Dayton Visual Arts Center

DVAC is fifteen years old and celebrating its birthday with an all-member show in its new space at 118 North Jefferson Street in Dayton. The gallery is a great venue for such a show, with lots of wall space to hang pieces of every size and shape. I visited the show yesterday and was impressed with the wide range of creative arts represented. Pastel, oil, watercolor, acrylic, graphite, clay and fibers are just a few of the media used. Collage, assemblage, weaving, quilting, ceramics, sculpture and metalworking are some of the techniques. Skill levels range from amateur to accomplished professional. I love a show with that kind of diversity, even though I don't necessarily like all of the work I see. Tables and columns display the three-dimensional pieces, which are sometimes overlooked if you tend to pay more attention to the art on the walls. Don't miss them! The show wasn't juried, but will be judged for awards. It will be a difficult job with so many fine pieces to choose from.
