The DSA will again promote Buy ART, Buy LOCAL this holiday season with beautiful, affordable artwork. All art will be priced under $400. Prizes will be awarded for first place, second place, and third place totaling $700 and will be juried by Peter L. Doebler, Ph.D. from the Dayton Art Institute.

JUROR: Peter L. Doebler is the Kettering Curator of Asian Art at the Dayton Art Institute. He specializes in religious aesthetics, especially Japanese and Euro-American traditions. During his time in Dayton, Peter has curated focus exhibitions across the museum’s collection, including "Impressive: 100 Years of Japanese Prints at the DAI," "Buddhist Art: An Enlightened Thread through Asia," and "Devoted: Visual Performances of Faith." He holds a Ph.D. in Art and Religion from the Graduate Theological Union in Berkeley and has published articles, encyclopedia entries, and reviews that span aesthetics, film, art, and religion.
