Ed Dixon, owner and curator, at the Edward A. Dixon Gallery in Downtown Dayton has planned a 3rd exhibition for August 2023 centered around the theme of the gallery’s project, We’re Doing It ALL Wrong®. The project is a gallery initiative to highlight issues large and small that have persisted in cultures, institutions, organizations, spiritual lives and governments for far too long. The goal of the exhibition is to not only highlight these issues but create conversations that lead to new ways to tackle old problems.
This year’s call for entry received close to 200 entries from across the United States. 27 entries were selected by judges Amanda Wirig (Gallery Owner and Artists – Minneapolis, MN), Jamaal Durr (Artist – Dayton, OH) and Gallery Owner, Ed Dixon). Diabetes Drug Cost, Human Trafficking, Gun Violence and the Climate Emergency are among the topics addressed by the artists.
The Opening Reception for the exhibition is slated for Friday, August 4th from 6pm-9pm which also coincides with the Art in the City Preview Night downtown. A Non-Profit Night will occur on Friday, September 1st to help support local organizations with goals of making safer, more sustainable and equitable communities. The exhibition will end with a Closing Reception on Saturday, September 30th from 2pm-4pm.
WDIAW will be viewable Thursday through Sunday from 12pm-5pm each day except Friday from 4pm-8pm.
