Summer Space in the Oregon District

This summer, artist and Color of Energy gallery owner, Mike Elsass will be leading the creation of Summer Space; a program for emerging artists in the Oregon Arts District. Summer Space works to support many aspects of art, including youth and emerging artists, as well as promoting an arts culture in the city of Dayton. The program gives 10 artists a chance to work in their own studio space amongst a thriving arts community, and foster their own creative body of work. The program helps artists network and market their work, as well as collaborate with established, nationally recognized artists. The artists involved in Summer Space have set up their studios in the, until now, vacant Excelsior building on East Sixth Street, and will be working their for the remainder of the summer.

Summer Space artists are responsible, not only for creating their own body of work, but for many other arts related concerns, such as arts based community outreach, indiviudal art openings, and an artist exchange program, which will work to bring national artists’ work to Dayton, and promote Dayton artists’ work on a national level. Summer Space artists are expected to work in league with the Oregon Arts District in order to promote a healthy, community based arts culture.

The artists of Summer Space come from many places, work in many mediums, and are a variety of ages. Please welcome them to Dayton, and stay tuned for what the summer will bring.
