    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!

Utilizing zoom and other technology the DSA was able to quickly maneuver much of their programming to the virtual realm after COVID-19 shut things down.

        Danielle Rante
        Sourcing material directly from the environments she visits, Danielle Rante’s mixed media practice incorporates site-specific field research into geographical happenings, direct interaction with the landscape and its inhabitants, and meditative mark-making. Akin to a botanist collecting live plant specimens in the wild, or an astronomist mapping locations beyond the earth’s atmosphere, Rante is interested in the meeting place between the physical environment we encounter and the narratives of a place. She explores our cultural subjectivity in relation to historical events or shifts in the landscape, investigating collective and personal speculation.

        Danielle Rante has exhibited work nationally and internationally including K. Imperial Fine Art (San Francisco, CA), International Print Center New York (NY, NY) and both the China Art Museum and University of Art Museum in Shanghai. She has been a recipient of many grants, including the Ohio Art Council’s Individual Excellence award and has attended residencies at Arteles Creative Center (Finland), Kala Art Institute (Berkeley, CA), Headlands Center for the Arts (Sausalito, CA), NES Artist Residency (Iceland), Fine Arts Work Center (Provincetown, MA), and Philadelphia Art Hotel (Philadelphia, PA). And her work is held in public and private collections worldwide. Danielle lives and works in Dayton, Ohio. She is currently an Associate Professor of Printmaking and Drawing at Wright State University. She received her MFA in printmaking from the University of Iowa in 2006.
