend on Target and Walmart.

SOAP also offers classes ranging from painting and pottery to yoga.  They begin each month with a new show launching the first Friday of every month.  
 

You can find out more about the classes, openings, and calls for artists on SOAP's Facebook page. As well as the website.
