    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...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.

    Introducing...
    The purpose of the workshop series, Introducing..., is to acquaint DSA members and the community to different mediums and methods in the visual arts. In conjunction, the attendees will get to know the instructing artist, their background, and tips and tricks of their trade. The fee goes to compensate the artists’ time, so by attending you’ll not only gain knowledge in a specific medium, but you’ll also be supporting local artists! Future workshops may have an additional hands-on project, and in those cases an additional fee will be added to cover material costs.

    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.
