Celebrating Local Artists

creativesoulCreative Soul of Dayton is an art exhibit aimed at showcasing the highest quality of individual artistic achievement in the visual arts in the Dayton region. 170 Visual artists residing within a 25 mile radius of the city of Dayton share their artistic achievements with the community during this month-long exhibition.
“Creative Soul of Dayton represents a very diverse group of artists in terms of age, ethnicity, professional status and media,” said Susan Byrnes, director of the University of Dayton’s ArtStreet and lead exhibit organizer. “Everyone from 18-year-olds to octogenarians, college students to seasoned professionals, has contributed work. The exhibit will include sculpture, paintings and video, along with furniture, installation, fabric art and even a truck that is a work of art. This will be a very eclectic representation of Dayton creativity!”
Prize juror Eva Buttacavoli, independent curator and former director of exhibitions and education at the Austin Museum of Art, will award several prizes before the show opens.

Three artists were awarded best of show, and each will receive a solo exhibit of his or her work in Link Gallery in the Oregon Arts District, a sponsor of Creative Soul of Dayton, as well as exhibition and professional development consultation from Buttacavoli.  A “People’s Choice” Award will be announced at the closing reception at 8pm on Friday, Nov. 6th.
The Creative Soul of Dayton exhibition was developed by a joint committee of faculty and staff members from the University of Dayton, Wright State University, Central State University and Sinclair Community College, as well as community members and university students. The exhibition is sponsored in part by the University of Dayton Diversity Initiatives, ArtStreet, the Law Offices of Gottschlich and Portune LLP, the This Is Dayton initiative of DaytonCREATE, Link Gallery, and ServiceMaster Cleaning.
