View the DSA's latest exhibition virtually! Intertwined features fiber art and brings together artists from all over the US together into once space. Our own local Dayton-based artist, Heather Jones, juried the exhibition for us and narrowed down over 240 submissions to 32 pieces that work beautifully together.  The artwork you’ll see is incredibly crafted. Using traditional methods in innovative ways, these artists explore voice, reactions to change of environment, women’s issues, creating individual spaces, and the passing on of art, craft, and culture to name a few.

The exhibition will be shown physically in the High Street Gallery sometime in 2021.

The Dayton Society of Artists (DSA) is pleased to present ILLUMINATE, a lens-based exhibition. The call for art was open to all artists, 18 years or older and living or working in Ohio, Indiana, or Kentucky. Amy Powell and Gary Beeber are this year's jurors. Support for this exhibition is provided by FotoFocus.

Illuminate: The theme, illuminate, explores not only how light is necessary for viewing an object or scene, but also how light brings to view the physical that may have been passed over or unexplored. In addition, the theme delves into intangibles such as mood, ideas, concepts, issues or other topics that may need to be brought to light.

FotoFocus Biennial: Now canceled due to COVID-19: The FotoFocus Biennial, activates over 100 museums, galleries, universities, and public spaces throughout Greater Cincinnati, Northern Kentucky, Dayton and Columbus, Ohio. Each Biennial is structured around a unifying theme; for 2020 that theme, light&, explores light and its contrasts in relation to photography and lens-based art, and the world at large. FotoFocus welcomes global artists, curators, critics, educators, and regional visitors to Cincinnati with exhibitions, talks, performances, screenings, and panel discussions during a concentrated week of programming.
