Come As You Art Pop-Up Gallery

The Dayton Society of Artists is pleased to announce their inaugural fundraiser, which will take place on October 11, 2019 from 7pm to 10pm at the Brightside in Dayton. Highlighted at the fundraiser will be a pop-up gallery featuring DSA members’ artistic talents. All mediums and styles will be accepted for consideration and you must be a member in good standing to apply. Registration is online-only through our website. The show will be juried by the DSA board.

There will be NO ENTRY FEE  to participate in the pop-up gallery; however, this show is serving as a  fundraiser for continued programming and operating costs for the DSA.  With that in mind, artists should price their work with the  understanding that the DSA will receive a 40% commission on all artworks  sold. Artwork must be for sale.

Acceptance of artwork does not come with personal entry to the fundraiser. Tickets will be available through the DSA’s website later in the year.

Registration Due September 15 at daytondsa.org/callsIf you have questions about applying online, contact the Gallery Director at 937-228-4532 or director@daytondsa.org
