I’ve been visiting some of my favorite businesses to see how they weathered the pandemic. This is Ed Dixon at Edward A. Dixon Gallery (133 North Ludlow, Suite 11).
“I started this gallery to bring to Dayton the experience I had when I would visit galleries in New York or other large cities. I wanted it to offer a diverse collection of art in comfortable surroundings, and I wanted it to be welcoming to people no matter what their art or personal background.”
“Initially the gallery was in a large space near the Arcade but because of the pandemic I had to give that space up and move to this smaller space.”
“Because my current space is too small for a show, I rent space in the building on a short term basis for those kinds of special events. That’s what I’m doing now for my show called “We’re Doing it ALL Wrong.” The nationwide response to this show has been amazing. We had entries from all 50 states, and the pieces that were selected by the jurors are very strong. The show is open Fridays 4pm-8pm and Saturdays 1pm – 7pm until July 31.”
