McKeesport Art Group's 59th annual Spring Art Show will be held from May 19 to 21 at Jacob Woll Pavilion, Renziehausen Park.

Group president Jan Catalogna said artists of all types and skill levels --- including pen and ink artists, painters, watercolorists, sculptors and photographers --- are encouraged to participate. The show also has a special category for student artists.

To enter, visit the McKeesport Art Group website and download the entry form, or call (412) 469-2710, Catalogna said.

In addition, this year's show will include an instructional painting class at 1 p.m. May 20. No previous art classes or training are necessary, she said, and participants of all skill levels are invited.

An instructor will show all participants, step by step, how to create a beautiful painting. All supplies will be provided along with a light lunch, Catalogna said, and the cost is $20 per person.

Space for the class is limited and reservations are being accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. To register, call Catalogna at (412) 469-2710 or email jacat99@aol.com.

In addition to an exhibit of art works entered by contestants, there also will be art available for sale from McKeesport Art Group members, she said.

Hours are 5 to 9 p.m. May 19, 12 noon to 8 p.m. May 20, and 12 noon to 6 p.m. May 21.
