    Calling all members! Be sure to join us on Sunday, December 8 from 12-2. Feel free to bring a "plus one" for a very merry holiday party! Please register so we know how many people to count on. 

    Brunch will be provided, so come hungry!

    Art Gift Exchange
    An art gift exchange will take place at 1:30 pm. If you’d like to participate, please bring a small wrapped work (approximately 12″x12″x12″ or smaller), and you’ll be able to go home with another member’s original. Artwork should be original to you and should be something you’re proud of, but could be anything from a painting or sculpture, to jewelry, to a hand made scarf.

    Small Art Project
    This year we'll be offering paper quilling to keep your fingers busy and you can go home with your original creation!

    Holiday and Art HIstory Trivia
    Gain bragging rights and go home with a parting gift (courtesy of Office Depot, Centerville) if you're one of the top scorers in our holiday/art history trivia!

    Free Frames
    Various frames of different sizes and materials have been donated to the DSA. Adopt them and give them a good home otherwise, they'll be heading to goodwill!

    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.
