2010 Biennial Call for Entries

Deadline: September 10, 2010 by 6 p.m. (RECEIVE)

2010 Biennial Call for Entries

The Dayton Visual Arts Center
Dayton, Ohio
2011-2012 and 2012-2013 Seasons

In addition to annual exhibitions and projects that highlight the work of member artists, The Dayton Visual Arts Center is preparing to schedule:

•Four to six exhibitions during each of the 2011-2012 and 2012-2013 seasons; including, if possible, one large solo show each year by a member artist.

•Two to four exhibitions for its annual REACH Across Dayton collaboration with Sinclair Community College, during winter/early spring 2012 and 2013.

REACH (Realizing Ethnic Awareness and Cultural Heritage) Across Dayton exhibits explore synergies between diverse cultures as expressed in the arts and humanities. Additional activities include a studies conference and workshops.

A three-person jury will review images from curators and artists; their recommendations will go to the programs and exhibitions committee, who then consider the full proposals; a schedule for two seasons is then approved by The Dayton Visual Arts Center’s Board of Trustees. Although we are a member-based organization, non-members are encouraged to apply to this call. Exhibitions may be scheduled to be concurrent. The exhibition space is quite flexible and is appropriate for large pieces and site-specific installations.

While the Dayton Visual Arts Center promotes local and regional artists through its programs and services, there is no geographic limit as to who may have an exhibit in the gallery.

All printed materials and media releases will be prepared by The Dayton Visual Arts Center.

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.

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.

The gallery is about 1,800 square feet with up to 200 feet of running wall space, including its 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.

The application fee for each proposal is $30; this fee is waived for the first application received from any current Dayton Visual Arts Center member.
