The Dayton Society of Artists is proud to announce its partnership with the Dayton Sister City Committee to bring over an artist-in-residence from Monrovia, Liberia, one of Dayton's Sister Cities. Patrick Gono, a self taught artist will be in Dayton for the majority of July, 2019.
In conjunction with this program, the corresponding show is Crossing Boundaries. Crossing Boundaries celebrates the connections and discoveries that are made when we step outside of ourselves and broaden our understanding of the other. Different backgrounds, religions, cultures, abilities, and locations can divide, but in the end, we are all bound by the same humanity.

Juror Statement Spring Exhibition 2019:
Jurying the 2019 Spring Exhibition at the Dayton Society of Artist is a privilege that was not taken lightly. With one hundred and fifty eight submissions the exhibition could not contain the sheer talent submitted by Miami Valley artists. The process began looking at the technical expertise in each artwork. After which, I spent time with each artwork exploring content and looking for originality. Each artwork was selected because it spoke either quietly or loudly to a moment captured by the artist. After the exhibition was juried I then worked with Gallery Director Amanda Grieve to design the exhibition. Designing the exhibition ensured that each piece is appreciated on its own and in relationship to the exhibition as a whole.
The Dayton Society of Artists is pleased to announce its receipt of an Ohio Arts grant along with Spire Arts, a vocational and therapeutic art program for adults with developmental disabilities in Montgomery County. The Spire Arts show celebrates the artists, their work, as well as the collaboration between the two organizations.
