    Salons originated in the 17th and 18th century as social gatherings of individuals who engaged in the art of conversation in pursuit of knowledge and fellowship.

    The DSA's salon follows this tradition focusing on the visual arts and building community through the membership of the DSA.

    Each month a member is highlighted and attendees are encouraged to bring work(s) in progress or completed work to share and talk about.

    Come and meet fellow Miami Valley artists and enjoy looking at and talking about art!

    Bring a work in progress to critique, or a concept to talk about.

    This is a FREE event - come and enjoy constructive conversation!

    Introducing...Mary Beth Whitley and Encaustics



    Sunday, March 8, 1:30-4:30
    Join the DSA and Mary Beth Whitley for a demo and talk about her work that integrates nature, photography and the encaustic process at the Dayton Society of Artists: Sunday, March 8, 1:30-4:30 pm.

Materials for the workshop will be provided by the artist and a $5 material fee has been included in the workshop cost. $20 Members, $12 Student Members, $30 Non-Members. Register today!

    Mary Beth Whitley
    Mary Beth Whitley was born and raised in southern Ohio on a dirt road in Tick Ridge. Her childhood home was surrounded by farmland, seven acres of woods and the Little Scioto River. Unrestricted hours playing in the woods and fields formed her artistic values and aesthetics. She received her BFA in Graphic Design with a focus in drawing and illustration from Ohio University. While attending Ohio University, she received the Charles Logan Smith Award of Excellence in Graphic Design and graduated Magna Cum.

    After graduation, she moved to Dayton and worked briefly at the design agency before starting a family. She became a docent at the Dayton Art Institute, then became a member of the Education Department. While working at the museum, she was named Museum Educator of the Year by the Ohio Art Education Association. Once she retired, she began creating her own art. Inspired by nature, she uses her iPhone to create photographs which are made into digital c-prints and combined with refined beeswax. Through the work, she encourages viewers to be mindful of the nature surrounding us and of our connection to the cycle of life.

    Whitley was selected to be an ArtSource Fellowship Recipient. Her work has been included in numerous group exhibitions including the Dayton Society of Artists, The Contemporary, Rosewood Arts Centre, Front Street Warehouse, The Holzer Center, The Blue House, Miami Township Branch Library, The Dairy Barn, as well as solo shows at Christopher’s restaurant and Antioch University Midwest.

    Introducing...Connie Grant and Wax Resist Watercolors



    Wednesday, March 18, 6-9pm
    Join the DSA and Connie Grant for a demo and talk about her batik (wax resist) work at the Dayton Society of Artists: Wednesday, March 18, 6-9 pm. A hands-on workshop for batik will be offered following the demo and talk. Materials for the workshop will be provided by the artist. $15 Members, $7 Student Members, $25 Non-Members. Register today!

    Connie Grant
    As an artist and art educator, my experiences include gallery director, museum educator, and school art teacher. I’ve also exhibited my own work in gallery settings and street shows. Experimenting with a variety of media over the years, I now focus on oil painting and batik (wax resist).

    The process of batik, or using wax resist to create an image, has long fascinated me. My early batiks were of the true form, utilizing natural fabrics, dyes, beeswax and techniques that honored age-old traditions. However, I now use an altered approach with rice paper, watercolors, and wax as a resist. With the natural world as my inspiration, I hope to communicate the magical, surreal beauty of the world around us.

    Introducing...Bob Coates and Clay Sculpture



    Thursday
    , June 25, 6-9pm
    Join the DSA for a Clay Sculpture workshop lead by Bob Coates at the High Street Gallery. Workshop includes demo and talk by the artist followed by an opportunity to make a pinch-pot out of clay to take home with you (note: clay will not be fired, so pots will be for decorative purposes only).  Registration is limited. $17 Members, $9 Student Members, $27 Non-Members. Register Today!

    Bob Coates
    I work with clay, bronze, and mixed media. Some of my work has its roots in ancient cultures, in which natural atmospheric forces are often personified as gods and goddesses. For example, in ancient Greece, times of day, heavenly bodies, and the earth were embodied in mythical persona. My pieces speak of the beauty and flow of the natural world, and they reflect my concern for and love of the earth.

    Bob currently teaches at Sinclair Community College and has exhibited his work in numerous solo and group exhibitions all around Ohio.

    Join Saint Anne's Hill for PorchFest 2020!

    Taking place in the historic St. Anne's Hill Historic District - Dayton, Ohio neighborhood, just east of downtown, Dayton Porchfest celebrates our rich and diverse music scene, with musicians and bands covering funk and blues to indie rock and jazz, classical and country, to bluegrass and old-timey that has deep Appalachian roots here. We also celebrate the ethnic diversity of the region, a reflection of our "Welcome Dayton" spirit that has contributed to a significant influx of immigrants and refugees over the past decade. And it all takes place in a family-friend environment in the St. Anne's Hill Historic District, just east of downtown.

    Dayton Porchfest is organized by The Collaboratory, a non-profit incubator for community enterprises and initiatives, located in Talbott Tower. Proceeds from Porchfest go to support the work of The Collaboratory.
