PROCESS, ELIGIBILITY, MEDIA COVERAGE, EXPENSES AND PROGRAMS
The Dayton Visual Arts Center manages for basic installation, an opening reception and direct mail publications to promote the exhibition. Any additional expenses (special installation furniture or lighting, publications, shipping, etc.) will not be covered by The Dayton Visual Arts Center unless approved in advance by the Board of Trustees. The Dayton Visual Arts Center insures work during exhibition, but not during transit. Sale of work exhibited in the gallery is encouraged, but we do not require that exhibited work be for sale. The gallery commission is 40 percent. Selected proposals will be rewarded a modest stipend, an illustrated color brochure with a critical essay, digital documentation and an opportunity for the exhibition to travel to additional venues throughout the state of Ohio. Education for artists and the general public is an important part of DVAC’s mission. The organization actively seeks an audience for the work it shows and schedules gallery talks and other programs with visiting artists whenever possible.
ABOUT THE SPACE The gallery is 1,800 square feet and 200 feet of running wall space, including three moveable walls. The ceiling is 16 feet high, with 50 feet of wall space at that height; the rest of the walls are 10 feet high. Natural light comes in to the space through storefront windows with a west exposure. Exhibitions generally run between four and seven weeks. Exhibitions are sometimes expanded to include showing work offsite with community partners. The Dayton Visual Arts Center maintains professional standards in installation and presentation, but also serves as a multipurpose space for community events, lectures and receptions. Due to the nature of how this space is used, there may be some limitations on 3-D work. Artwork may need to be moved at times for events.
DVAC receives operating support from the Ohio Arts Council, Culture Works, Montgomery County Arts & Cultural District, The Dayton Power & Light Foundation and the Virginia W. Kettering Foundation. Community Partner Members include Houser Asphalt & Concrete, LMG-Lunne Marketing Group, LWC Inc., Mousaian Oriental Rugs , Premier Health, Square One Salon & Spa and members.
